When I say “Married with Children,” I am not invoking memories of Al Bundy, but to simply be married, when young, and having children, is considered an “alternative lifestyle.” Here is more on this scandelous trend in getting married and having kids…
Last night, NBC Washington tweeted out a link to a story about freestyle skiing halfpipe gold medalist David Wise:
The link goes to a story on NBC headlined “David Wise’s alternative lifestyle leads to Olympic gold.”
So what could it be? Is he pangendered? Is he polygamous? Is he dwelling in a commune eating only raw foods? Is he living off the grid and existing on the barter system? What could it be?
At only twenty-three years old, he has a wife, Alexander, who was waiting patiently in the crowd, and together they have a two-year-old daughter waiting for them to return to their home in Reno, Nevada. At such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult. He wears a Baby Bjorn baby carrier around the house. He also attends church regularly and says he could see himself becoming a pastor a little later down the road.
Wow, that’s really radical.
I must a freak of sorts. My parents were married at 18-19, and stayed that way until my father passed away. My mother was a stay at home mom, who made sure that hot meals were served, and the kids were cared for while my father worked. Myself, my brother, and my sister are all college educated, have careers, and children of their own. Good for us that our parents had an “alternative lifestyle,” right?
