The guide was an educated young man btw... sad
So it's safe to say that the majority of the world doesn't allow same sex marriage. Now that's not to say anything good or bad. Remember, we are only talking about numbers here.
So in order for same sex marriage to be even close to the norm, 77 more countries need to recognize this. (That means the majority 99 countries yes and 97 countries no).
The list I would like to see.......Of the 173 current countries that don't allow same sex marriage, which one's are more likely to change their position on the issue? That would be jetpunk GOLD.
I don't think a majority will happen anytime soon, but, as a Gen Z, I could forsee it happening within my lifetime.
I do agree that men with power will always monopolise most things, including sex, if they want it.
You could certainly make an argument that it has changed enough over time that the statements no longer hold, but "I'm married and" is not that argument.
It's hard for me personally to figure out in what respects marriage protects the individual except for giving access to various things which should clearly not be hidden behind marriage in the first place.
If you want to delve further into this topic, I suggest reading Aldous Huxley’s book, Brave New World, which provides a fascinating perspective on why marriage or at the very least monogamy is important. While the book is definitely not PC as it was written in the 1931, the underlying message still rings true and I would definitely suggest reading it.
Time for an update!
