Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social (and sometimes nostalgic) aspects that directly effects Generation Reagan / Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.

"Clucky"? Is this a common expression? I've never heard it before. I can make a guess of the meaning based on the content of the story, but am I out of touch for not having heard this expression before?
I never liked Jennifer Anniston. Plastic, shallow, bad actress with a foofy haircut.
Also, I bet Brad Pitt could find 100,000 women that would immediately roll over on their back and put their feet in the air if he said he wanted to have a baby.
But, as a man ages, he no longer feels the need to sleep with so many supermodels, and begins to cut back in this area.
Why doesn't Brad just get himself another girlyman and adopt.

"Loyalty to work is dead," Korn says. "Increasingly people are recognising what's really important is having children."
Whether this is about movie stars or just plain folk, it's nice to see the pendulum swinging back the other way, isn't it?
I married my DH because he was a SUPERB father to his son, who was three when we first met. (His career-driven girlfriend bailed on him after he convinced her not to abort; he kept the kid. This happened to his brother, too.) He made it clear that they were a Package Deal and that they BOTH had to fall in love with me, or all bets were off. He didn't let me meet his son until after we had dated for close to eight months.
Now that, my friends, is sex appeal in my book. Never have really met another man like him, except his brother. Needless to say, they have a terrific Mother whom I respect and adore, too! I'm extremely blessed to have been welcomed into an awesome family full of loving and responsible people. In this case, they really do do it "for the children." I have 15 neices and nephews; our lives really are all about the kids, and the first three (including ours) are ready to finally fly the coop and head for college. :)
People should thoroughly discuss having (or not having) kids *before* they get married. Duh.
People have responded by not marrying or by putting marriage off. In some states, a good number of people have simply married the same sex.
The lower fertility might point to a higher level of freedom, yes, but of course the long-run result is a demographic disaster...
Some love springs eternal.
What an awful statement. Perhaps, this woman should remember that when decrying the lack of committment-ready men.
I also thought that was the key sentence. What's going on behind this article is that you can have a successful career and still feel empty. It's all about feeling empty. Maybe having a kid would make you feel better. But I don't know how hopeful this attitude really is. If you want a kid purely for self-gratification, it probably won't help much. In building a family you need to give in order to receive, and I don't know if many Hollywood types are capable of that.
Also, there is nothing like a woman standing there expecting her a$$ to get kissed, with the man just turning around and walking away forever.
Right. I believe that like I believe John Effin' was a duck hunter.
Let's see......they both spent A LOT of their married life apart, especially the last year. Sorry, but if either one of them gave much of a damn they'd choose to spend their time together.
Oh, and making movies with a woman who sleeps around doesn't help either. My opinion is he cheated on her and that's that. This just follows the pattern of many, many other Hollywierd marriages, in my opinion. The truth will eventually come out so we'll see.
