2Do We Live in a Throwaway Society? Our society today has become a society that is more focused on our dreams and  wants rather than what we have. This obsession with our wants and desires in the  moment has led us to be a throwaway society.  There are a number of areas that we  can examine that prove this point.  They are in our marriages, our belongings, and the  debts that we occur. Divorce in the United States is growing at an alarming rate. We no  longer see a marriage relationship as a life-long commitment but instead it could almost  be considered arrangements.  One of the most glaring examples our in society is our extremely high divorce  rate.  In the United States a study was completed in 2010 that showed that 4 in every  1,000 marriages ended in divorce for the previous year.  From the time we are barely  able to walk we are fed the wrong information about love, marriage, and romantic  relationships should be.  This is done through the media and even the relationships our  parents set as examples.  In TV and movies we are bombarded with unrealistic  expectations and examples of what marriage relationships should be.  They show  relationships that set unrealistic levels of romance, passionate feelings, and over the top gifts.  Since this is what we are exposed to this is what we think a marriage should be.   Once these things start to change we believe our marriage is lost and run to get a  divorce. The fact that almost half of marriages end in divorce, means that kids are  growing up thinking that a marriage is something that can be thrown away if things get  too difficult because a lot of these children have witnessed their parent’s divorce.   Further research has been done on this trend and has identified some key differences in

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
