You are so right.
I am very distressed to see how shacking up has come to be viewed so casually even by many who consider themselves conservatives.
Among my children’s generation, GenX, it is no big deal. They are the same about homosexual “marriage”.
I am just astounded by the rapidity with which both of these concepts have gained acceptance, even among people of my generation. Positively mind boggling.
well, I'm a Gen X'er --> 34 y.o. but you are right that it seems to be ok. I blame the acceptance on television programmes that we were so fond of like Friends etc. Also, once you accept shacking up as normal, then accepting gay marriage is no biggie...
