@scaryfeetscaryfeet, and wuv, twuu wuv.
@scaryfeetscaryfeet, that's my favorite comment I laughed
@ChaoticStarWhale, you keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
@scaryfeetscaryfeet, just skip to the end!
Marriage out of love was created in the industrial revolution, as a result of new free time and common wealth. I wrote my thesis on this.
@sheldon c, I am actually interested in reading your thesis. Could you tell me the college library it is at and the title please?
Why does this picture make so much sense
I mean. He's not entirely wrong, it did start as a religious union and not something that came out of feelings for one another ( although of course that did help). Key point was the large number of arranged unions in the past.
Technically it's not. Legally, all marriage is, is the right to pay taxes together and jointly claim dependents, such as kids. The Government cares noting of Romance or Attraction, and to be honest, I agree. They -should- keep their nose out of it.
@Gestalt BumWizard, yes! let marriage be a cultural and religious ceremony. Take the government out of marriage and just let them be in charge of "civil unions" or whatever for tax and other purposes. Everyone will get what they want.
@Gestalt BumWizard, the gov sure does like to make sure you married for romance and "love" when it comes to marrying foreigners though... If they feel it wasn't for love someone can get the ole de-por-tation boot. (I'm for love and romance and keeping them out of my biz FYI)
@Channing Taintum , Now in that case I'm sure its less about love and more about the IRS getting pissed about abusing a tax loophole to get people to skip the immigration process. However that wouldn't be an issue if the Immigration Process wasn't completely garbage to begin with.
All you need is a quick background check, and a Crash Course on English and American History.
It should take only 3-4 months, not 3-4 years. But that's another issue.
Marriage is about wealth and status I mean come on, get with the times it's the 12th century for Christ's sake!
@stigmaoftherose, I had no idea we were still in the times where the black plague and smallpox were still an issue.

That's right marriage is never complete without shark week
Exactly!.... It needs to have at least three to keep it interesting
@mercator mortis, mr bean face
@mercator mortis, now that's what I'm talkin about!
He's right. That's not what marriage is. The west has just romanticized it.
He's totally right too, marriage was invented to like make you and your wife official under God right?
I ain't Christian I'm just curious.
That's not what marriage is.
