I sometimes get the feeling that focusing on teaching girls how capable they are at working into reality whatever their dreams happen to be has also placed on them a burden into their young adulthood.
It’s a notion that somehow if an American girl doesn’t meet her full potential in womanhood she has let down her mother, maybe her grandmother, and possibly all women.
But the having and growing of children, gardens, libraries, and art collections seem to demand something more permanent than romantic love allows.
And now I, too, am beginning to wonder whether the European way isn't more pragmatic, more intelligent, finally more durable.
The message from older generations of feminists isn’t “we strove to break the boundaries so you can be what you want to be” it’s “we strove to break the boundaries so you be what you want to be.”I want to again reiterate that this needed to happen; the social inequality that existed between sexes left to us by the 19th century needed to change.
It’s I think prudent to note that at the same as this is liberating to women, it could also be obligating.
The roar of outrage that greeted Shere Hite's assertion that 70 percent of American wives married more than five years are unfaithful just goes to show how against American values this notion of "open" marriage is: Americans idealistically imagine their marriages closed." The answer to this question is always yes, says my friend who lives in Paris."But, of course," he goes on, over a scrumptious lunch of stuffed roast lamb with wild mushrooms at Maxim's, "Europeans know better than ever to ask that question.Being thoroughly American (despite all the time I spend in Europe), my life has been a tribute to the American way of serial monogamy: passionate exclusive attachments, most of which have lasted about seven years.I am a bonder, a marrier, who marries for love against all reason and who stays as long as love lasts.
I’m not saying American culture should roll back the clock, I’m saying that we should be aware that the previous waves of feminism came to give more freedom, not less of it. I think it would be ridiculous for anyone to place their value and identity entirely around a partner, whether that’s a man with a woman, or a woman with a man.
