Traditional Marriage

October 10, 2008

I write this blog to express my views on traditional marriage.  I have very strong religious beliefs about the sanctity and divine nature of marriage – that it was established by God between a man and a woman and that it is essential (as defined by Him) to his plan for our happiness.  I also believe that marriage as traditionally defined by society for thousands of years is a sort of unwritten social contract.  That a man and a woman make a committment to use their powers of pro-creation in a way beneficial to society, e.g. to bring children into the world in a environment which is most likely to facilitate their development into upstanding and trustworthy citizens in the future; in turn society accords a unique recognition of this relationship by calling it marriage.  Either way you view it, traditional marriage between a man and a woman is the bedrock of society and it is imperative that we protect and preserve it.
