Well Said (You've Got To "Believe", Right?)

"We put little stigma on bad choices, bad judgment, bad luck or bad behaviour. We are tolerant."
-- Libby Purves, commenting on the post-Baby Boom world of divorce, AKA the ultimate underhanded means for female advancement - "nobody need admit or prove fault" - and one of our most salient symbols of The Times.

She adds:
"I suppose the trend had to grow after 1969 and 'no-fault' divorce: many a bitter chap will inform you that it is now possible for a strange man to annex your wife, children, house and half your money even if you never put a foot wrong."
Oh, What A Wonderful World.
