Well Stated

Mark Shea:

It Turns out God was Right

...and the Mandarins of sexual libertinism were wrong. Wouldn't you know it? When men and women just move in together because it "sounds fun" this results in indistinct, vague relationiships in which the woman wishes the guy would commit and the guy sort of hangs around, not buying the cow because the milk is free and simultaneously lusting after other women/feeling guilty and then wishing he could escape the relationship in which he sort of participates. The arrival of children acts, not as a blessing, but as an intrusion and a complicating factor. Who could possibly have foreseen this?

I'd add that the kids who result tend to *stay* kids for a very, very long time.

I was dating one. Took me AGES to figure out that I was mothering him, not attracted to him.
