On May 4, actress Cameron Diaz, in effect, announced: “Marriage is dead”.
When asked if she thought marriage was a dying institution, Diaz, said, “I do. I think we have to make our own rules. I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based off of old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer.”
I have a few questions about this assessment:
Why would someone who has experienced several failed relationships think that she knows anything about committed relationships?
Why would anyone allow Ms. Diaz to have influence in their life?
More importantly, where do we think that this type of thinking is going to take us?
I would suggest that Cameron is dead wrong. She knows nothing about what suits our world. She can go ahead and make her own rules but the results are going to be really bad.
This Sunday, I am preaching the third part of Indispensable Relationships at Cross Community. I hope you can join us.
