Novel Comments

15 Oct

This entry is not really about a novel but instead about a movie. Just saw Victoria and Abdul. To misquote- How lonely is the head that wears the crown. The movie’s script and actors did an excellent job of portraying the interesting contrast of being in a position of power yet at the same time being a captive of the traditional role of monarch and also being a tool whom everyone around, except perhaps Abdul, tries to use to gain personal advantage. http://www.finebergpsychotherapy.com

Since 2002, more people approve of living together before marriage, premarital sex, and having children outside marriage, but fewer approve of divorce. (Winerman, L. Sex, marriage and child rearing. Monitor on Psychology, 2016, December, p. 16) http://www.finebergpsychotherapy.com
