Unmarried women having babies, sex between unmarried men and women, and gay and lesbian relationships also saw high percentages of moral acceptability, at 67, 63 and 59 percent, respectively -- all up from a decade ago.

I DO NOT find ANY of these acts acceptable.

What a bizarre poll, so bizarre it seems meaningless. It should focus on one thing, like sexual morality. But introduce cloning? Why not ask what people think about climate change while they're at it? Or The Jersey Housewives? Or Daft Punk?

We are definitely on the downhill slope. Sad testimony for mankind.

There was another poll not to long ago that teenage pregnancy was down quite a few percentages. The reason they gave was that most teenagers have realized the damage to their lives by being unmarried young parents. The teenagers answer to this is to be more active in oral sex thus nobody gets pregnant from it. Silly polls.

Why? Marriage is a society norm not really a natural one. What people do in their bedrooms is their own business.

Amazing that a poll analysis uses the word "hypocrisy" for a single topic (infidelity) when the entire poll is rife with hypocrisy regarding every topic on their list. It's like the entire Gallop poll is saying that people are intolerant of hypocrisy, yet are more than willing to be hypocritical themselves. So much for "rather be left than lied to".

Republican/Tea Party/Christian HEADS ARE EXPLODING!!! And I love it!!!

Funny, Republicans tend to follow the bible. They get called "bible thumpers" all the time. Dems on the other hand... Seem to have lost their moral compasses a while ago, and point their fingers at republicans.

I don' t know where you got your information. Morals and the decline of morals have nothing to do with poltics. (republicans or democrates or anyone else). Human beings have always even in the bible had problems when it came to morals. Today you cannot find anyone in any type of religion who claims to follow the bible ,koran, torah or any other book who is clean in their faith. I have been on this earth 58 years and never met a christian. All have something in their life they are doing or have done something God would not aprove of. How many people in jail belieave in god. If we all had the same morals ( I mean all of us) we would not have all the problems of hate, more than one religion,thinking one race is better, divorce ( the bible say God does not like divorce unless infidelity, Jesus mention this when the scribes and pharises asked him why Moses allow divorce. Jesus"s answer that because of your hard heartness Moses allow the divorce but if a man marry a woman who is divorce by her husband he has commited adultry with her. So tell me are we following Jesus.

By "deteriorating society" you really mean the end of the White Christian Male's domination of America & the beginning of a new era where equality for all has become a much stronger entity than Biblical inspired hatred of other groups.

The #1 factor in a child growing up in poverty is a unwed mother, No respect for women who do that to their children.
03:49 AM on 05/30/2013
In my opinion, the #1 factor in a child growing up in poverty with an unwedded mother is the sperm donor who does not take any or limited forced court ordered responsibility for the life he participated in creating. I have no respect for the male species that would do that to his offspring.

How do you feel about the unwed fathers who helped produce those children living in poverty? For every child in this country there is a father. It is both parents responsibility to financially support a child. If, for some reason a child is living in poverty due to poor choices by parents, both parents bare responsibility.

I'm fine with polygamy as long as everyone is okay with it. I find that cheating is really wrong and it hurts your partner. Unwed mothers doesn't bother me, but I hope they get support from the father... Unless they don't want support or used sperm donations. Homosexuals don't bother me because that's who they love and they're born that way. You don't choose to be gay because you are born gay. Divorce doesn't bother me because my parents got divorced and it was the best thing. I was only 5 and it never bothered me because I learned that my father was abusive and mother is a wonderful women. Wait... What's wrong with human cloning? Oh, and standards aren't lowered these days because people are finally opening their minds and eyes. We are finally accepting real lives that were hidden in the past. You are just ignorant because you were raised the wrong way. Still, cheating is really wrong. If I don't want to be hurt then I shouldn't hurt my partner. My bf told me not to talk to my ex and I don't talk to him because I love my bf. It's not like I want to because I hate my ex and I moved on with my life.

Common reactions to "infidelity" often involve wallowing in unchecked emotionalism, loud voices, and sometimes violence. Very...primate. Often there is a perceived need to "punish" in some way, whether through physical assault or through punitive legal and financial measures.
Best to remain single.

I'm no supporter of polygamy, it's gross to me, but it's silly for westerners to criticize cultures that practice it. They family usually stays together, but with serial monogamy, there's a lot of cheating due to (one of the spouse or both, most often the husband) wanting sexual variety, then they divorce and remarry.

Which is worse on the cheating scale - having sex with your partner while fanaticizing it is someone else - or have sex with someone else and fanaticizing it is your partner?

Either one is morally repugnant.

Somehow I doubt that people who are cheating on their partners are fantasizing about their partners while doing it.

I can understand your reasoning. But you cannot deny that you reap what you sow. Nothing changes , it just have a new name, come out in the opening now mre than 20 or 30 years ago but not change. For every action there is an action, good or bad. I feel it has nothing to do with changes because people have beem living together as man and wife for decades. ( you usually did not know until someone dies) having babies without being married. Gay people have always been around us and always will. We have allow ourselves to bring everything out in the open. Nothing change, people are still doing things they have done since Jesus walk this earth. (If you belieave in Jesus)

First you destroy the nucleus family with easy divorce, then you normalize broken homes, then you redefine marriage to what ever you want it without morality. Presto, chanjo, you have normalized trash.

I believe that society has had it all wrong, that homosexuality isn't immoral. Why do you think it is? What is so wrong with two people of the same gender uniting when humanity, as a whole, is reproducing at a rate that the earth cannot continue to support?

They asked the wrong question. How many had extramarital relationships while at the same time thinking it is wrong. The results above don't necessarily mean 91 percent fidelity.

They can't mean that, since over 50% of married people have affairs. So half of that 91% have had an affair. but think it's morally wrong. Do tell!
