Tom Patterson’s column, “Marriage gap contributes to inequality,” seems to leave out the harsh realities of inequality in America. Tens of millions of Americans struggle to survive economically, while the wealthiest people are doing very well and corporate profits are at an all time high. In fact, wealth and income inequality is greater today than at any time before the great depression. One family now owns more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of Americans. In recent years 95 percent of all new income has gone to the top 1 percent. How can Mr. Patterson say the “key to the whole deal, the most basic explanation of what’s going on is the marriage gap?” Nations will not survive when so few have so much and so many have so little. It has nothing to do with a “marriage gap.”
