Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    Professor of Politics and The Richard L. Bready Chair for Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good at Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Women Hedging Their Relational Bets via a Career

Posted by Dale Kuehne on June 6, 2012

I recently spoke with several women in their 20’s who said that they needed to get a career to hedge their bets against either a bad marriage or no marriage. It seems they are not alone. See the following from the Barna Group.

Before you hedge those bets you placed against me
Be renascent of fortunes they foretell
Your verbal defecation I cant wash away despite myself,
your vanity it seems has served you well

Your so quick to choose the path walked by the righteous
So you can go and nest among the weak
The innocent observers will refuse to find the lie within
Renew the disappointment of the meak

No Jesus Christ by Seether from Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces (2007)
