The Snob recently got published in Gil L. Robertson, IV's new essay compilation book Where Did Our Love Go? It's a book about black love and marriage and what has changed about both those things in recent years. I contributed a chapter on why marriage is less popular than it used to be under the "divorced" section called "The Problem With Marriage." As long-time Snob readers know, I was briefly married in my early 20s and watched that bake, crack and dry up in the hot West Texas sun. It hasn't made me bitter, but it did open my eyes to some realities about myself and what marriage is and isn't.
