Divorce no longer hip w/smart set - NYT

In "How Divorce Lost Its Cachet" - NYTimes.com 6/17/11, the Times's Pamela Paul gives some examples from Park Slope, home of the trendiest of the trendies, but backs them up with well-known statistics on the decline and delay of divorce among the college-educated, especially once they have children. She relates it to changes in marriage that have made men better-behaved, and notes that while marriage a generation ago really could be an enslaving, unpleasant institution, the children of that generation now see it as something hard but worthwhile, like yoga. Ultimately, she finds this trend very consistent with what she found in her book on "Starter Marriages" almost ten years ago, when young people were eager to divorce before they had children who would be subjected to it.
