  • Maybe, but it will be a sad day, where's the romance? I admire couples who still marry and settle down. I like seeing old couples together having braved a lifetime together to the point they become one person.

  • They already do. Some choose to others are simply abandoned by their husbands/fathers. But there are also the options of adoption, fostering, and mentoring. There are children already out there who need parenting in alternate forms. (usually because the sperm donor left!)

  • Like Linda Joy said, it already happens. It won't become a widespread thing, though, because the women who don't want to be tied down with a family life aren't going to go out of their way to be tied down with children, either. Just look at Japan. They gave their women careers and suddenly the birth rate dropped significantly. Hardly anybody who's busy with a frantic life trying to climb the corporate ladder is busy obsessing about having kids.

  • A father figure is very important. It was for me. In tribal societies the tribe was the guardians of the children., In todays world it is less common to live communally yet it does occur. Being raised by only one parent gives me only one primary role model and guide. And most importantly the demonstration of love with a mate and demonstration of how two work out problems and differences has great value also (even if the relationship has some disfunction)
