In 1889, The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy outraged public opinion. He revealed the evil sort of relationships between men and women as well as promotion of «little love adventures» in society. He noticed that marriage as a spiritual union of a man and a woman was in danger and that very soon it would not anymore be a guarantee of providing future generations.
It was almost hundred years ago. The human race still continues as it was before. Maybe we have become wiser than our ancestors? Maybe we are already completely healthy?
