Not only does the car appeal to me as an economically sensible candidate to replace my 18 year old Integra, the design of the drive system totally fascinates my inner engineering geek. Eagerly awaiting the Fall release of the #NextGenVolt .
Which definition is that? The one that requires wives to be submissive to their husbands? Or the one that treats women as property?
Here's some excellent bedtime reading for Supreme Court justices willing to step away from simplistic views of marriage (and other things), both by John Boswell, a historian at Yale:
Same-Sex Unions in Pre-Modern Europe
Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality: Gay People in Western Europe from the Beginning of the Christian Era to the Fourteenth Century
In the past marriages were arranged, or declared upon the event of a pregnancy, for economic reasons, etc. The purpose was procreation. Children were an economic asset, they provided for you in old age, etc. It was quite common in many cultures to have both a spouse and a lover on the side. There are exceptions of course, but nearly all cultures of the past defined marriage as a union between one or more men and one or more women.
Which is neither here nor there, as we are not in the past, we are in the present. We abandoned the notion that marriages must be arranged and approved by parents, and we can also abandon the idea that marriages bust be between different sexes.
