Love is in the air here at Skepchick HQ.Â Our fearless leader has succumbed to it and was wed last weekendÂ and we’re still all mostly riding the high of happiness and joy in seeing two of our closest friends decide to spend the rest of their lives together.
But not everyone agrees that marriage is rational, logical or a good thing. In the congratulations thread this week, several folks mentioned thinking that marriage was inherently irrational, outdated, religious and even misogynistic.
The thread, which was supposed to be about congratulating the happy couple, quickly got derailed so I thought I’d use an AI to spur the debate.
What do you think? Is it rational to get married? Is it a skeptical, reasonable action to take?
When responding, if you feel comfortable with it, let us know if you’re married or not. I’m curious :)
