Are Reality Shows Ruining Relationships?

All these shows have one thing in common: constantly maxing out the drama to get the highest ratings. But this comes at a price: whether it's getting the latest Gucci shoes or the handsome pilot with a heart of gold, these shows constantly show people behaving at their worst. They usually ensure that there's plenty of booze to loosen tongues, and plenty of drama—real or artificial—to keep the show moving.

What a bad boring rap monogamy has in our sex-saturated society. We live in a society that values multiple sex partners and ignores the richness of monogamous marital sex. This isn't to say married sex is perfect. I used to hate married sex. When I was married for the first time long ago, sex was a bit of an issue. And before that I dide the casual sex thing, only to discover what many others discover (but rarely admit) – sex outside the covenant of marriage leaves in its path a battlefield of emotional, physical and spiritual wreckage.
