Well the wimmin wanted the sexual revolution, yet still cast as the perrenial victims. And if the familymis sooooo important look at who’s filing for no-fault divorce at a more than 4:1 ratio.
A little more than 18.5 years ago, a bomb went off in my world when my first wife demanded a divorce. I was 44. Up to that point, everything I did was done for my family and their well-being.
At the time my oldest son was 17 and the youngest was 12. The separation made it difficult for me to be the father I wanted to be. Though the divorce was civil and we have always cooperated in dealing with our sons, they clearly encountered problems as a direct result of the divorce. It still grieves me to no end that our family broke apart. There was no good reason for it, but I was given no choice. I will go to my grave mourning the fact that it happened.
This past weekend, after all those years, I married my 2nd wife. She is awesome, good as gold and I love her, and I am very lucky to have her. But I still mourn the breakup of my family. I cannot ignore the wreckage. I have learned in life there are some things you just don't get over . . . for me, it was the break-up of my family.
Women and men are more confused than ever about relationships.
My son's friend plays women psychologically, has sex with them and then dumps them. In an earlier time, this would have not been allowed. Heck, simply holding hands might have been frowned upon without a chaperon. BTW, my son is appalled. Kudos to him. I told him that this is why women hate men. Of course, a women is not going to be a good mate after an experience like this.... unless the guy is looking for one night stands.
Anyway, we are told that women should be happy with this arrangement. No need to go into the complexities of male-female relationships but this kind of relationship is not at all healthy.
This is where the 60s sexual revolution got it wrong, so wrong. And the damage may be beyond repair.
One could argue that the “sexual revolution” started with the passage of the 18th and 19th amendments to the Constitution...
