Date of Defense
Along with many other psychologists and sociologists, I am alarmed by the rapid increase in divorce rates. Toffler, in Future Shock, suggests one result of increasing technology might be the break up of the basic family unit. Gone are the days of the average couple meeting and settling down in the same town they have always lived in, surrounded by a secure and stable milieu. No longer are most women satisfied to take on the role of housewife, accepting their main responsibility as cleaning, cooking, and clothing their families. A marriage in our increasingly changing society is made up of two people who are going to learn and grow in different directions. Trying to force growth at the same rate and direction is disastrous. In order to have a fully actualized marriage the couple must learn to communicate their needs, desires, expectations, and growth to one another. Towards this goal the CAC* approach is valuable.
