Society develops manners and a work ethic because woman exist. Having sex is a privilege of married people. It is not a road test for marriage; it is marriage. The point seems to be lost on these people that on a practical and emotional level, there is virtually no difference between the dissolution of a cohabiting relationship and the dissolution of a marital relationship. And yet, good research shows marriage is curiously what has done the most to not only level the playing field between men and women, but actually shift the balance of power in women’s favor for the last few millennia.

Nevertheless, despite the religious decrees dictating all lives in the community the religious supremacists never give much thought to their own words describing human relationships from their Tutor and which Jesus in his wisdom condoned “cohabitation” read, “shacking up” using scripture; please remember that “shacking up” was merely the religious attempt, the Church’s attempt, to denigrate lifestyle not conforming with or sanctified by, the church.
