Marriage: Politics vs. Society

That's the title (and topic) of my latest C4SS op-ed:

Marriage has existed, in one form or another, for as long as humankind. Monogamous, (theoretically) life-long heterosexual marriage with property equality between partners is only one such form. If that form was truly superior to all conceivable others in all ways, it wouldn't need a politician with a tin badge and a .44 Magnum to "protect" it from competing alternatives.

Check it out.
