    Quite narcissistic, imo.

    The whole evolutionary purpose of sexuality is to find a mate to produce a family with.

    If that's not your intent then your relationship doesn't rise to any level disserving respect. You're just playing around, which is fine if that's all you want to do, but it is in no way even remotely as elevated as marriage.
    In it's basic terms, it's to continue the species. The concept of one-mate species is another issue and marriage which is only found in our species is an even further issue.

    Make no mistake - our design like all other animals is to mate to reproduce.

    See there I go assuming everyone is paying attention to context again Silly me

    Unless and until the state issues marriage licenses and divorce decrees to species other than human, I am only taking about humans. Therefore, I am speaking of the entire umbrella of human sexuality, which tends to best exist within structured marriages.

    Various types of marriages exist, sure, but that has no bearing on "BF/GF brake up = divorce".

    Well, first - there are 60+ pages of stuff here. Pardon me if I only went back a few posts to jump into the conversation.

    Second, you're painting a broad brush over our sexual tendencies by suggesting our evolutionary purpose is to find a mate (ie: to get married). IMO, it's still to reproduce just like we have a fight-or-flight reaction when something really bad is confronting us.

    All you had to do was read the thread title to get the context, but w/e

    You just agreed with me after disagreeing with me

    Absolutely, and I did. I also noticed that the discussion (as do most forum discussions) deviated a bit from the topic, or evolved which would be a better description.

    As for "agreeing" with you, let me refresh your memory since you posted this maybe a half hour ago:

    The whole evolutionary purpose of sexuality is to find a mate to produce a family with.
    Now that your memory is fully refreshed, allow me to once again disagree with you by suggesting that our evolutionary purpose of sexuality is to continue the species. In it's basic terms, of course. Not to find a "mate", not to produce a "family" per se, but to continue the species.

    Sure, the 2 of you can say you want to be exclusive, but you can also agree on what movie to see and in neither case would there an actual substative contract to that effect.
    Well then you are wrong. The "until death" doesn't automatically stop. People stick it out after your "breaches" often times.

    Again, WTF are you talking about? There is no "job".

    The whole evolutionary purpose of sexuality is to find a mate to produce a family with.
    No, it's to reproduce. Don't need a state sanctioned contract to do that. Or are you unable to understand that simple fact?


    If that's not your intent then your relationship doesn't rise to any level disserving respect. You're just playing around, which is fine if that's all you want to do, but it is in no way even remotely as elevated as marriage.
    Ah, so unless I am able to have children - or even WANT to - my relationships are irrelevant. I see. How's the view up there on that self-righteous high horse?

    So now only people with children can be married and are able to be injured by cheating?

    Creating a family is how we continue the species

    I'm not sure where you think you disagree.

    Right, they have the *option*, not the obligation.

    Creating a baby is how we continue the species.

    A "family" is another social matter.
