Children benefit most from loving, financially stable (and safe) households where they are well educated and entertained in healthy ways. Marriage does not prevent that, nor does it prevent a man and woman from participating equally in a partnership. I'd rather have that than a dysfunctional marriage any day..most of the marriages I've known about were dysfunctional...some more than others and the children suffered. I am too independent spirited to be a wife but I like the idea of a partnership. But who know? I might change my mind...but I doubt it.
