Co-Productive Family Life: Blending the Old and the Newby Richard Kordesh on 06/28/14
How desperately our society needs to evolve a new form of loving, productive family life! How urgently our young people need a vision of family life that is dignified and feasible practically. Yet again, I have talked with another young friend about whom I care very much, with her worrying over whether it will even be feasible for her and her male partner to come together in marriage. The traction for marriage has become very weak, very thin, almost to where it's not considered seriously by many adults. I believe that traction has eroded because many young folks barely know what it's like to enjoy enough control of one's immediate life to consider building a family and a decent family habitat. Even phrasing the issue that way sounds out-of-reach, outmoded, or outside their relevant range of choices.
