Reprisal, of the "we need each other" and "we need God" theme, because things can happen

Elizabeth Bernstein has an interesting psychological article on p. D1, “Personal Journal”, of the Tuesday, July 16, 2013 Wall Street Journal, “I’m OK, You’re Needy: Why So Many Demand So Much?”

Remember that “I’m OK, You’re OK” during the 1960’s?

Despite the tone of the article, some people would say that our problem is that people don’t accept interdependence when they need to.  (See March 13, 2011 here.)

The same page has a headline piece “The Decline in Male Fertility” by Shirley S. Wang.  Later marriages could be added to the list, leading to the discussion of “demographic winter”.
