  • Why don’t many people believe in marriage?

     It’s disturbing to me as a young woman, that no one seems to believe in getting married anymore. People just seem to have kids left and right with numerous partners at their own discretion. When did that become the norm?

    I look forward to the security that comes with having a husband and a house for my children one day. It gives a family stability.

    For a population that is so used to wanting everything right away,  it makes sense they just leave a relationship when it gets hard. They’re not married so they don’t feel an obligation.

       Both the Bullitt East and Bullitt Central high school baseball programs held their annual summer youth camps this year with a good number of young players taking part.
