There’s more to marriage than the rut, folks. #1 is the children.
In the most successful cultures in the world, marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
“What makes the number two unique or necessary? Why not marry yourself, as some women have recently done? Why not throuples? There are several examples of this in the last few years. Why not three women and two men? We see this already in polygamous relationships. Why not?”
There are no happy, peaceful, high functioning polygamous societies in the world!
If the standard becomes that marriage can be defined in whichever way a people or culture desire, then monogamous marriage is redefinable, period.
The culture will then destabilize, becoming more violent and more dysfunctional.
Children will not be exceptionalist fathered!
Creating the conditions for these types of new marriage configurations will smash the standard of one-man-one-woman marriage.
