If a column is made a primary key and later there needs a change in the data type or
the length for that column then all the foreign keys that are dependent on that
primary key should be changed making the database Unstable . Surrogate Keys make
the database more stable because it insulates the Primary and foreign key
relationships from changes in the data types and length.
