Young people embrace idea of serial marriage where there is a different partner for each phase of life, according to Barna survey
George Barna, the pollster, released results from a new poll on marriage and divorce. It seems to say that lots of people get married and lots of people get divorced. We know that already. But this quote from his poll summary carries a jolt for anybody who wants to see their kids stay married:
"There no longer seems to be much of a stigma attached to divorce; it is now seen as an unavoidable rite of passage," the researcher indicated. "Interviews with young adults suggest that they want their initial marriage to last, but are not particularly optimistic about that possibility.
"There is also evidence that many young people are moving toward embracing the idea of serial marriage, in which a person gets married two or three times, seeking a different partner for each phase of their adult life."
