Free love and its ongoing painful results is something that has touched all of us in one way or another. Whether you’re a single parent or someone suffering from the HIV Virus, free love has caused some degree of pain and suffering. Make love not war became the motto of the sixties generation as they protested the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, that free love started an ongoing, and sometimes deadly, war on American society. Here are some of the battles of free love and its ongoing painful results.
Free love has become so casual that it’s commonly called casual sex. Friends might call one another up to arrange a hook up. A hook up is just a time to get together just to have sex. A sexual hook up has nothing to do with a real love. It’s self-gratification without emotional attachment or responsibility. You might also hear this referred to as a booty call.
Unwed parents are struggling to raise their children. In some cases, these are teenage parents that missed out on a normal part of growing up. Either they didn’t get to finish high school or college or they did it later. The lack of education can cause an economic ripple effect of dependency on parents and or the government to help raise the children.
Deadbeat dads that try to escape paying child support put a strain on the legal system and deprive their child of some of life’s material necessities. Whether these deadbeat dads go to jail for non-support or not, the child still suffers. Ironically, your taxes go to support deadbeat fathers in prison for not paying child support.
Some children born out of the free love attitude endure emotional starvation. All children need to know and be loved by both of their parents. But when a single parent raises a love child, the child may experience emotional starvation because both parents aren’t there.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic, or Aids Virus, is another painful result of the free love movement. Millions have been infected and died from HIV. Unprotected sex transmitted the disease through a generation all over the world. Those who could afford high price medical treatment are surviving but the less fortunate are losing their families, their friends, their jobs, and eventually their lives.
Giving a child away for adoption has to be one of the hardest things a young mother could ever do. The thought of not ever seeing the child that they’ve carried for nine months can be heart breaking for some young mothers. Some mothers have experienced deep depression and remorse after doing this.
Abortion is a hot button topic that was escalated by the free love movement. Unprotected free sex has led to record births in the United States. The children born from this were unwanted and in some cases unloved. Free sex is supposed to be about sexual gratification without the responsibility of a child. But when things don’t go according to plan, abortion becomes a deadly option.
You have to ask yourself is free love really free? But someone said that every cloud has a silver lining. In this case, not all children of free love experience painful ongoing results. Sometimes the parents of these love children get married. They try to protect and provide for their children. They love and support them through good times and bad. Fortunately, some children escape free love and its ongoing painful results.
