Relationship Expert Q&A's
Name: anon

Question: Is commitment-phobia more common now than it was, say 30-50 years ago? Do you think the sexual revolution played a part in creating an environment that fosters this problem? Or, has it always been around at this level, but was just expressed from within a marriage, because remaining single was less acceptable in society back then? It just seems so rampant now that I can't help but wonder how our current society is playing into it (instant gratification, internet dating, etc)
Just Dodged another CP bullet and reading this board has been helpful! Also, I don't think Anne Younger is in Burbank anymore--can't find her.
Thank You!

I would look in Beverly Hills. She used to have a second office there.

I don't think commitmentphobia is any different today but I think the expression is different. It is easier to run. That's a basic fact. Before, much more of the drama was played out behind the closed doors of a painful marriage.
I will say this: it's not getting better out there.
