The swing against "free love" http://www.globalchange.com/freelove.htm http://www.globalchange.com/freelove.htm Married couples in future can expect adultery to be a normal part of their lives. Commitment should be based on mutual needs rather than romantic love. Those are the views of Professor Carol Smart of Leeds University.

The Real Cost of Divorce http://www.globalchange.com/costxofx.htm http://www.globalchange.com/costxofx.htm Divorce so often means broken promises, wrecked relationships and broken children. However the real answer to human happiness is not fiddling about with new laws, but teaching people how to stay in love. We need to encourage better partner choice, stronger relationships, and early access to expert help, bringing practical compassion not judgement. Ten years ago any politician that talked about "family values" was ridiculed as a right wing extremist. Now everyone is doing it. John Major and Tony Blair both see family life as centre stage, without which society will perish.
