In today's Progressive culture, it's ok to walk out on a marriage for greener pastures.

How many times do we see marriages breaking up today merely because one of the spouses says the spark has gone, and they want to find more passion with someone else.

I was watching a typical liberal biased Hollywood movie the other day, and the woman actually made the statement of how brave it is when strong women have the guts to walk out on their loving husbands. She had chosen to walk out on her husband after a couple years of marriage simply because she no longer liked the life she had chosen for herself.

It mattered not that she broke the heart of her husband, and the marriage vows made to each other. In this new self love culture, we are suppose to follow our selfish desires no matter who gets hurt. It's the me me generation!

After supposedly "finding herself" the movie ended with her finding another guy and they sailed off into the sunset. I want all the selfish people in today's culture to ask yourself... would this woman think it brave of her new husband if he decided to leave her on a new quest of finding himself?

The sickest part of Progressives pushing our nation's Christian values under the bus, is how absolutely self consumed people have become when a nation's core values are no longer mentioned.

It used to be considered shameful for a spouse to abandon their family simply to find greener pastures. I'm not talking about abusive situations, or cheating spouses, etc., so spare me.

I'm talking about spouses who walk out on their family simply because they believe the spark has gone. Newsflash, after the honeymoon is over, the spark might go in many marriages. It's up to us to keep the flame burning.

We need to once again shame selfish irresponsible behavior. Political correctness is brainwashing people to believe that shaming immoral irresponsible behavior is too judgmental, and we must all turn a blind eye to this anything goes self love mindset. One night hookups, promiscuous lifestyles, abandoned children, etc. are off limits when it comes to shaming people.

In this new age Progressive world, only irresponsible pet owners are shamed on commercials. Today, the welfare of animals supersede the welfare of our children.

If anyone dares speaks to the moral values not fitting the Left's moral code, he will be judged and ridiculed as a hatemonger, a Zealot, a Fundy, a Bible believing Christian (OH NO!), and be labeled a basket of deplorable's and irredeemable's.

This is why Progressives so hate Christians today. The Christian faith shines a light on their selfish irresponsible lifestyles. In today's culture, we are told that we're perfect just the way we are. No need to improve oneself, or work on a marriage. We don't want insecure people to feel bad about themselves. It's better our children are fatherless, then shame those who abandon them.

So for any person who thinks they have the right to chase after a married person, ask yourself how you would feel about someone who cheated with your spouse.

Sounds like a good formula to use if you want to screw up your kids.

You just clearly expressed the mindset of those on the Left. Hillary and people like yourself say it takes a village to raise a child.

Do you know why Liberals say these types of things? They hate the notion of accountability for one's selfish irresponsible choices made in life, so they expect the village to support them and their children from cradle to grave.

In this way they can continually chase after their personal utopia with no feelings of guilt for all those they hurt.

What's so sick about this no fault type of thinking is that you actually believe case workers make good parents. You actually think a village can create well adjusted children and fix broken hearts.

Gee I wonder why teens join gangs looking for that semblance of a family? I guess the village does a terrible job of making children feel loved.

I agree that Society needs to take care of abandoned children, but we should be looking at the reasons why so many children are abandoned and shaming those responsible. In this way me might actually stem the tide and help future generations of children before they are abandoned.

It takes a father and mother to raise a secure well adjusted child. That is the slogan our nation once held high. The village is made up of cold case workers doing a job and the children know it.

Your answer is more social band-aids, but never addressing the core problem. My answer is breaking the cycle creating the need for never ending social programs.

I have to strongly disagree there--that sounds like a horrifyingly terrible idea.

I'd have to disagree on that as well. While I do believe it takes a village to raise a child in many instances, my kids are my own. Of course I want someone looking out for them, if they misbehave when I'm not present I want that brought to my attention but I and my husband are the only one's who have the right to punish my children should they need it.

Well, also, I am sure you may have significant disagreements with how other people view life, the world, and thus how they want to "raise" your children. Now, to some extent, that is to be expected, as everyone is different and diversity in that regard can be a strength, however, there are most certainly quaky people with dangerously quaky or immoral ideas that I would not want anywhere near my kids, in that sense (if I were a father)--as they are simply a bad influencing, possibly abusive, and generally corrupting.

Your children are your own because of how society currently works. In the ideal society they wouldn't be. That way the minority of abusive and/or neglectful parents could never ever ruin their children's entire childhood.
