Acculturated persons are those who find that they are no long treated as the sort of people they thought they were, because the outside world has changed. An economic misfortune or a new technology, or being conquered by another country or political faction can do that to people… Nothing wrecks any kind of love more effectively¬†than the discovery that your previously acceptable behavior has become ridiculous.

-Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake
