Marriage, College and Baby Boomers

I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors. They send me a newsletter/trade journal-type thing quarterly. Excellent piece of work for my profession. Toward the back is my favorite section from a guy named Gary D. Foster called The Foster Report. It is a whole page filled with random facts, research and stats from the Christian world. Check him out at GaryDFoster.com. From Gary we find this week’s Quote of the Week. Actually a couples of quotes.

The first on marriage:

The National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia had found that just 11% of college-educated Americans divorce within the first 10 years of marriage, compared with almost 37% for the rest of the U.S. population.

Stay in school kids. It’s good for your marriage!

Now for one near and dear to my heart, the baby boomers:

Some 10,000 Baby Boomers will turn 65 today and every day for the next 20 years.

I think I will go check on my 401K, or 403b, or my piggy bank. Yikes!
