In Hollywood it seems the saying goes, “first comes love, then comes baby, and after a sufficient amount of the baby weight has been lost, sometimes then comes marriage.” Celebrities have tried to impress on Americans just how outdated the practice of marriage is, while at the same time claiming that gay marriage is a basic human right. Marriage is unimportant, unless one identifies as gay, in which case it is the penultimate human experience.
Kids these days, though, are smarter than we give them credit for. For quite some time, according to their parents, the many children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been pushing for the pair to tie the knot. These children understand that marriage is the ultimate glue that holds together not just a couple, but also a family. And to their credit, according to representatives for the pair, the couple made it official over the weekend in France. According to The Heritage Foundation the Jolie-Pitt children will now “have, on average, higher academic achievement, better emotional health, and fewer behavioral problems.” Congrats to the happy couple, and to the more stable family unit!
