Marriage is a legally binding contract.

Does any one view it on the same lines as prostitution or consentual slavery? Where a man agrees to care for a woman in return for specific "services?"

  • So if the woman is the primary breadwinner.. that makes my hubby a man-whore? Hmmm.... I'll have to try calling him that tonight-- he might actually like it. :)

  • Ummmmmm, no. Only if you are married to an insensitive tyrant.

  • No...I don't understand why you would question it being even in the same category.

  • no, for one thing marriage is for you to spend your life with someone. for another who says he is taking care of me and who says he gets a gaurantee on specific "services"

  • In a marriage contract both parties agree to care for and support the other, to respect and honor each other. A marriage contract is not intended to make one the servant of the other. A prostitute agrees to perform services for a price and fulfill the wants of the person paying whether that is a dominent position or subservient position is up to the customer.

  • I feel as if it was that way back in the 50's but not now.

  • Would you actually marry a man who expected "services" in trade for his "taking care of me"! That is not a marriage.
