Nancy Pelosi asks: Why would anybody get married? And you know, as much as I would like to roll my eyes and jump on the "Look what Pelosi said this time" bandwagon, I think this may be one of the better questions that the former Speaker of the House has ever produced. I should like to endeavor to answer her in my own non-linear way if I may.
Interestingly, Ms. Pelosi provokes our responses mostly to further the feminist meme which maintains that marriage is an institution of enslavement that was rendered obsolete when women finally gained control of their biology and became men. Nevertheless, I think we should take the time to sincerely reflect on Pelosi's inquiry by reviewing what the antiquated construct of marriage actually hopes to achieve versus what progressivism wishes it achieved. Consider…Why does marriage exist?
