I don't exactly blame promiscuity directly for society going to hell. What I blame is the lack of respect for Marriage. People just treat it as a temp. arrangement that they can undo or whatever whenever they want. No one seems to be in it for life anymore. Then what's the point of a vow if it's meaningless? Don't make them if you're going to break them.

As for promiscuity...I've never had much respect for people that sleep around a lot (including some of my friends) but I guess that's more because of like...eww, how can people do that with just random people and tons of people? Shouldn't it *mean* something?

I do think they go together in a way, but it is the general lack of respect for marriage that is the bigger problem of the two, definitely. I guess those of us in Gen X were the first real "broken home" generation, where it became just as common to have divorced parents as not, and I think it's trickled down ever since. (Both D and I are children of divorce, and that's made us more determined to get it right. Apparently we're a rarity.)
