Like fish in the ocean having little awareness of water, our collective intellect has forgotten about the forces managed by marriage.
Say the word “marriage,” and what is another word it brings to mind? How many of us would say “sex”? How many of us relate it to a father’s parental rights? How many of us zoom directly into “parental responsibility” at the thought? More often, don’t we associate marriage more and more with social status, a lifestyle, or a philosophy?
Many argue that marriage is an outdated institution. Others say it’s changing, moving as society moves and evolving as lifestyles and philosophies evolve. Yet while marriage is a social state and a lifestyle, and it is based on a philosophy of well-being, it is also based on innate biological forces.
