Two important articles about the economics of marriage

This City Journal article is quite profound; basically, it says that while educated, upper-class women may talk the talk about not needing men to raise children, etc, they don't walk the walk - and live married lives that would be quite recognizable to their grandparents in the 1950s. And well they do: their sisters at the other economic end of the universe walk the walk, having children out of wedlock and getting divorced frequently, and live broke and can do little to improve economic prospects for their children because of it.

This article is less profound, but points out that divorce is a good way to fry your net worth and enrich lawyers.
