Names Lecturer Course 6/10/2017 Assignment 1 From Courtship to Hooking Up Hook-ups and casual dating are replacing courtship in the present generation. People no longer believe in old-fashioned courtship that was embraced by our grandparents in the twentieth century. In my opinion the Internet has been the primary cause for the change in the art of courtship. It is very common for two people of the opposite sex to meet on social media platforms like Facebook Twitter and Instagram and hook-up a week later or even after a day. Without getting to know each other they have physical contact with each other and by the time they are aware of each other’s likes and dislikes one or both of them may not be interested in having a long lasting relationship that would lead to marriages (Pavlou and Goodwin 76-83). Overdependence on communication financial problems and they don’t want to deal with the extra-legal stuff they should go through being married. I believe people who are not married and have been together over ten years are having more extensive relationships than married couples. Without being married you can walk out on the ties anytime without having to deal with lawyers and court fees and fighting over property. They don’t have to divide their things in half when things go south. I believe non- marital relationships are positive and these type of links last longer than a married couple.

From Courting to Hook Up? Assignment 1 Answer question with at least 200 words and respond to classmate with remaining word count. From Courting to the Hook Up!? An on time knock on the door with flowers in hand has been replaced with the 10:55 pm text that asks "You wanna Netfilx and chill?" What has happened to "the path to commitment?" What do you believe has transformed the art of courtship to a mere booty call? support your answers and respond to at least one classmate Classmate- The path of commitment has definitely changed drastically. I think women used to demand respect and mother's were teaching their daughter's right. I think that girls were told to keep their legs closed and pre-marital sex was a big no no. I know from experience I wasn't allowed to have boy phone calls, I could only stay outside for a few hours and if my mother didn't know my friends and their parents there was no hanging out. My mom strongly believed in knowing my every move. I didn't even think about sneaking out the house. I was well aware about the sex talk and everything that came with it such as unprotected sex, teenage pregnancy, and STI's. My mother laid it on thick and I respect her for not exactly being strict, but laying down the law. It was like this is what it is and that's the end of the discussion. I think what has changed in the art of courtship is that women aren't demanding self respect and men are careless about the type of woman they want. Everything now-a-days is a "hook up." I think that this new generation is careless and care free. I think that women are more and more just casually having sex. People really don't believe in sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. It's like it is just something fun to do. I think being young and living life is what we're supposed to do, but I also think just have some respect for yourself and think of consequences and the aftermath. People aren't bonding anymore and getting to know one another we're skipping the small talk and getting straight to hitting the sheets. I am glad that I was raised right and I know the ins and outs of sex. My mother nor my grandmother played. I am going to be the exact same way if I ever have a daughter. Raise em' right while they're young and they'll grow up to make you proud Assignment 2 Answer question with at least 200 words and respond to classmate with remaining word count. In your opinion, is non-marital cohabitation a positive or a negative life experience? Support your answer and comment to at least one classmate Classmate- Non- marital cohabitation is a positive thing. Just because society says that its better being married and legal commitment can take you a long way. You will have legal right to certain things in that individual life. Being in a non-martial relationship is probably one of the best thing a person can be in. Many people do not want to get married because of financial problems and they don’t want to deal with the extra-legal stuff they should go through being married. I believe people who are not married and have been together over ten years are having longer relationship than a married couple. Without being married you can walk out on the relationship anytime without having to deal with lawyers and court fees and fighting over property. They don’t have to divide their things in half when things go south. I believe non- marital relationships are positive and them type of relationships last longer than a married couple.
