Casual affairs

What's happened to the sanctity of marriage? In the past two weeks, we've been bombarded with headlines of philandering husbands and behind-the-scenes wives. Worse, the media hasn't considered the kids' feelings as new lascivious tidbits are released.

And then we tell our children to get and stay married. With 50 percent of marriages failing and an increase in "starter marriages," what are we really showing our kids? Remember the old adage, "Actions speak louder than words." If we want a country where people stay together - for better and for worse - we're going to have to rethink whether it's worth sensationalizing extra-marital affairs.
