the Court has elevated the private, inessential purposes of marriage to the highest point in the hierarchy of values of marriage. Given this new understanding, neither the longevity of marriage, nor fidelity within marriage can remain as important values. By the time the opponents of conjugal marriage are finished with their redefinitions, marriage will be little more than a five-year renewable-term contract. The Institution Formerly Known as Marriage will be nothing but a couple of individuals, loosely stapled together by the state.
Please note my post from a few days ago: lawmakers in Germany and in Australia are now seriously talking about creating 7 year renewable term marriage contracts.
Ok, so I was off by 2 years. But this deconstruction of marriage steamroller is coming at us faster than you may think.
