Pfffttt! It seems integrity and family values have waned over the years. There have ALWAYS been elements of distrust and dishonesty .. ALWAYS .. since the beginning of time. It just seems those elements are becoming more and more apparent as time goes by.
20 yrs ago -- 40 yrs ago -- 100 yrs ago .. things were different. We have 'evolved' from higher stricter societal rules to no rules at all or 'anything goes' .. and it has depleted any true value we have as a modern society.
Promiscuous sex has increased and openly accepted .. integrity has decreased...all to our demise. Marriages are increasingly being entered into for all the wrong reasons .. thus the correlation to increasing divorce. Family values are nothing like they used to be. The farther we stray, collectively, from honesty, integrity and family values the worse our societal standards become.
As a society, WE are in soooooo much trouble .. as a society .. SOOOO MUCH TROUBLE!
During the 1960's and 70s, relationships were much more meaningful because there was honesty and trust between spouses. In relationships today, there is a lot of unfaithfulness and mistrust, which in most cases leads to divorce.
