Was watching Fireproof last night with our family.

It reminded me of something I thought about previously - divorce and houses.

Suppose 60 million couples get divorced, but only half of them re-marry again.

That means instead of 60 million homes, 90 million will be needed, due to 60 million INDIVIDUALS who may live as singles in their own home.

How many trees must be cut down for 30 million homes?

How much demand on the power grid? How much metal? Glass? Driveways? Septic services? And so on.

Isn't it amazing the crunch that people can put on our resources when 2 people for one reason or another, and not able to succeeed in their marriage?

Divorce may cause one of the most subtle and drastic Footprints.
