The culture changed fast. When I graduated from grade school, no one was divorced. When my sister graduated, 50% of the class was divorced. Insane!

The fact that you ‘graduated’ from grade school points to the ‘self-esteem’ movement that’s also part of the problem.

When I was in high school, the sophomore class president and the senior class president were girls. Both girls got pregnant during that school year. Both girls were shipped off by their parents to live with relatives so as to avoid the shame.

That's what people did back then. Unwed motherhood was a disgrace.

When my kids attended that same school years later, not only was an unwed mother not a disgrace, the school actually had a day care center for children of the students so that the students could finish high school. It was no longer a disgrace. We're talking the difference from 1966 to 1996?
