If you haven’t noticed, marriage rates have been falling, and divorce rates have been rising.
The sacred institution of marriage is under attack, and it has been for a long time.
Chad Prather hints that this — as you likely know — has a lot to do with “the leftist movement resplendent in its eternal state of metamorphosis towards the paradoxically utopian hellscape”
He continues that it “gnaws like the world’s most determined termite at the foundations of everything which we hold sacred and necessary to cohere as a forward moving society; and in its wake, we tread upon the smoldering and broken institutions that once made us great and, God willing, will one day truly make us great again.”
Beautifully said, but tragic that it has to be.
According to Prather, marriage rates have plummeted by 60% in America since 1970, which he says we’ve sadly come to accept as “fact.”
He says that despite the fact that we believe this to now be normal, it “should shock us and that to our very cores, because it is not merely an American thing to do, getting married, it’s a human thing to do.”
He continues, saying that for as long as our human society has existed, “marrying and rearing children have not only been the dominant social convention” but the “glue that held the social fabric together and allowed us to grow both as a species” and “as soul-bearing individuals.”
But he adds a bit of a silver lining, mentioning that conservative marriages tend to be happier.
Now, that makes sense just on the basis the left seems to be inherently miserable — but really, why is it?
He explains that “conservative marriages have either God or something like God at their center. They have a value system.”
Those on the left don’t have the same value system. Rather, they have “nothing but the glorious utopia that surely lies just beyond that next mountain we must cross as a society and they never seem to get there. There lies the hopelessness and chaos.”
But this desolate, utopian, leftist idealism can be fought — and can be fixed.
Prather says, “It’s a hard conversation to have,” but “we need to refresh ourselves on the values of society.”
Because “even though we are failed, fractured, scarred individuals, we can come back together and hold on to those things.”
