Re "A 'gray divorce' boom," Opinion, March 31 Susan L. Brown picks up on the current spate of columns about the meaning of marriage in our Western societies. She writes, "Men and women who are 65 can expect to live 20 more years, a long time to spend with someone you may not like so much anymore. " It strikes me as most symptomatic of the brainless, emotionless, semi-stuporous society of babes bred in bottles in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World. " To those of this temperament, baby boomer marriages are lived through with someone you like or once liked, but "not so much anymore," as though we choose to "like" or "not like" our mates by pressing a link on a computer screen.

Looks as if Bethenny Frankel's estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, is one big copycat - at least when it comes to filing for divorce. Hoppy's list of demands looks suspiciously like Frankel's, according to TMZ . He reportedly wants primary custody of their 2-year-old daughter Bryn, plus child support, as well as primary custody of their marital house. That's the same house the reality TV star said she wanted when she filed for divorce a few weeks back. Same daughter too. Beyond that, he's reportedly looking for the same benefits-style package she styled for herself: medical and dental for himself and the kid, with a life insurance policy on his ex-to-be that would benefit him and Bryn.
