Why do Americans generally have very bad moral ethics ? Do they really believe sex before marriage is okay ?

It seems they are so much into drinking and smoking pot putting tattoos living with their boyfriends or girlfriends . Ive heard they actually do have sex before marriage . Why do they do this ?

    Not all of us do, of course, but those of us who do it, do it because they feel like it and they think that God will save them in their sins. Or they're irreligious.

    Morality is relative to the standards of the social order. Sex without marriage is not immoral, depending upon country or religion. And, it's most of civilization, not just USA.

    And there was me thinking it was supposed to be a land of the free where you can be what you want to be.

    Is that not the case?

    Murikkkans are greedy liars that refuse to think properly. Just look at who they elected to represent them.

    I think because they are very individualistic. People are encouraged to make their own decisions and live with the consequences. 

    Personally I have no issue with sex before marriage as long as there's protection, but the smoking, drinking and tattoos bother me.

    Because we can.  Sex before marriage is ok with me as long as protection from unwanted pregnancy is taken.  

    If you want to live in a authoritarian theocracy there are plenty of choices.
