Is Our Society Beyond Hope? « Social Issues »

Sometimes it seems so.

To tell the truth, I'm not sure what else to say about this. It rather depresses me.

I don't know if that's stunning to me because I've never cheated, or if I am pondering which of my friends might. If they are suggesting that "actual numbers" might be 30% to 40% of wives cheat, that certainly seems like atleast a couple women in everyone's social circle.

Being lonely and bored is a sad and sorry reason to cheat, and certainly doesn't excuse the behaviour (frankly, does anything?). What a sad article.

It's important not to take stories like this too seriously. This is the kind of trend story that's sexy and sells magazines, but ultimately, it's about women journalists who live in New York or LA and their friends. It is largely bullshit, and the writers know it, but they want to be published, and most writers write about their friends anyway. The only difference between blogs and social-trend journalists is bloggers are honest about what they're doing.

Is our society beyond hope? Hey, you were the one who wrote, "Yes we have snow bandannas. We have snow bandannas today."

You're right, but the article still depressed me.
