Hindsight was so 20/20 when the housing market collapsed in 2008 but even then, nobody questioned Time Magazine's cover story. The government bailed out the lenders and the economists touted a financial correction.

How 20/20 will it be in hindsight if same-sex couples failed to sustain a family structure which inherently favors heterosexual couples? I don't know that. What I do know is that further erosion of the American family will, eventually, cause a lot of brouhaha. The government will not have the currency to bail us out and the priests will preach a moral correction. Our children will have some stark choices to make.  

But the choice for Time Magazine will be easy: flip again and simply reprint the 1995 cover, forecasting "a growing movement to strengthen marriage."
