Interesting Salon interview about the history of marriage. It's easy to forget that the idea that one marries for romantic love is actually pretty recent...
Comment from djedi:
Yeah, ideas on marriage and love have varied considerably even just over the last 2 thousand years or so. I personally like the ancient Greek's system; Guy/guy love is definitely the best. :P
When you really analyse how early Christians felt about marriage it really sucks all the fun out of it.
