It’s nonsense to compare the marriages from the days past to marriages today and say that people were better

It’s ridiculous to compare the marriages from the days past to marriages today and conclude that people were in some way better (because there weren’t so many divorces, people didn’t give up on their partners so easily).

I give this example about marriages because it is very often used by people. They show people “Look! 60 years ago human beings weren’t so fucked-up like they are today.” And certain romantic types pick that message up, mindlessly…
