Are there any good men out there?

February 23, 2011 | Elizabeth

Recently there was an article released by the Wall Street Journal called Where Have the Good Men Gone?

“Not so long ago, the average American man in his 20s had achieved most of the milestones of adulthood: a high-school diploma, financial independence, marriage and children. Today, most men in their 20s hang out in a novel sort of limbo, a hybrid state of semi-hormonal adolescence and responsible self-reliance.”

Society, the media and marketers are encouraging this lifestyle. The limbo period she talks about is made possible because 20-somethings have the path paved for doing nothing, enjoying life and figuring it all out…without the traditional family plan.

What is up with these men? And, what are women up to? It seems like women may be going the opposite direction as more are attending college, graduate school and climbing up the corporate ladder. Why can’t both of the sexes be successful, happy and well-off?

In 1970, just 16% of Americans ages 25 to 29 had never been married; today that’s true of an astonishing 55% of the age group.

People are waiting longer to get married…couples are waiting longer to have kids….if they have them at all.

What do you think are the implications of this new way of living on society? Do you think the institute of marriage is going to be disregarded someday in the future all together?
