Neither will women.
Commitment is gone from our society, along with character.
It is true in business as well as relationships.
Commitment is an outgrowth of principles.
Character is an outgrowth of principles.
Real love is an outgrowth of principles.
Where there are no principles, there cannot be character, real love, or commitment.
Principles have been replaced by emotion.
No longer are there principles to overrule emotion.
Business and personal relationships continue as long as the parties feel good about it.
Contracts and commitments are transgressed merely because someone’s feelings got hurt.
That is why our courts are clogged with lawsuits, and litigants behave like children before frustrated judges.
Women complain that men will not commit...
... but women initiate far more divorces than men do.
Those who complain about commitment are themselves unwilling to commit.
“Until death do you part” is itself dead.
Marriage has degenerated into a trivial tax advantage…
… with the risk of great financial loss.
So why bother with it?
The new paradigm is “you give me pleasure, and I’ll give you pleasure.”
You keep your place, and I’ll keep mine.
You live your life, and I’ll live mine.
Welcome to the "new age".
