I couldn’t agree more with Robert’s post below on the importance of monogamy. More and more, we are coming to see that the life we value is based on culture and the deep truths that reside within cultural forms, rather than on abstract rights merely, or on so-called scientific imperatives. Ross Douthat recently had a column in the New York Times making the same point about the importance of marriage as we understand it. Monogamous marriage may not even be the most common form of mating in the world and throughout history, he said, but it is basic to our way of life.
