No. No. No. No. No.

Absolutely not. It would be ‘yet another boomer handshake’. It gets done it will not go away. Boomers want accommodations for their former lives, but they should not get it no matter how much they stamp their feet. For once it should actually work that NO means no.

Some of us young uns are trying to hold the line on marriage. The last thing we need are boomers going behind our back, again, and doing the same thing they’ve done for everyone.

I’m not talking about young people.

Actually, many of the boomers, as you refer to them, are still married. It’s people in the next generation (their children, who are in their 30s or 40s now) who received no religious instruction, thanks to Vatican II, and got no moral or ethical formation.

I think that those from that intermediate generation who got enough wisdom to stick it out and remain Catholic, even if their marriage collapsed at some point, should be reconciled.

And then we have to start afresh and make it clear that this is not ok.

Power of numbers, power of numbers sadly does not go in your favor because the boomers has the hugh numbers in regards to its size.
