Nuclear families are a necessity for economic stability, if we denormalize families, that will only lead to a further expansion of the welfare state.
1. Can you substantiate the assertion that “Nuclear families are a necessity for economic stability”?
2. What is there in that position that precludes same sex or polygamous marriage?
Kris & Gondring, if you "get govt out of the marriage license biz," then you've got to simultaneously shut down the entire welfare system.
Since the govt is involved in being the "back-up" safety valve system for broken families, it has a vested interested in overseeing the front-end "commitments" & covenants & Points of accountability not be denormalized into an "anything goes" society.
If you get the govt out of the marriage biz, that includes divorce courts, holding spouses/parents (deadbeat dads) accountable, and just let them all fend for themselves re: what they can get from private aid.
