It’s practically a law: every few months, a major media outlet has to publish an anxious piece about “Women Today”.
Women today are abandoning marriage; they’re dying to get married. Women today can’t balance work and family; they aren’t having enough babies. Women today are doing better than men; women today can’t have it all. The underlying theme is always the same: women today are miserable.
The latest play on this theme comes from the style section of the New York Times (the worst offender in the genre, except perhaps the Atlantic and the Daily Mail). The Times article asks if we are currently seeing “The End of Courtship?” (the implied answer, of course, is a resounding “yes”). Unfortunately, the Times is several decades late in discovering the demise of courtship.
