Here’s one for Dobson and the anti-gay marriage crowd. Bush has managed to partially fullfill a campaign pledge from 2004: Strengthen Traditional Marriage.
The rate of divorce is more likely to fall than rise in the economic downturn, but chances are that it will stay the same if history is any guide, said attorneys who specialize in the area.
The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers said in a press release that 37% of its members who responded to a recent survey said that the divorce rate typically drops during economically challenging times and only 19% said the rate typically climbs, while 44% said there
's no change in the rate.
These are challenging times and the divorce rate typically drops when the economy is flailing. For an administration with little to show in way of accomplishments, here is one for Dobson, the wingnuts at The Corner and all their dwindling posse to be proud of. Bush pulled out all the stops and came through for you guys on this, finally.
Rejoice for your fealty to Bush has brought forth a great VICTORY. Celebrate in the streets. Traditional Marriage has been STRENGTHENED.
