Swedish political party wants to ban marriage

News & Politics

Uh oh. Just what we need to give fuel to the anti-feminist fire:


A new political party in Sweden says it will abolish marriage if it gets into power.
The Feminist Initiative, which expects more than 20% of the vote in next year's election, claims marriage "is not about love, but about ownership".
FI founder Tiina Rosenberg, said: "Instead of marriage we want to promote a co-habitation law that ignores gender and allows more than two people in a partnership."
Huh. Clearly there are many problems with the institution of marriage--namely its history of misogyny, and here in the U.S. its unavailability to same-sex couples--but is this really the way to go? People want to get married; we’re frigging wedding obsessed!

I can just see the MensNewsDaily headlines now...sigh.

Any thoughts?
