I'd love to ban marriage licences and registrations all together.
The only reason why anyone would want to get government involved with marriage is economic, mainly taxes and retirement. Cancel those incentives which are primarily unfair to women, cancel marriage licences and cancel divorces. Anyone can be with whomever and no one would care.
What if your wife (to be) is from a country that you need to be married to be with with her and have kids with because of social and cultural traditions and regulations? Or maybe that's what she desires and also wants to secure childrens future and safety.
There is no "secure children future and safety" option anymore. What we have to deal with, no previous generation in modern history had to. And I'm talking climate change, tens of trillions of debt, A.I coming after your job, the internet and social media, etc...
In other words, what we're collectively going through now has little to no connection with the collective values that makes our/your culture, and the change had been so rapid, "traditions" became a signal of someone who is scared, and is both unable and unwilling to adapt to the times.
Also, never forget, good contracts dont protect you from people with bad intentions, and, if you need a contract to protect and secure your children's future, then you're getting into bed with the wrong person.
What has this to do with marriage, aka tax relief, inheritance, insurance, pension, child support, "keep your dick in your pants and do what you're told, or I'll take you to the cleaners?"click to expand
