David Quinn: Rising divorce rate no help to any society
IF you want a good example of the lasting scars divorce can leave on those who were children when their parents divorced, then look no further than the actor Jon Hamm, who plays Don Draper, the charismatic lead in 'Mad Men', the hit drama back on our TV screens this week.
Hamm has been living with his partner for the last 15 years. He was recently asked why they have never married.
He answered as follows: "I don't have a particularly defined example of marriage in my life ... My parents got divorced when I was two and never remarried. So it (marriage) doesn't mean anything to me."
