It is a shock. In my family, there was no known infidelity. It was not something that really occurred to me. It seemed like it happened to other people on tv.
Now that I see it, as they say, I cannot unsee it. People pushing boundaries, fishing for reactions. Young women being outrageous, getting attention. Men being disrespectful... You get the idea. It was all there before, I just didn't pay it much attention.
It has been around forever, I suppose. It's good that women have choices, more than ever at least. It's good that people in general do not have to live lives that aren't suited to them, alternative lifestyles are acceptable. So the people who get married should really want to be married, you'd think. But I guess everyone is so focused on short term happiness. They don't see the effect on their kids, their extended family, their old age, their reputation,etc.
