66. Leave it alone. I disagree with your position wholeheartedly
And I grow weary of explaining myself over and over ad nauseum to you.


We don't agree. I do see this as a form of slavery not much different from marriage in the middle east where women have little recourse to remove themselves from them legally.

I find it a step in the wrong direction for human rights when you use the force of law to make it difficult for a person to extricate themselves from a potentially terrible situation.

I find that there is an extremely high potential for social/emotional coercion into this type of arrangement that is detrimental to the values of a free society.

You disagree with me. I understand that.

I think if people want to stay together forever they should do so because they WANT to. You believe it requires some kind of external force of law to make it happen.

I disagree with you completely on this issue.

I am done discussing this with you.
