Many reasons, mostly cultural. The Euro-American culture does not promote marriage. In fact, it tends to promote the opposite. Youth, sex, freedom, material goods, fun, parties. If that’s not your life, you’re doing something wrong. Everyone else’s life is like that, right? That’s what we’re sold and that’s what we see. You don’t see much in the way of responsibility, the genuine, as opposed to the Hollywood romanticized version of the effects on children from a broken home. Such situations typically portray a now much happier him and her and a comedic interplay between them and the child’s life. Or the kid gets ‘the best of both worlds’.
Man, don’t get me started. There is so much that is Eff’ed up about our culture, our values and the way we’ve come to promote and justify them. I blame the sixties and the welfare state. Poppin’ out kids and doin’ what ever makes you happy. Responsibility, reality and the true repercussions takes a distant back seat.
