The birth control pill arrived on the market in 1960.
Within two years, 1.2 million American women were “on the pill.” By 1964, it was the most popular contraceptive in the country.
#6 In 1960, only lived with a mother who had never been married! Broken homes, broken families and broken marriages, those are terms straight out of the 1980s.
By 2012, 22 out of every 100 kids lived with a single mom, and only half of those moms had ever been married. If you aren't living in with a mommy and daddy who are married then society would like you to believe something is wrong with you.
And long before the days of shows like "The Bachelor," 1965 brought us "The Dating Game," the forerunner in TV dating shows for singles.
You can’t wait to begin your life with your beau, but first, you need to prove to your parents that you’re ready to marry—by being bundled up in a sack and put to bed.Step two: watch in horror as your mother ties you up from feet to waist in a heavy sack.Step three: get into your parents’ bed fully clothed next to your date under the watchful eyes of your parents, who place a thick wooden board between you and tuck you in for the night.#4 This is what life was like for women in their early 30s in 1960: nearly 80 percent of them did lived in a family in which the parents were married, the dad worked, and the mom stayed home. But seeing the rise of broken families with children growing up with one parent as a sign of progress isn't a logical conclusion.By 2012, only 22 out of every 100 American kids lived such "married male-breadwinner" families. Would a child choose to have only one loving parent when that child could have two?
Now, when I talk about people who are single at heart (who live their best and most authentic lives as single people), or when individual single people say that they like living single, we get responses like "oh, you just haven't met the right person yet," or, when they are being a bit more presumptuous, "deep down inside, you don't really mean that." But just before 1960, a national survey found that 80 percent of Americans thought that people who wanted to be single were "immoral," "neurotic," or "sick." #2 Maybe those scathing attitudes had something to do with how few single people there were back then.
