Reader’s Comment: Losers lie behind the bid to erase marriage


In response to Laura Perrins: Our divorce-scarred youth value marital fidelity, Groan wrote:

I can’t help but think that the pressure to end marriage as a serious “contract” comes to a considerable degree from people who have “failed” and seek some sort of justification for their actions. Of course, there are the political ideologues such at Hattie Harman, but I suspect a lot of the apparent disdain for marriage comes from people knowing they have got it wrong and seek solace in arguments that the contract was wrong. As with so much it is all about making the unusual appear usual and bad choices appear inevitable. Guilt is a powerful emotion to harness and assuage.

How sad indeed that we don’t support the hopeful in their aspirations but are led by the disappointed .

I remain optimistic that the sheer weight of evidence will tell in the end.
