New Trends in Marriage Is Subjects Mrs. Mildred Morgan Gives Talk at Meeting at Y. M. C. A. "Modern Trends in the Relationships Between Men and Women" was the topic discussed by Mrs. Mildred Morgan of Iowa City at a meeting of young people Wednesday evening at the Y. M. C. A. "Some modern trends make for better relationships and some do not and need to be thought through again," Mrs. Morgan said. "Young people begin to 'date' at an earlier age than they used to, probably because the whole scheme of life is speeded up and also because society is not organized to allow them to do things in groups. Show of Affection. "There is more pu'ollc show of affection and there Is a more widespread expression of affection." Mrs. Morgan pointed out that the public show of affection does not mean as much to the. persons indulging as it might to the observer. She expressed disapproval of the spread of private expression of affection. airs. Morgan praised the practice of "Dutch dating" and said that while not practicable among those who are not very well acquainted, it :s a valuable thing, both now and in the future when it will make for better marriage. She spoke of the change in attitude toward sex and ol the fact that the "double standard" is disappearing. Sexual relations, outside of marriage are frequent only among the emotionally Immature, she said. Pruiscs Co-Education. Mrs. Morgan praised co-education and discussed the new status of women and its relation to marriage, pointing out that a wife is expected to be more than a good housekeeper and a mother of children. She stressed the idea that mothers should have interests outside their homes. "Divorce is more free, but just as serious as It used to be," she said. "Divorce leaves an emotional scar oil at least one member of the couple. More preparation la needed now for marriage."
