Legislating on Virtual and Physical Infidelity

Surprisingly, many have woken up to the reality that Americans are succumbing to either physical or virtual infidelity. A 2002 survey taken by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that internet pornography was a significant factor in 56% of divorce cases the prior year. In 2012, the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy reported that 41% of marriages reported that one or both spouses admitted to infidelity (either physical or emotional).

Why is this happening? One reason is the Sexual Revolution itself. The simple fact is that many people believe in sex without consequences. This ideological belief has led to the second reason why such activity is taking place—many states have made divorce easier to attain and repealed laws that strongly discouraged extramarital affairs.

The question remains, what can society do in the face of unbridled pornography and no-fault divorce laws?  (more...)

Could we thin the ranks of Liberals?

Yep, time for a cull
