I remember when the reality TV show phenomena was just starting. Everyone wanted to get a look into the lives of the rich and famous – but basically all you got to see was selfishness and greed, which of course satisfied most of the tweens and 20-something viewers. It confirmed for them that it was “all about me” and to hell with the rest of the world. It’s only gotten worse.
I know a young woman who told me that at their wedding about a year ago, while they were walking down the aisle after the marriage ceremony, her new husband was checking text messages. Her concern was that he wasn’t focused on her. In the meantime, it seems she’s never heard of the word “our”; everything is “my”. Perhaps it’s the new way of being a couple.
What it seems to mean is that two spoiled brats are coming together in a relationship that has minimal chance for success. About the only ones who will be enjoying the spoils are the divorce lawyers. Sad commentary.
