I love to read obits, wedding announcements, birth announcements to get a sense of how society is changing. These weddings in The New York Times reflect many things: the 1% in our society are doing well, getting married in their late 20s to early 30s, with both working professionally and almost half having met in school, usually college or grad school (one couple met in 2nd grade). This week, this is still a group that is predominantly white, East Coast, well educated (30 percent Ivy League) working in business rather than in law and medicine.  Still a small percentage of gay and lesbian weddings and minority weddings. Few teachers and PhDs. A lot of weddings officiated by priests, ministers, rabbis, cantors and Hindu priest. Not one unemployed or looking for work.
