Bumbling Through Tinder

EPISODE 26

Bumbling Through Tinder

There’s something about long-term love stories that capture our imaginations – regardless of what culture (and Tinder) may want us to believe.

What if the purpose of marriage is to make us better? What if personal relational choice is a bit of a lie? For many, a committed marriage may seem “old school”. What many people expect from relationships is satisfaction and freedom.

So it’s paradoxical then, that once again young people seem to be partnering younger and getting married younger. Commitment, and casual interest: both are alive and well today. There’s something about long-term love stories that capture our imaginations – regardless of what culture (and apps) lead us to believe.

Now there are two tribes: one who wants a life companion, the other stoically going forward alone. Sadly, the truth is, that rates of marriage are now dropping … sharply. Traditional communities still exist though – they marry younger, in greater numbers, and have more children. A minority are holding to older ways.

Will everyone return to this? Will everyone turn to marriage again? Of course not! But it might mean that a correction – however small – might not be far ahead.

What is Delorean Philosophy?

Where are we going as a society? And will you be happy when we get there? Steve McAlpine is here to help you answer those questions.

If a Delorean time machine pulled up in front of your house – Back To The Future style – and someone offered to show you what the future would be like, would you be content with what you found? And if not, what could you do to change it? Thinking this through is what Steve McAlpine calls Delorean Philosophy.

Steve McAlpine is a well-known social commentator, respected theologian and popular author. Each week, he takes a crucial trend or event that’s playing out in society now and asks, “Where is this taking us?”

Rather than just pontificating, Steve then provides practical steps listeners can take if they want to change the future. That’s Delorean Philosophy.
