Humanae Vitae hits the nail on the head once again...

Found this following article saying that men are afraid of committment and so are not getting married. Here is an excerpt:

Researchers say one of the biggest reasons that men are delaying marriage is that more and more couples are choosing to live together before marriage. As a result, sex -- traditionally one of the main reasons for men to marry -- is relatively easily available, they say.

"In a sense, with cohabitation he gets a quasi-wife without having to commit," said David Popenoe, co-director of the National Marriage Project at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

An excerpt from Section 17 of Pope Paul VI's encyclical Humanae Vitae states the following:

Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection.

Whoever doesn't think Pope Paul VI was a prophet needs to examine those two things very very closely.
