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.

Wow... So you really believe that ?

Marriage is inconsequential for that. It's only when you create a situation where everything is bad unless your married when this would apply.

It sounds like same kind of reasoning done by people that where pro-slavery and against women’s rights.

You could so easily that saying; 'Slavery saves society because otherwise all current-slaves would only be thief’s and murderers.'

This is not true, just like marriage has little to do with the kind of environment that children grow up in.

A good house with loving parents can be just as easily be in a married or non-married settings. Heck even the number of parents is not really that important... I mean 2, 3, 4 maybe 5 adults in a parent role ? why not ?

Many family have there grand-parents live with them... when they are active in a parent-role for the children you now have 3 or 4 parents... maybe there is a much older sibbling or other family living in your house helping out with parenting... that gives you 5 parents... maybe there was a divorce and now you have 2 mommies or 2 daddies.. all these variations can just as well yield a loving caring home as much as they can lead to a disfunctional family.

Knowing people that are scared for life growing up in a 'normal' married-coupled family with abusive parents and people that had a perfect childhood with there lesbian aunts, I get a little irritating when I read that marriage 'saves the planet' or is the only road to a good childhood.
