Markdown from Ulysses Rendered Improperly

I have a document that I wrote in Ulysses that has a single carriage return at the end of a paragraph. But when I export it to a docx from Marked 2 the single carriage return gets rendered as a line break, not as a paragraph mark. I think this is incorrect. I should only need one carriage return at the end of each paragraph.

    This work was all done in a Ulysses external folder in Markdown (not Markdown XL)

    In standard Markdown a single line break is ignored, and consecutive lines are joined together. If you enable "preserve line breaks", a single line newline creates a line break. In neither case dies a single newline create a paragraph.

    That said, DOCX export in Marked is a bit quirky, especially compared to Ulysses export.
