"For the next great heresy in going to be simply an attack on morality; and especially on sexual morality. And it is coming, not from a few Socialists surviving from the Fabian Society, but from the living exultant energy of the rich resolved to enjoy themselves at last, with neither Popery nor Puritanism nor Socialism to hold them back … The madness of tomorrow is not in Moscow, but much more in Manhattan.” - G. K. Chesterton, 1926

Love without an unqualified commitment betrays the very essence of love. He who refuses to commit himself (or who breaks a commitment in order to start another relationship) fools himself. He confuses the excitement of novelty with authentic happiness.

Such affective defeatism - so typical of our age - is a symptom of a severe emotional immaturity which weakens the very foundations of our society.
— Alice von Hildebrand in her Introduction to Dietrich von Hildebrand’s Marriage: The Mystery of Faithful Love
