Marriage as a construct, is believed to have originated from a religious foundation with monogamy being one of the core values…although historically, or rather biblically, not one notable figurehead in the number one selling book has been reported as monogamous. Take Solomon for example…he not only had 700 documented wives, but he also kept over 300 concubines. Most men have a hard time satisfying a single woman, so imagine how dissatisfied all of those women probably were both emotionally and sexually. Resulting in an unstable cocktail of a high rate of marital failure, confusion and general loss of hope. Making me believe it might be time to review how necessary it is to sign your single life away on the dotted line.
We live in a time where human beings battle their wiring against the modern emotional and digital age. An age which doesn’t allow for monogamous relationships to even be sustainable. Men biologically are wired to provide, protect and produce, women are wired to make babies, nurture, and be dependent on antidepressants. A foundation fighting against the juxtaposed, ego-driven, social media culture, a culture where expression of emotions, flashing material objects like unnecessary eyewear to increase ones appeal. And BECAUSE this ultimately leaves people unfulfilled, masses have turned to validation sought out in an adulterous, physical manner.
Then there is society’s issue with the legalization and recognition of same-sex marriage. It holds a very essential weight in a conglomeration of power trip issues over bedroom antics and not love. So, what do we do to resolve this issue? Should we redefine marriage, giving it a whole new title? Lady slavery was the original choice, but it needs to be more gender neutral, so maybe we should just consider calling it condemnation? I believe it better suits what you are signing up for, but it’s definitely going to change the ratings of the Bachelor.

Its a fleeting moment, blink and you will miss it. Its those lil statements that happen between a boyfriend and girlfriend that change the path forever. I was lucky enough to catch the moment by a stroke of luck…I just hope I’m not going to be called in on an instant replay challenge. (that was a football reference…impressed…I am:)
My girlfriend had a small group of people over to watch football with her and her boyfriend. One of the couples brought their small children and in childlike manner they convinced my girlfriend to throw them in the air repeatedly. She tired quickly and then it happened…
Boyfriend said…”babe, looks like you don’t even need to have a gym membership anymore!”
Then she replied…”I know, you just need to get me a kid….”
GULP, there it was. Her ovaries started to swell, the hamster in her brain called into action and she began to recall every action/comment that may have referenced them either moving forward in their relationship, or standing still…
Clearly they are both at fault, I just hope I’m not here when the need for conversations over chunky schweddy balled ice cream comes into play, I can’t afford a new wardrobe.Leave A Comment »
