Hearth tipped me off to this article which was tinged with alarm over the fact that young Americans have decided that families fare better when one parent is dedicated to the care of home, hearth, and offspring. Why is this generation of young adults so willing to turn back the decades of gains that have been made in pursuit of “gender equality”?
At our core, people sense what makes sense and what doesn’t. The utter unhappiness and relational chaos that accompanies our proliferation of choices surrounding the family dynamic isn’t lost on young people. They have more access to competing perspectives and information than any of us ever had. They can also see that more often than not, traditionally structured families* seem happier overall.
Funny how that works.
Here is another excellent piece I read, written for single women. It’s written by the Botkin sisters, and is a very encouraging perspective on how to approach life as a Christian woman, not solely as a maiden-in-waiting. They really do a great job of dismantling a lot of Neo Trad nonsense here.
