well if you look at all of human history strict monogamy is the exception, not the rule.
Personally I trust that when my significant other is with someone else she'll come back to me soon enough.
I prefer that trust to believing that everyone around me is keeping to some archaic rule set. Trust in one person is far better than trust in hundreds of thousands.
But can we not overcome the need for these long-standing safety rules with modern materials and a slight bit of fore thought? Rather than teaching children and immature adults only the these rules delivered from on high solely by fiat, one could say "this is optimal for safety, however there are many other options as well, so long as you practice these safety procedures consistently you will be safe"?
Is there really a good reason why we should stick solely with rules that are a thousand years old?
If so then should we not follow all of them? Do I get to start stoning people?
If only the constitution could force people to read and understand it, more people wouldn't make the same mistake the GP makes.
But then again, given the power many corporations have over our lives maybe most people don't see much of a difference between the US Government and Corporations?
Whoa! Wait a second, Ice Pirates was a hilarious and campy film and very worth every inch of celluloid.
I mean where else would you ever see a ship get space herpes?
Well you know half a Billion in DVD sales and he still owes 80 Million, such is the hazards trying to tell a great story.
It really makes you wonder why anyone really tries anymore.
So rather than put all the adults into one place and make it easier for adults to find adult stuff you want to put all the kids stuff in one place for adults^H^H^H^H^H^Hkids to find kids stuff?
*ahem* I can see this going badly
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure there is nothing in the US Constitution to prevent the government from buying information from a person or a non-person.
