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...

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.
