I still don't think it matters whether you're married or not though, but that's another matter Smile | :)

This is much too complex a subject to be covered in a short post, but I'll try...

The problem is that, as the Chinese ideogram for "mother" hints, everyone has a mother. Who the father is, is less certain. Smile | :)

Shorn of the religious part, traditional (m-f) marriage is an attempt to balance between the obligation of the man to support his children and his fear (in the days before genetic testing) that his wife's children are not his, and that therefore he is supporting some freeloader's children. In marriage, a man agrees to support all children born in the marriage, and the woman agrees that her children will only be sired by the man. OTOH, there was no obligation on the man to support children born out of wedlock.

This is one of the reasons why unfaithfulness by the woman was treated much more seriously than unfaithfulness by the man - it consisted possible fraud.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
