Little correction of my last comment here. See the outrageous saturation of our society with immorality,...
Modern marriage is often just the first stage of divorce. After the wife initiates the second "formal divorce" stage, the man learns that when he chose to marry he also unintentionally agreed to subjugate himself to a series of feminist judges in the family court system. If there are kids, that subjugation continues for many years after the marriage is gone. Eventually chump-hubby learns to call the ongoing nightmare his "life."
Strangely enough, those men tell their friends, and word gets around.
—>>>I can tell you why. The most publicized and/or influential ‘60s counter-culture kids were the children of the crop of the most influential constituents before them. They were bound to be in influential positions. It’s not all merit-based (”who you know”). The moral slide was gradual at first and not so much noticed, then accelerated. Notice what the moral slide has done to potential new competition (crushed scattered families, regulations, “free” trade, political correctness and so on).
Great comments and so agree. Thank you for sharing with me.
As with many things, government is much to blame. When government took over caring for people (social security, medicare, medicaid, welfare), then families were no longer a means of financial support. Now with the army of counselors and do-gooders, families aren’t even expected to provide emotional support. Uncle Sam has become husband, daddy, and caretaker of our elderly. Not going well, is it?
I've seen exactly this with several of my close friends. Now, every day I come home and my clothes aren't in a pile in the driveway, I THANK GOD, and give my wife a BIG hug.
Honestly... given what she COULD have gotten? I don't know why she didn't leave me. I think, I would have left me... :-(
I have two sons... and, I have VERY mixed feeling about whether or not I want them to marry. I have taught them one thing for sure: Getting "married" doesn't really change your life that much.. you just know who your date is. Having CHILDREN.. CHANGES EVERYTHING... It's a 21 year economic contract.. that may, or may not involve being able to enjoy your children.
Anymore... ? I'm not sure the risks are worth it. I feel EXTREMELY LUCKY, after 30 years of marriage... but, it's STILL a day-to-day thing.
My first was in 1977... it finally happened after about 6 MONTHS of progressively heavier petting.. and begging, and groveling....I must have rounded 20 bases trying to get home!
In the end, I didn't marry that one...
A few years later, my wife gave way MUCH quicker.... about 1 1/2 hours after we first touched one another. But then, we'd been "friends" for 7+ years...so, I guess she COULD claim a longer time. She STILL fires me up quickly! :-)
Be careful who you marry.
Personally, I think it is because we subsidize bastardy.
BTW: No Irish Need Apply signs have never been historically documented.
Im in my late forties, so I saw Logans run way back when. It was the canary in the coal mine. It accurately describes what our society has become. The only thing that it doesnt accurately portray is the whole hand crystal thing. There wont be security forces terminating runners. People will self-terminate. With the majority of Americans unprepared for retirement (yes we all get too old to work), the younger generation unable to find work, and the destruction of the family, there will be no way to survive. Suicide will become the norm. The great social programs are all going bankrupt. 17 trillion of national debt increased yearly by trillion dollar deficits). 80 to 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities (SS, Medicare, public sector pensions) and 1.2 quadrillion (1000 trillion) in derivatives (next ephemeral wealth bubble getting ready to burst). I was born at the beginning of the sexual revolution and have witnessed first-hand the beginning to end destruction brought about by progressive ideals. I dont blame any political party. I blame we the people. Weve destroyed ourselves. Our political leaders were voted in by us. They reflect our collective values (or lack thereof). If you chose to live your life responsibly, youll be the one to pay the highest price. Disillusionment is the state of being freed of illusions, enchantments and false beliefs.
A whole generation of young people will look back someday and notice they had no real childhood, no real innocent childhood sweethearts, no real romances-just meaningless hookups and nothing to have fond memories about....
I dont think they will be too happy about it
So true, when the beauty and thrill of youth fades, the reality of adulthood will come crashing down.....
