Miracle of miracles, the secular gang at Psychology Today, the same folks who’ve foisted more harm on society than we could ever calculate, has figured out another age-old truth. In its August 2005 cover story, the journal examines “The Cohabitation Trap: When ‘Just Living Together’ Sabotages Love”. The article is advertised with this blurb: “Living together before marriage seems like a smart way to road test the relationship. But cohabitation may lead you to wed for all the wrong reasons–or turn into a one-way trip to splitsville.”
Generations of mothers could have told us this, of course. And they have.
Nevertheless, we should commend truth wherever we find it, and I surely do. It is long overdue for the “if it feels good do it” crowd to awaken to the real consequences of some of their favored “alternate lifestyles”; not because other people are better, mind you, but because everyone deserves at least a fighting chance. And teaching (and encouraging) successive generations to do things which are wildly self-destructive is just plain wrong.
Al Mohler has a tremendous write-up here. You should definitely take time to read it.
