Marriage does not dominate the American landscape anymore. For the first time in its history, marriage has been brushed aside from the center of our societies. A clearn sign of social breakdown.
The recent US Census reported this changing reality. Of America’s 111 million households, 55.8 million of them—50.2 percent—are marriageless: headed by single moms, single dads, or couples living out of wedlock, including homosexuals. The figures do not include the 30 million single American men and women who live alone.
Anti-marriage trends are all around. Divorce, extra-marital sex, homosexuality, abortion, co-habitation, single parenting etc are on the rise. These issues are what scares many immigrant communities from strong family culture like India, China, Africa, middle east etc. Maybe eastern societies can teach the western world about strong family culture or will we also become part of the western culture trends.
