The fall of pre-50's culture has done nothing but improve our society.
    lol. that's funny. let's see the feminist blog you have to link for this assertion. i'll get a real kick out of it, i'm sure.

    With all due respect Lewstherin, if you are going to inject "Stats" into your argument (which you've allude to such), it would be really nice if you included "your stats" to support your position. It's not that we don't believe you. Lord knows we trust your every word, but for the sake of argument, appease us.

    Feminist blog? One need only know a cursory amount about being married in the 50's to understand the concept and why this is a "good old days" fallacy.

    It would also be nice you'd tell me exactly how society is falling. Society works better for more people than it ever has, as evidenced by longer life-spans, more upwards mobility, and that was once an institution of convenience in the age you aspire to is now an institution of love.

    Everyone knows the divorce rate is higher, and I don't see anyone denying it. This is due to social acceptability of leaving a broken marriage. That's a good thing.

    no...this is due to the degradation of honesty and integrity.

    How is it honest to stay married to someone you can't stand? Is it simply the principle of the thing? Is it a good reason to stay unhappy for the rest of your life? Is the chunk of metal so important that people should spend their lives like that?

    You really don't have any understanding of the time you wish to go back to.

    "vows" are promises. if a person isn't willing to keep a "vow", then they shouldn't make a "vow".
    for better or for worse, for sickness and in health. love, honor and obey. that's the "vow".
    i say what i mean. i have that much honor still, even in today's sick world.
