In the world we live in today, it is rare to find people who are truly in love. This may be because in today’s society, there are many relationships that are less than loving relationships. It is sad but true that there are those in the world who have no interest in other human being at all.
Sometimes I wonder if some of these so-called loving relationships are based on dishonesty or on feelings that are too strong. Does this mean that someone can not be truly in love? It sure does not. It just means that someone is not so naive as to fall for the ruse that love really is when they should know better.
The love between two families in the old country was very pure. There were no infatuated feelings or lust. The families simply loved each other and were happy. Sometimes a relationship could last a lifetime, but sometimes there were differences, but they worked through them.
A Swiss Study of Statistics by Martin Claessens shows that there is a much higher rate of divorce in Switzerland than in any of the western European countries. It also shows that in Switzerland, the rate of premarital sex is very low. Therefore it can be concluded that either the rates of premarital sex in other European countries are so low because people here are so sexually satisfied that they have difficulty getting married, or that they are so involved with their lovers that they are afraid of losing them.
In a study made by Channel Health Services, a shocking statistic was revealed. Out of every ten male Swiss, only seventeen percent of them were married in the past five years. Out of every ten female Swiss, ninety percent had no partners during the last five years. In other words, out of every ten Swiss men and women, eighteen percent of them are either completely single or have only one partner. Now this is an extremely disturbing statistic, and something has to be done to prevent this trend from continuing. It shows that the values and beliefs of the majority of Swiss cannot survive without outside involvement, and that marriage in Switzerland is losing its appeal to uk singles.
It is evident that something has to change as the lifestyles of swiss are starting to become completely unsuitable for the average person to live. The rise of the number-one hotspot for singles in Switzerland has to be looked at very carefully. Is the increasing number of single-parent families creating a more hostile environment for Switzerland? Or is it simply the simple fact that the average Netherlands (a nation of great social diversity and great opportunities) have become a nation of conformity, and of low opportunity? Whatever the reason, a better approach would be to look at the situation with a critical eye, rather than emotive one, and to adopt a more pragmatic approach which would see the positive aspects of Switzerland as a unique opportunity for uk singles to enjoy the benefits of living harmoniously together in a country where love and commitment are a timeless tradition.
