Perspective: monogamy is anti-human nature; in this era where each parent could raise a kid independently, marriage tends to be a shackle on many aspects of life. We live once, why does society expect us to live with 1 person for 60+ years? No wonder divorce rates are through the roof!

My hypothesis is that divorce rates spiked because people were pressured into marrying when they were 19 years old. When divorce became acceptable, all these people that married someone then they were still children realized they didn't have to stick with them forever. Now that the marriage age is trending upwards and people are more mature and pick a better partner, divorce rates are continuing to drop. I think marriage is fantastic and I love having a partner that's going to be with me for the long haul. If marriage isn't for you, that's totally fine. Live your life the way that brings you fulfillment.

And I’m some cases, they made the right choice at a young age. My parents celebrated 50 years of marriage this year - married at 18 and 21. They legitimately still deeply love and enjoy each other. Does it work for every person or every couple, no. But when it does work, it’s incredible.

Incorrect. Divorce rates have been falling through the decades, and at the lowest since 1970s. 14.9 per 1000 is more floor than roof. Respect your personal opinion, but data does not back it up. Try again.

Nope, divorce rate is not going through the roof (see data). That being said, if you personally don't feel monogamy is for you, you should be able to not be monogamic - and don't give a F for what people think

A lot of experts agree monogamy isn’t natural, especially from an evolutionary perspective. It’s a relatively recent societal invention.

You can’t point to a first human, so you can’t say it’s existed since the beginning. And even today there are cultures around the the world that aren’t monogamous.

People change, both you and your spouse; why are we expected to stick it through a multi decade relationship, and bind ourselves with a big contract?

Relax, no one is judging no one lol... obviously monogamy-for-life is mainstream, my opinion would be deemed controversial and judged by majority, if anything

Humans arent hardwired to live past 50, so we are meant to be monogamous for life until the kids grow up. With that being said the hardwired point is moot imo because there are a lot of things we arent hardwired for yet we still do, for ex: sitting on a chair staring at your computer screen for 10 hours a day.

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?
