The story I am about to tell you may sound implausible, but I assure you it is not only completely true but representative of what is going on in America today with respect to “relationships.”

Ever since the collective attitude turned away from any rules of propriety, modesty, morality, and frankly, good sense, stories like this have become everyday occurrences.

Here goes: A caller to my radio show reports that she has been dating and having sexual relations with a man who is shacking up with another woman. In her early 40s, she doesn’t see that she is doing anything wrong by being with another woman’s man because, after all, they are not married. So much for feminist sisterhood!

Not only does she not see this as wrong or foolish, but she has expectations of how he is supposed to treat her. Excuse me? Expectations? Based on what? An occasional roll in the hay?

When I asked her how she possibly could expect anything other than an occasional “booty call,” she replied that he owes her because she is sexually available to him. “I love him,” she said. I sarcastically responded with, “Certainly you love him. He has all the qualities of a decent, loving, faithful man.” And then I laughed.

As though to corroborate my assessment of this fellow as less than noble, she continued, “And it turns out that there are two other women involved.” I couldn’t help but laugh again. But this is not a laughing matter.

The motivation behind everything from marital commitments to the double standard was to elevate and protect the sanctity of a woman’s body, soul, psyche, and value. Many women have voluntarily surrendered this good stuff so they can be unpaid prostitutes.

The emotional needs of women have not changed. Women want to be wanted, loved, protected, provided for, and cherished. There has been no DNA mutation that has unraveled this hard wiring of a woman’s psychological needs. But today, there are women who have serious emotional problems from early family experiences who may find it uncomfortable to form a healthy relationship with a really substantial man.

Many of them are products of women like my caller who don’t bother to build a sturdy nest before making babies. That chaos leads to fears, unfamiliarity, and cynicism about love and commitment. I am not laughing any more.
