In the past tradition seemed to give us some degree of certainty. We knew when and who to marry and why; because everyone else was doing the same. Tradition meant safety in numbers and the majority ruled. Today, more than ever before, traditional norms are fading in importance but at the cost of losing the certainty that they brought.
Today, all we seem to have is more uncertainty. When should we marry or should we marry at all? Or if we are married should we stay together? And who should do the initiating now days, anyway? Who knows! Maybe the tradition of today is to embrace uncertainty and not try to dress it up as false or so-called certainty. Maybe uncertainty is the new black. At least the Tradition of Uncertainty and the certainty it brings us, is far more real than previous traditions and “certainty”.
But then again I could be wrong!
