The State of Dating

When we think of dating these days, we think of finding people online or via dating apps, taking them out to the restaurant, and maybe having it lead elsewhere later in the evening. But it wasn't always like that. Surely, there's a few mainstays that have enjoyed enduring popularity: the cinema, blind dates, and of course taking your date out for a meal. However, through the decades dating has changed massively. So, just how different is it from our parents' and grandparents' era?

LoveBeginsAt retells the story of dating from the 1920s until now to show what has changed and how this has influenced the marriage and divorce rates in the US. Just think, there was almost no pre-marital sex in the 20s. Nowadays, this would be an exception based on individual beliefs or habits. In the years following there was a shortage of men due to the war, and the New York Times estimated that nearly 750,000 women were going to remain single. Finally, the 50s welcomed dating to the stage. There was a sex revolution and as a result, casual relationships became accepted by the masses.Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
