I decide to use my thesis as an investigation of relationships, particularly why they have become so fragile. A successful long lasting relationship has become an increasingly rare commodity in modern Western societies. Our ideas concerning the “family unit” have been radically changed. We live in a society today with an extremely high divorce rate, the numbers are staggering. The U.S., which has become the model for much of the modern world, has itself gone from the most marrying society in the world to the one with the most divorces according to a study by The Council on Families in America1. They also note that the percentage of married adults decreased to 62 percent from 72 percent between 1970 and 1990, and that 50 percent of first marriages are likely to end in divorce. Communication between men and women, or lack their of, has surfaced as a glitch in our society.
