Commitment, anyone?

Posted By on July 2, 2010

From the folks at Mercatornet:

Further to an earlier post on delayed adulthood, USA Today recently ran a report headed “Dating for a decade?” on how young adults put off the commitment of marriage for years, even though they have “paired off” and typically live together. Nobody seems very upset about it….. Fear of commitment — and of divorce — plays a part, as also romantic ideas about finding the perfect match, a soul-mate. Dating is open-ended, options are kept open.

Read the rest here. (Not for young readers.) It’s time to start connecting dots, folks. Prolonged adolescence, early sex-ed, the hook-up culture, “no-fault” divorce, and delayed childbearing all play into this trend. What must we do differently to prepare our children for strong, lifelong marriages?
