It's good to see people are taking their time and not listening to
religious dogma or societal commentary about what marriage is or isn't.
Hopefully this trend of patience and thoughtful self reflection will lead
lowering the divorce rate in America. The ways of the past just aren't
cutting it in this regard.
The reason is simple: Gynocentrism and egalitarianism has destroyed marriage.
Return the authority to men and people will start getting and staying married
again. This is how the Amish do it and their divorce rate is
practically 0%. This principle is in the Bible. But nobody, not even
Christians, wants to hear the truth anymore.
Moral values have changed:* many single folks live together without
marrying.* seems, more same gender folks want to a merry each other than
opposite genders do.* many folks want to change their gender.* in
the world of entertainment, fathers are made to look silly.
I would rather not be single, but sometimes life does not always go the way you
would like it to. Most of the time I am alright being single, but after being
married many years ago, I do miss coming home to someone. In the meantime I work
real hard to remain patient with Heavenly Father and his promise to me that one
day I strife to enjoy life as much as possible just just for what it is meant
to be. I am not rich by no means, but that doesn't matter. What matters is
you make the best of your situation. Being positive goes a long ways and so does
I have long thought that many single people without children would get to the
end of life and wonder what it was all for anyway. Some will, some won't.
But, I now think that within a generation, young Americans are going
to begin to realize that old age can be quite perilous and downright scary if
one does not have any family members taking care of them, or at least looking
out for their interests at the end of their lives. There will likely
be a renewed interest in one of the most important reasons people in the third
world have children--so they can take care of you in your old age.
