Recent secular findings on the effects of the contraceptive mentality in our culture show that artificial contraception removes one of the key reasons for getting married - the moral incentive. They also reveal that while many middle and upper class men and women marry because it further serves their economic interest to do so, the poor are more likely to marry only for moral reasons. The result? In our contraceptive culture the poor have even less of an incentive to marry than do the other strata, and so have been hit harder by the negative consequences that resulted from the widespread use of contraceptives. In sum, the end results of the contraceptive revolution were promiscuity, the disintegration of the family, crime, and bitter relations between men and women, the poor among us paying the more dear.
