unmarriage revolution
 n.— «The increasingly sophisticated, market-driven technology eventually joined forces with what I call the “unmarriage revolution”—that is, the decoupling of marriage and child rearing—and extended itself to single women and lesbians. As early as the seventies, a small number of lesbians were bypassing the medical establishment by procuring the necessary body fluid from male friends or acquaintances, and buying a mason jar and a turkey baster from the local hardware store.» —“The Incredible Shrinking Father” by Kay S. Hymowitz City Journal (New York City) Spring, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
