Jessica Asked: How can I write a good thesis statment about marriage and divorce?
I'm preparing a speech on cohabitation, marriage and somewhat divorce. It's mainly about how cohabitation and other issues effect marriage and how to have a healthy marriage. I'm never really good at starting speeches so if someone could possibly help me, that would be greatly appreciated. So far I have the following for my thesis and Attention getter but i'm not sure if that is even right.
I. Attention Getter: Good Morning, My name is Jessica Cervantes. Have you ever sat there and wondered if your relationship could end up becoming a long lasting marriage? I wouldnt be surprised if you did, its actually quite common. According to the Census Bureau Over 50% of marriages end up in divorce, hiring dramatically every time you get remarried
II. Thesis Statement: With the divorce rate so high, it causes couple to re-evaluate their relationships to see if there partner could possibly be the one.

Evaluation: Does Recycling really make a difference? Although it is true that one person's recycling may not make much of a difference, in fact, when all of us join together we can make a difference because when we all recycle: less waste goes into landfills, reusing things becomes more natural, and people get into better habits.
Explaining: How does playing a sport affect young people? Most people would say that learning how to play is the most important thing children get from a sport. In fact, children who play sports gain even more from learning about teamwork, realizing they must overcome defeat, and accepting their own place on a team.
Argument: Should parents be concerned if their children are obsessed with horror movies? Although many people scoff at the idea of movies as really influencing our behavior, in reality, parents need to be concerned about what their children are watching because children often can't tell reality from fiction, violent images desensitize us to real violence, and kids who watch violence obsessively may be exhibiting signs of deeper emotional problems.
