IMHO this is an area where Dragaeran textev just doesn't hold up.  Given
the apparent small family size, relative rarity of marriage, and amazingly
high number of people getting killed, textev inevitably leads one to the
conclusion that Dragaerans are in a steep population implosion.
Realize that life is a situation comedy that will never be canceled.  A
laugh track has been provided, and the reason why we are put in the
material world is to get more material.
