Joan Morgan on Marriage

"We don't really seem to analyze the fact that marriage is a complicated institution as it exists in the 21st Century precisely because it was never designed historically to be about romantic love. It was very financially based, and church-based. It fed the church's need to consistently support and reproduce itself. Maybe the question is not "Why can't I get married?" but 'Does marriage, in the way that it exists, with no revision possible, fulfill who we are in the 21st Century?' Or is there another way to form productive long-lasting meaningful relationships?"
