What Romance And Marriage Will Look Like In 100 Years To Come? by sherifastro : 02:42 am On 9 Sep 2017
Flash back 100 years - 1917

° Some marriages were still arranged
° Dating was done in groups
° Receiving gifts was very much a part of the romance
° Virginity was more common until the wedding night
° Many women married in their teens, not finishing school
° Women over 25 years old were considered spinsters
° It was romantic to cook a lovely meal with a candle lit table setting (in some countries)
° Kink was considered something very private, as well as the act of s*x
° s*x was often times considered only for procreation
° Marriages lasted many years - divorce not being considered, even in the worse circumstances due to its stigma.

Looking at today - 2017

° Many couples meet via social media or internet dating sites
° Dating is rarely chaperoned
° Gifts are typically only given for special occasions
° Virginity is a rarity - many couples have s*x by the third date, if not sooner
° Many women opt for high school and college graduation prior to considering marriage
° Many women wait until their 30's and 40's to marry the first time - waiting until their careers are established or hoping to find the right one later on when they're more mature - avoiding divorce
° A romantic dinner out is preferred to avoid cleanup
° Kink is freely talked about in order to find a more suitable mate
° s*x is considered a must not an option - even without the need to procreate, thanks to advances in birth control
° It's typical to find a mate who has been married multiple times due to divorce being a ready option for difficult relationships

Flash Forward 100 years - 2117

° Couple paring will be arranged for more equality in intellect
° Dating will be obsolete
° Gifts will be unnecessary
° Virginity will be in demand as to keep couple paring limited
° Advanced education for both parties will be the norm
° All will be pared by age 30
° Kink will again be private and underground
° s*x will be demanded for only procreation, all other options for s*x will be private and underground
° Divorce will be obsolete

Of course, all this is my own personal option. What do you think romance and marriage will be like in 100 years? I'd love to hear your ideas.

What do you think the future holds? Will it look like the romance of today? The romance of the past? or something crazy? :D
