Abstract

Greater toleration of premarital and extramarital coitus and the increased emphasis on sexual gratification in marriage are not novel trends in American society, but the pace of change today probably is unprecedented. There is intense public discussion of what were once exclusively personal matters. Practices that a generation ago were considered socially deviant, such as cohabitation or homosexuality, are tolerated, if not accepted.
