I'll agree that it's less essential in this part of the world, but here's the thing in one sense it's almost better not to get married at all and live your life entirely independently than to invest in marriage and then get divorced, because it really is an institution of trust where you depend on each other for things. My parents split up after 25 years of marriage, and both sides feel like they got a raw deal out of that, and it means neither of them are going to be able to retire when they planned to.
I also think that it's more necessary than perhaps most people our ages contemplate, because the necessity becomes much more apparent at middle age in our cultures than in less wealthy cultures, because it's not as necessary for bare subsistence. Incidentally, childbirth changes the equation dramatically, because it is ridiculously difficult to manage raising a child as a single parent while still meeting basic material needs and preparing for old age.
And yes I completely agree both with the notion that the Old Testament law makes absolutely zero none nada sense to do that now but that it actually could make sense within the context of that time period, though obviously modern sensibilities make it hard to fathom.
i think like, marriage is whatever, but its pretty broken as it is right now. but then if they changed it would it still be marriage? idk its your fucking opinion jerkoffs
