Thanks for updating us on this newly arrived world-wide
issue. Congratulations to Spain!
Disclaimer: The institute of marriage is not necessarily a futuristic
plan. I wonder how transhumanists in the coming generations will develop
relationship contracts that are not so historically binding by "death do us
part" sentiment. And about that "sex" word ...
Gender restriction is another human biological/psychological
characteristic. How will we view marriage when we are able to interchange
I do think being in a committed loving relationship adds to the long,
healthy, happy lives; but it is a human institute. In the future, when we
no longer reside only in one reality or one gender, it will be interesting
to see if marriage is entirely discarded, or if the rules of marriage are
revised to include multiple relationships for multiple environments. Even
if a type of contractual institute such as marriage will be necessary for
long, healthy, happy lives. If not, what would replace it? An evolved
psychology? Perhaps a transhumanist psychology in which we provide a
transhuman-posthuman wide-spread environment of inclusively, support,
nurturing, friendship, and connectivity.
