As I get older & see more and more changes (detrimental) to our society my long standing response to my spouse & close friends as to why crime, divorce increases, single parenting, and many other societal downtrends has been:
The Amendment to give women the right to vote and women working for men during WWII started this society's downslide.
It used to be my big joke when younger but sadly as the years pass by, I may be starting to think and believe that it really isn't a joke and more the truth.

Any road will take you there" - George Harrison
