7 Th Thinking Hat Reg: Why not get rid of the compulsory system?

Surprised to hear this comment from a senior citizen.

System of marriage and family is a social institution that had evolved in a natural way in almost all religions and races and cultures long before laws of marriage and divorce were spewn from english-frothing mouths. Given that perspective questioning the institution of marraige is like reviewing use of legs as an organ for walking or, thinking why we cannot use hands in addition to or in lieu of legs.

For all that bad things said about marriage and crude and lewd jokes on marriage, most people are settled with it and accept it, with all its warts and irritants.

Eradicating an institution of marriage will hand over to you a new problem, a vacuam without traditional family boundaries that we know understand and observe. It also resolves the problem of responsibility for raising children and inheritance.

Many cases of divorce that are seen these days could be tackled by proper pre and post marriage councelling. I believe that in domestic matters, people need to adopt in a conscious way management principles that are taught in B schools. Communication, work sharing, priveleges and rights, crisis handling, team spirit, conflict resolution are all concepts that are as appropriate to corporates as to even a neuclear family. Court is not the solution for all marital problems; in any case not always.

Charu Sir, your idea is nothing new.

The west had already experimented with free style living by way of Hippie culture that was such a phenomenon in the early/ mid seventies. The hippie movement failed and died a natural death without even any society or law working against it. People had reverted to marraige, conevntional style.

Even OSHO, who propounded a theory of living in a commune -a fluid relationship style- threw a caveat for his experiment; that only highly meditative people are fit for such living. It will be a pitfall for ordinary people. I suppose, considering your age you are not at risk.

There is no use in re-inventing a re-invented wheel.
