15 Life Situations That Used to Be Normal and Now Look Wild

3 years ago

For many years, our parents and grandparents have lived by a set of rules that were considered normal. “Get married when you’re 20 years old,” “That’s not for men,” “Boys don’t cry” — how many times have we heard something like this? But life goes on, the times are changing, and now we see many things from a different angle.

We at Bright Side were thinking about how many things have changed in the past 20-30 years. And we decided to show the difference between what it used to be like before and what it’s like today. It turned out that our habits and values have changed quite a bit, and the things that used to be normal are really wild today.
