“ Now young people face a social frontier of their own. They hit puberty around 13 and many don’t marry until they’re past 30. That’s two decades of coupling, uncoupling, hooking up, relationships and shopping around. This period isn’t a transition anymore. It’s a sprawling life stage, and nobody knows the rules. Once young people came a-calling as part of a courtship. Then they had dating and going steady. But the rules of courtship have dissolved (emphasis MRW). They’ve been replaced by ambiguity and uncertainty. Cell phones, Facebook and text messages give people access to hundreds of ‘friends.’ That only increases the fluidity, drama and anxiety.” David Brooks, New York Times 2007
