How Traditional Marriage is Under Attack

How Traditional Marriage is Under Attack July 14, 2020

Is heterosexuality tragic? According to Jane Ward it is. In addition, it causes societal problems for men and women. If that’s true, where does that leave traditional marriage?
Ward, a professor at the University of California-Riverside, wrote a book called “The Tragedy of Heterosexuality.” In it she says heterosexual relationships are inherently bad for people because they highlight inequality.

In a statement to Campus Reform, Ward said she wrote the book because she “loves straight couples” and hopes to better educate them.
Heterosexuality is a “tragic” concept, she says, that perpetuates misogyny, funnels men into supporting toxic masculinity, and breaks up relationships.
Ward says research on heterosexual marital satisfaction shows that straight couples struggle to balance work and family obligations and this leads to frustration and resentment for many straight women.
While marriage can be challenging, the benefits far outweigh the risks. Is traditional marriage under attack?
