(Summer II) First Forum

Today, we read this article in class:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/23/opinion/sunday/coontz-the-disestablishment-of-marriage.html

You can see additional information here:

http://www.theatlantic.com/sexes/archive/2013/06/how-to-live-in-a-world-where-marriage-is-in-decline/276476/

At the end of the article, Coontz writes this: “But it’s not that we’re doing a worse job at marriage than our ancestors did. It’s that we demand different things from marriage than in the past. And marriage demands different things from us.”

Do you agree with Coontz when she says that modern people are not doing worse at marriage? Do you think that we are getting better at marriage? Please explain your ideas with evidence, examples, or other forms of support. Please share a link with us if you find something interesting online.

Can you post an additional question about this article?
