A childs view of marriage

My niece aged 3 years came home from playschool the other day and told her mother that jonni's mommy and daddy live together. "Now isn't that funny!" she says.

Depending on your personal convictions, this may or may not be an indictment of modern society that a child thinks that it is normal to only have one parent living with him/her. Since more than 50% of marriages end in divorce it seems to me that normal is no longer a couple with their biological offspring living together and that our vision of normal may need some revision.
