American culture....championing the new "morality"?

Kate Hudson is ENGAGED!  (Bear with me here, this is NOT a happy little engagement announcement, I assure you)  Ms Hudson was talking to Matt Lauer and holding her baby-swollen belly most of the time as they talked when he noticed the engagement ring on her hand.  She says HERE that they're going to wait and do "the baby thing" first and then maybe they'll talk about wedding dates.   She had no problem with announcing  "the pregnancy thing" but she says it felt silly to announce her engagement and she was just hoping someone would notice.  Matt did.  It was hard not to.  The diamond is nine carats.

I'm hoping a lot of young woman heard her happily putting marriage aside for a while until the baby's born and follow suit, don't you? (Sarcasm).. Of course, 99.99999% of young girls can't afford to do that without going on the dole and then will raise babies intentionally with no dad, but.......geeeee, Kate's HAPPY!

I was watching HGTV a year or so ago when the realtor-hostess was talking to a couple of prospective home buyers and she asked when they'd be moving in....They said they would be moving in together once they were married.   Her response was "oh, really!  Well, THAT's another alternative, isn't it!"   "Another alternative?"


Imagine if some young rocker or actor couple announced they were thrilled to be marrying, waiting to have children because they feel that's the way to go?   Do you think they'd be celebrated for their values?

Our poor teen aged mothers and their poor, poor children...the future generation of America.

geeeeez

Ugh.

Getting pregnant before marriage has become a status symbol. Ugh again.

This behavior is the same repudiation of traditional values exhibited by her mother, Goldie Hawn. Not-so-good parenting but then, they don’t give out academy awards for that, do they?

I was just about to say what Mustang wrote. It's not as if her parents taught her anything about morality, except for disdain of it.

This is what is accepted as normal for the Hollywood crowd. They tell themselves that those who follow traditional mores are idiots.
