For the first time ever, in the year 2007, France saw more babies born out of wedlock than those born to married parents.
Yesterday the news announced that the gradual trend that has been growing since the sexual revolution in 1968 has for the first time became the majority. In 2007 fifty-five percent of all babies were born to unwed parents. (as opposed to a mere 5% born to unwed parents in 1965.)
There are many moral issues that are changing rapidly in France. And it’s not just a question of one or two deviant people who act differently. This new morality is widely accepted by the population. I’ll hope to write to you about some of these new philosophies in future posts as time allows.
