Thanks Kris! I did chuckle at how many people in your comments kept saying marriage is good for mental health or child-rearing (which no one was denying) but they missed the larger point you made that when you create a consumer environment and slap a title on it, it means very little and isn’t the point of a long term relationship. All that to say, thanks for the idea that spawned this article.
