Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

Yes I know, I know. It is possible, but children needs caring parents. But as someone posted, that if a bastard child shows up, we need also to care to them. But do you think all illegitimate children ends up of being good citizens? And all illegitimate children ends up in a healthy environment?
So preserving the integrity of marriage is to preserve a healthy society.

I don't see how what you say above supports your conclusion. Why should marriage (which is a religious or civil contract) influence the conditions in which children are raised (which depends on the conditions in which parents are living, on the quality of the relationship between them, on the individual quirks of the parents...)

If anything, I'd tend to say that people marrying "because they socially must" has resulted in a huge lots of divorces (33% in my home country), whose complexity and duration makes parent separation even harder for children. To the contrary, I think that in Sweden, the proportion of couples who don't feel the need to marry is around 25%, yet this country manages to reach the highest level of human development, happiness, etc.
