MARRIAGE IS AN ARTIFICIAL INSTIUTION:

1) The human being is the most intelligent but the most dangerous animal on earth.

2) Where sex is concerned, humans are more obsessed with sex than the animals.

3) For entertainment and appeasement of sexual urges, humans have devised means like porn and prostitution.

4) Human beings rape people and in many cases force their own children, especially young girls, into prostitution.

5) There are millions of cases of biological fathers raping and impregnating their own daughters.

6) Humans have invented divorce and polygyny to satiate the sex urge since mating just one partner tends to wear off after a time - variety is the spice of life!

7) Humans are less faithful than animals but yet human beings have invented marriage to serve as a permanent bond between man and woman.

8) If the human species was meant to be strictly monogamous, then, we'd not lust after dozens of persons of the opposite or of the same sex as the case may be. Our attention would be fixated on just a single partner that we'd marry via arranged marriage and all thoughts of lusting after other individuals or indulging in pre or extra marital sex would be absent from our mind.

9) Marriage is as such an artifical institution and if maintaining psychological, vital-emotional and physical stability is the aim then the way out is to refrain from drawing in the psycho-vital-emotional-physica l energies from multiple partners by sticking to just one partner and if the condition is this that man and woman should stay chaste till marriage without sex thoughts crossing the mind and stay away from ogling others or entering into sexual affairs then monogamy should have been ingrained in human nature which it is not.

10) Partners can live togther and remain loyal to each other if that is in their nature even without exchanging mumbo jumbo religious vows.

Where the cloning of humans is concerned, I hear that cloning technology has been covertly perfected since a decade or more....

What need for mumbo jumbo religious vows when marriage is a mere contract of convenience for unpaid sex, sexual procreation, financial security and companionship?

Do religious vows sanctify or make pure a bond between man and woman? Far from it. Mere words uttered in the name of some god do not make marriage a sacred institution nor do they confer on the couple any psychological, vital or physical advantage. One can live together as man and wife even without taking these hollow vows. There's no causal mechanism that favors marriage. It's just another human device of convenience.

It is said that most birds are monogamous but most animals, fish, mammals, insects, reptiles and other life forms are not monogamous.

Monogamy is not a universal law nor is it hardwired in the consciousness of most species.

It would depend what the norm is, if it was refusing to have sex with donkeys I would say that is good judgement.

Since when is sex with donkeys considered normal by society? You're a strange person.

The fact of the matter is that many immoral acts might be considered the norm.

Obama's drone strikes of innocent women and children might end up being normal to you, aren't the drone strikes not conforming to societal norms?
