Marriage was invented by humans to control the distribution of power and wealth. The biological imperative has NEVER had even the slightest reliance or dependence on marriage. Offspring are the product of coitus. Marriage is an unrelated factor, correlated to the production of offspring simply by association.
Marriage today is about partnership, interdependence and financial collusion. I'm married 13 yrs (in a couple weeks) raising 2 kids with my wife. We produced these kids in a planned, thought out process, and benefit (or suffer, depending on perspective) appropriately. The point is, we chose it=we own it. Regardless of what you, the govt, or any religion have to say about it.
I will not willingly stand by and deny others the same opportunity to make their own choices because some artificial definition of relationships that is diluted and warped beyond recognition suits an ideology.
Neither will Kluwe. for that he has my respect, despite being a punter and WoW degenerate.
Wow, didnt know "we" which is more than 50% of the country has forced you to, have kids, get married, live in a specific area, no choice of school for your kids, your job, your extra curricular activities for your kids (damnit Johnny! THey said you have to play basketball!) or many other aspects of life. So who you really mad at since we let you do all of those things, no questions asked?
BTW, good job actually planning out your families affairs and future. More people should do that instead of "winging it".
