    You're right.

    This plan……

    Graduate High School
    Get a Job
    Get Married
    Have Children
    Stay with your family.

    Is very complex. How can anyone possible figure it out?

    Do you have "L" and "R" written on the inside of your shoes??? Maybe velcro instead of laces on your AJs?.

    No plan works 100% for everyone. I'm sure there are Ivy League grads that can't get a job or are on the dole. But it has been fairly well proven that if you……

    Graduate High School
    Get a Job
    Get Married
    Have Children
    Stay with your family.

    …then your chances of avoiding poverty are greatly reduced.

    Maybe it would help if we can get the climate change "experts" to agree with that formula. Anyone have Jane's phone number???

    How does having children or getting married reduce your chances of poverty?

    Here's what you don't get………

    Following that simple (or complex, depending on who you are) formula isn't what reduces your chance of poverty. It increases you chance of being a responsible person.

    Being a responsible person reduces your chance of living in poverty.

    Think it through a little.

    A person can be responsible and not be married or have children. Actually, children are a financial burden, much more then way back in the olden days when you had young children. That's what you don't get.

    Bolded…never said otherwise.

    Look…that entire concept…
    Graduate High School
    Get a Job
    Get Married
    Have Children
    Stay with your family.
    …deals with personal planning, sensible judgement, accepting responsibility etc.

    All qualities that will greatly help one to avoid poverty.

    I have 2 kids. All I could afford. I would like to have had more. I see people all the time with numerous kids they can't afford. Then we get into===>SNAP, Food Stamps, Public Assistance, Unemployment, Housing Assistance etc.

    What is it that I get that they don't? As many here could attest … I'm not all that bright.

    And before you start on how kids sometimes just happen, come up with a medical condition that is easier to avoid than pregnancy.

    I don't know about the kids part, but statistically I'm pretty sure Sluggo's right and there is a correlation between graduating High School, getting a job and getting married making you less likely to stay in poverty.

    Sounds a lot like common sense doesn't it.

    Oops. Can't use common sense here, Sorry.

    Well your common sense ended when you added the biggest financial suck into the equation. Also Graduating college is even better than graduating Highschool (And if you graduate college you are more likely to marry someone who will make more money to).

    Doing the responsible thing doesn't make you responsible... that's a trait you are coming to the situation with. Do you know anyone who got married simply because it was the "responsible thing to do?" You think that is a marriage that will last?

    You had some common sense. But I don't think you understood why. Education = JOB. Job = Money. Marriage = financial stability in case you lose your job (2 incomes).

    So I was right.
