I have wanted to write about marriage for a while so what better time to do it than when Tiger Woods is all over the news?
Let’s set the foundation. Marriage is an institution promoted by governments to not only collect income tax from the profits generated in all the cost involved in the wedding, but also promote the idea of “family” to create stability and sustain population. These are efforts to ensure the government has enough revenue to be self sustaining. For those reasons, the government created more than 1,000 legal rights for married couples to promote the behavior of getting married. (refer to my other posts for other examples of where the government changes behavior through legislation)
