Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in the Leader and Times on October 24, 2015. "To get the full value of joy," Mark Twain wrote in Following the Equator, "you must have someone to divide it with." In other words, the redoubtable Samuel Langhorne Clemens was saying, only marriage enables two people to experience the fullness of life's good things.
