The growth of industry and wealth in the 1950s.
The shift from manufacturing to technology/information from the 1960s to present.
This is such a stupid response that I have difficulty responding. The women's movement actually began in the late 1880s. Since that time, the U.S. has had MULTIPLE economic shifts lasting for decades.The info/tech economy didn't hit until 1997. Did you mean that you think our society has been in decline only since 1997?
I don't think you know what those terms mean.No fault divorce laws have had an impact but the evidence I've seen so far concludes correlation and not causation. For instance, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and Georgia have the most relaxed divorce laws and have the highest divorce rates in the country.
*sigh*is that because of "no fault" divorce or do people simply get divorced without being asked for the cause? Just because you get a divorce and don't tell the state that your husband beats you doesn't mean he didn't.
And, as a general response to your woefully uninformed posts:
This isn't school. It's not the job of other posters to provide you with basic background information that you should know before addressing a subject.
You have a responsibility to stop posting on subjects about which you clearly don't have the faintest idea. Instead of using big words that you can't even define, I'd advise that you spend some time reading and researching before posting.
