(or I was shipwrecked in Hawaii, but that's almost the same thing)
The class: Fundamentals of Research.
The issue: Hypotheses.
The fact: Poor people have higher divorce rates than middle-class and rich people do (2000 census data).
Hypothesis 1: Poor people have more stress in their lives, therefore higher tension yields more marriage strain.
Hypothesis 2: Poor people have less education, so their poorer negotiating skills result in more marriage strain.
My bet: Hypothesis 1.
George W's bet: Hypothesis 2 (http://www.feminist.org/news/newsbyte/uswirestory.asp?id=8251).
The cure: $1.5 billion allocated for marriage classes.
My question: Can poor gay couples take them?
