← Marriage - two viewpoints

AsylumWarden's Avatar Jump to comment 17 by AsylumWarden

Marriage has always existed in society, they argue. But only since each area/culture/country has had a developed society, has there subsequently been marriage. Marriage never predates society. In other words, each definition of marriage has emerged following the emergence of a new society.

As we seem to be entering a new societal era (relatively speaking of course, through slow evolution!), why should we not subsequently be laying down our new definition of marriage that comes with it?
