Atypique Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 1 hour ago, Themathlover said: I don't know if alloromantics feel the same about it, but the value attributed to marriage in secular societies by atheist people has always left me perplex. If you're not in any religion and don't believe that marriage is a sacred command, then, what's so special in it ? I think that it became part of the culture because of religion, but as part of the culture it kept the same ideal aspect and remained important for atheist people ? I know that my (french, atheist) parents married to get things easier for kids and have a reason to gather both friends and family in a big party. As for me, I don't think I would marry because it's a nonsense social construct, and also because even if I want to get really close friends, I don't want to have one special one, so marrying just one person would make no sense. Also even if polygamy was legal (and marrying multiple people), I wouldn't want to sign a contract to state of my friendships, because my friends are more than just a sheet of paper. So yeah. No marriage for me, at all. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
