Why would the younger of the pair be punished in an older/younger relationship. If anything that sort of thing creeps us out because of the power dynamics that are involved, meaning the older gentleman has more power in the relationship than the younger. So my guess it was because of the gender of the two.

The answer seems clear: Strip away the benefits of marriage.

Why should one type of relationship - monogamous marriage, for example - be elevated above any other?

I actually agree with you here. Marriage shouldn't be a state sanctioned institution but rather, the symbolic devotion of commitment between two or more people.

This. It should be whatever a specific religion or institution wants it to be.

What would you say about divorce? Would you support religions/private institutions setting their own rules for divorce. Like if a church said that in order for you to get married here, you have to sign a pre-nup, would that work?

Otherwise, the state really has to get involved right?

Didn't really put much thought into it.

I don't think a church could/should be able to dictate individual finances like that. I would say pre-nups would go through the state. Anyone party could enter one regardless of type of partnership. If that makes any sense.

That is some startling stuff. 6.15 births per woman? Holy shit! And I live in Utah

Also, wtf is "the decline of atheism?" I thought that was on the up.
