I did this little piece about the difference between living common law as a new longterm relationship norm and getting married. The comments are always fun. There’s a note on behalf of All Divorced Canadian Men telling me to stuff it, as well as the usual clever atheist drawing out the fact that Christians are Loons Who Cannot Think. Truthfully, I privately take bets on how early that remark will arrive. It makes it fun. Now the challenge for everyone else is to replace “Christian” with “Jewish” (“They are not to be trusted! They twist arguments!”) so that we all understand how clearly bigoted that kind of remark is. Tis the new normal. And if I couldn’t take it, I wouldn’t write columns.
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
