“Hey Jeff,

How is married life?

I always wondered why evolutionists participated in a marriage! Did you ever wonder about the “origins” of marriage and family life? ”

Married life is great! Thank you for asking. We just got back from our belated honeymoon.

Well, I’d go further and suggest: why would secular people get married? Marriage has traditionally been a religious institution. As for the origins, I’ve looked casually at other cultures. It is amazing how different cultures view marriage and families.

I had a beautiful secular ceremony. We found a very good humanist officiant who was very poetic. Much better than a justice of the peace.

Their are some cultural icons which cannot be avoided. I still get Christmas gifts, and still give Christmas gifts, for example.

Anyway, I don’t want to get off topic. Why get married? For love.
