What I'm against is the presumption that marriage (or commitment, or monoamory) is the sole pathway to happiness. Mind you, it does seem that future generations are more in line with my thinking, but there's always that culture war raging on.
I'm not saying it's the pathway to happiness at all.
But if marriage DOES make those people happy, then good!
Like I said, to each his own.
