The Sanctity of Marriage

I stumbled upon this thought-provoking blog post in my Google Reader the other day. It presented the idea of people in a marriage having an agreement that the man gets to sleep with a woman other than the wife provided that he pays the wife a million dollars.

That is just absurd. What is the whole point of marriage for them? It sounds like it was one big business transaction from the start. It's insulting the way he uses words like "marriage", "in love", and "wife". That is not a marriage. That's not being in love. I guess that's how he views wives. It's truly disheartening.

This video clip of him guesting on Jimmy Kimmel caught my attention. His being "in love" with his "wife" is not laudable. Neither is his 50-year "marriage". It's not something to be proud of. I just don't get it.

I really think people should start fussing over heterosexual unions more rather than getting their panties in a bunch over gay marriage.This world is just twisted.
