In the earlier years of our Earth family was the main focus. Two people fell in love they got married, started a family, the Dad provided for the family, and the Mom took care of the children. Throughout society that is what was acceptable. Family is what life was all about! It’s like the The K-i-s-s-i-n-g Song that we would all sing when we were little!
“(Girl’s name) and (boy’s name) sitting in the tree
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes baby in the baby carriage”
Does that The K-i-s-s-i-n-g Song no longer apply to our society?
Here is an article from the Huffington Post:
“In 2011, the Pew Research Center found that 51 percent of Americans were married, compared to 72 percent in 1960. However, rates of cohabiting couples are rising — according to private research company Demographic Intelligence, less than half a million couples were cohabiting in 1960, compared to 7.5 million in 2010.”
That isn’t the only thing that has changed. Why is it that people are not spending as much time with there children? In today’s society it is more socially acceptable to spend your time at work instead of precious time with your children. Now don’t get me wrong there is certain circumstances where a Mom need’s to work. Whether it be a spouse dies, or financial troubles, but before you go to work ask yourself “Why?” Is it truly more important to hold a full time job then to be at home raising your children. Before you leave your children ask yourself “Why?”
