The "Free Love" concept that the hippie generation wrought upon the West in the 1960s has caused untold harm to the character development of their offspring and the effects of the degradation of values are felt not only in the liberal communities of today, but sadly they have crept into even the most conservative households.
Good friends of mine, fairly new immigrants like myself, are the parents of a beautiful young girl of 20. They are devastated because their daughter has opted to not only set up house with her boyfriend but is further planning on having a baby out of wedlock. When pressed by her parents to enter into marriage, the girl confessed that her boyfriend is reluctant to take the step and she would rather die than force it upon him. When her parents begged her to leave the man and come back home and that if he loved her he would come to his senses and propose marriage instead of losing her, her answer was: "There are other women just waiting for me to break up with him." What have women come to, to think so little of themselves?
Why has it become fashionable or the done thing to sleep around and to live together out of wedlock? I found the article below to be pretty accurate and I applaud the writer for correctly pinpointing the start of the downward slide in the degradation of women and the lessening of morals, by the women themselves. She rightly lays the blame at the feet of liberal minded individuals who have spread this virus of loose living even in countries which were known to be inherently abundant with the best of family values.
