Marriage - a thing of the past?

A new Pew Research Center and Time Magazine Study finds FOUR in TEN Americans think that marriage is becoming obsolete.

Relationship expert Stacey Nelkin spent some time with Scott Fitzgerald at WERC - this morning... along with many more of our Fox stations:

"I'm all for marriage. I'm very saddened by this news. But - I - unfortunately I think it probably - you know - will be happening - that marriage will be obsolete in the future - I don't know the near future - but it looks like it's going that way. There's less and less reason for people to get married."

Also in the study - forty - two percent of self described conservatives are troubled over marriage becoming less popular - which they believe is happening - while overall sixty - seven percent of those surveyed say they are optimistic of the future of marriage and family - in America.

Buzzing onto the next big thing... 

An incoming District Attorney in California - vowing to prosecute any airport screeners who touch passengers inappropriately.

If convicted of a misdemeanor - screeners could face up to a year in jail.

If convicted of a felony - they would face up to three years in state prison.

Former Federal Prosecutor Ann Marie McAvoy spent time this morning with Charlie Parker at WOAI San Antonio:

Charlie Parker (WOAI): "Federal Prosecutor and Professor of Law at Fordham University - Ann Marie McAvoy joins us now. Ann Marie - let me - is this guy going to get very much business?"

Ann Marie McAvoy: "You know - it's a very difficult thing to actually enforce what he's trying to do. The theory is terrific. The problem is that in order to apply the law he's talking about it has to be done for sexual purposes. And they are going to say that this touching was not for any sexual purposes - it was done for security purposes and then he can't prosecute them for it."

And as Parker points out - among the jailable offenses:

Charlie Parker (WOAI): "Touching is a misdemeanor; skin on skin contact would be a felony."
