Dear Ms. Fields: If you are going to write professionally, please use proper grammar: "which described how him and her got acquainted." This should read, "which described how he and she got acquainted."
Your identification of the loss of intimacy (and learning the coping skills required to create a long-term relationship) is of great concern. It's too easy to "hook-up." It's too easy to marry and quickly divorce. We need some of the old (and provably workable) mores to infiltrate into this amoral mush of sex.
Thanks for the article.
