She explains that we can't fool Mother Nature and if we try to, we will end up with all sorts of problems (445).
She explains that we can't fool Mother Nature and if we try to, we will end up with all sorts of problems (445).If we live solely for ourselves and not be part of a traditional family unit, then again problems are created (449).Plus, she does not talk to a diverse audience and therefore I cannot recommend her essay.
When looking at the common cold and what that small problem does to us, we can then reason that if our lifestyle is not in line with the natural order, havoc will also follow.
This brings up the questions of whether people living singly are living out of the natural order.
If we try to change the natural order, problems will develop (445-446).
Many people would agree with this reasoning because there is a vast amount of scientific evidence to support the fact that when one small component of creation is missing or out of sync, this causes a chain reaction of other problems.
She doesn't want marriage to become a casual choice, like deciding what to wear for the day (445), but rather the most important choice we can make.
Most people would agree that marriage is a very important choice to make.
Decter notes that problems also follow people if they choose to live life concentrating on "Self" (446).
Most people would agree that concentrating solely on oneself is selfish and not a desirable attribute, and that could cause problems, as no one enjoys the company of a self-centered person.
Her tone is rather light but serious at first, but as the essay comes to an end, her tone changes to be cutting as she describes men and women waking up to becoming "real" husbands and wives (449).
Her view is very narrow at this point and I imagine that if there had been single people in her audience, they would have been offended.
