Approaching the last taboo

Witte is content to let people have sex with however many people they want. But in marriage, he says, the state must insist that it knows best. In a wedded union, three is a crowd. Brake argues for an almost complete disestablishment of marriage. Even same-sex marriage (SSM) advocates are too restrictive for Brake in that they would confer benefits on two people alone; SSM advocates leave out “urban tribes, best friends, quirkyalones, polyamorists” and other diverse groups united by a common bond of caring.
