We are so tempted to go with the crowd. And yet, a cursory review of a few nationwide statistics about marriages ending in divorce, out-of-wedlock birthrates, incidence of depression and mounting consumer debt reveal:
- The crowd is miserable.
- The crowd is struggling.
- The crowd is broke.
Don’t go with the crowd. Be different. Be weird. Live within your means. Abstain from extra-marital sex. Serve your spouse with love and patient devotion. Take joy in the Lord.
