A sign of the American times

Checking out official documents today for the immigration services, I noticed that the forms only provide two lines for the person making the application to list their former spouses. “Hmmm,” I pondered rather formally to myself. “That really doesn’t seem to be enough space at a time when marriage appears to be less valued than any previous stage in the institution’s history.”

And then I turned the page and saw a continuation sheet with specifically reserved space for a further 38 ex-spouses to be listed.

Welcome to America!
