Did I just read that?

From Time Magazine, July 13, 2009, page 47:

"The reason for these appeals to lasting unions is simple: on every single significant outcome related to short-term well-being and long-term success, children from intact, two-parent families outperform those from single-parent households. Longevity, drug abuse, school performance and dropout rates, teen pregnancy, criminal behavior and incarceration — if you can measure it, a sociologist has; and in all cases, the kids living with both parents drastically outperform the others."

So kids from two-parent households grow up to be long-lived, drug abusing criminals--and THAT is success?
