i was having this conversation the other day that it seems so casual and okay to get divorced or be a single parent in our modern day society. I am not saying that it isnt okay, i personally couldnt care less what other people do and it isnt hurting anyone.
But just 50 years ago, getting divorced was HIGHELY frowned upon. you wouldnt just get a divorce if your husband called you a bitch, hell you probably wouldnt even get a divorce if you found out your husband was playing with his secretary! it had to be an EXTREME case to actually get divorced.
Same goes for having a child out of wedlock. 50 years ago people would rush to get married and then spin a tale about how they must have gotten pregnant on their wedding night or how the baby came a little "early", or something along those lines. Or the woman would go "visit" a relative out of town for awhile, have the baby, give it up for adoption, and then come home.
yet, here we are today, and people get divorced all the time. lots of times not even for major reasons. they are just sick of being married to each other. People actually PLAN to have kid's out of wedlock. (no judging, my first born was born out of wedlock and both of my parents have been married and divorced twice or more). I was just wondering when this all became so casual and something we just shrugged our shoulders at?
do you think it is a good thing we are so open-minded now? or do you think it is a bad thing and we have lost our values?
