According to Reuters, a Polish man went to a brothel and discovered his wife was one of the fleshy delights on offer. He thought she was working in a shop in another town as she'd told him. The couple are now divorcing. How sad.
Though some may find this little story amusing, it does highlight the difficulties of human relationships in 2008: the uneasy truce that exists between men and women, the lustful, deceitful nature of humans generally, and the uncertainties of life. Nothing serious!
Of course, human relationships are in a state of flux. No one really knows what's right anymore. Or cares. Rafferty's Rules seem to apply. The moralities that once applied (at least in theory) have been thrown out the door. Now it seems that the modus operandi is: 'If you think you can get away with it, go for it!'
Who knows, brothels may soon offer both men and women to their customers. Or children. Or animals. Perhaps some already do given that human depravity appears to be infinite!
I wonder what the longterm implications of this are for human society. Can you throw away all the conventions, things like fidelity, loyalty, honesty, decency, etc. and expect society to remain stable, to provide a protective, supportive place for children to grow up in?
How many hurt and bewildered children are out there, I wonder, innocent victims of their 'We Want It All' parent or parents?
They will carry the scars forever. And pass them on.
