“Criticism is something you can easily avoid by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” ~Aristotle
Of utmost importance to the well-being of children is whether their parents were married, the nature and duration of the marriage, and, more broadly, the culture and expectations of marriage and child care where they live. Two scholars of the family explain: “Throughout history, marriage has first and foremost been an institution for procreation and raising children. It has provided the cultural tie that seeks to connect the father to his children by binding him to the mother of his children. Yet in recent times, children have increasingly been pushed from center stage.”
A Harvard law professor describes the current law and attitude toward marriage and divorce: “The [current] American story about marriage, as told in the law and in much popular literature, goes something like this: marriage is a relationship that exists primarily for the fulfillment of the individual spouses. If it ceases to perform this function, no one is to blame and either spouse may terminate it at will. … Children hardly appear in the story; at most they are rather shadowy characters in the background.”
Can’t sleep so I’m…

I’m going to do the 7min max burpees and check my numbers. My WORST exercise (after handstand pushups after muscle ups). Should be an interesting one.

I like reading about what people were thinking and how they got to where they are. Possibilities. Anyone out there can sing and dance?
