I fought the Amendment myself even though I wasn't a church member yet and would not become a member for another twenty-some years.

And why are they working? To get that second car, or the boat or the
bigger house??? I am reminded of what the Lord said in 2 Nephi:

"51  Wherefore, do not spend money for that which is of no worth, nor
your labor for that which cannot satisfy.  Hearken diligently unto me,
and remember the words which I have spoken; and come unto the Holy One
of Israel, and feast upon that which perisheth not, neither can be
corrupted, and let your soul delight in fatness."

It seems to me that the whole purpose is to "be in the world and taste
of the world." The world in changing all right, and the closer we draw
that change to ourselves, the further we are from God. James said:

"...know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?
whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."

Yes, having one paycheck can be a real pain at times, but I would
suppose that no nurturing parent at home is why children grow up
"without natural affection."

I have been reading Wil Durant's "The Age of Faith" which chronicles the
Roman empires demise. One of the items that weighs heavily in Durant's
analysis of the fall of Rome was the assertion of women's rights. Why
did the church fight so diligently against the Equal Rights Amendment if
this was the position we are going to assume??

Help me understand where this is taking us?
