I read CNN’s opinion piece by William Bennett called “Why Men Are in Trouble” and it made me think hard about men. In the article, Bennett outlines why he thinks men today are not showing strong signs of grasping what being a man is about.
It’s interesting that Bennett addresses a lack of maturity that he thinks is a big part of the problem. To wit:
“Just ask young women about men today. You will find them talking about prolonged adolescence and men who refuse to grow up. I’ve heard too many young women asking, “Where are the decent single men?” There is a maturity deficit among men out there, and men are falling behind.”
If men are in trouble, what does this mean for the future of our dating relationships?
Do you agree that men are not stepping up to the plate in their transition from boys to men?
Another thing that stood out in the article is the fact that Bennett sited a “decline in virtues” that men are showing less success/interest in work, marriage, and religion. Would you agree?
Do you think men are in trouble?
