I agree w Chrysalis - and communal living would be even more efficient!

Actually living together would use LESS resources. Two (or more) people living in the same household would not need one of everything (i.e. tv's , washing machines, etc.) but would, in fact, share those things. Not to mention having to build a whole new house to live in using up much more resources.

Yup Steve. That's what the article was all about. maybe thats why societies evolved this way. It occurred to me that individuals in economically developed societies tend to live alone - more than the less developed societies. Where the concept of 'joint family system' is alive n thriving. Bcz they have less resources to spare.

btw belated welcome to the forums.

lol @ how to do it  why :p

Marriage has many benefits... I think as a woman, I would rather be with a man who is willing to commit himself to me via marriage rather than just be in a non-marital 'relationship' where a man has everything to gain, and a woman has everything to lose ;)

That is my opinion.

One could make a list of how marriage is beneficial. It has many emotional, physical, financial and social advantages.

Maybe marriage ought to be mandated because of the beneficial impacts on anthropogenic climate change.

The issue isn't about marriage. It's about square feet per person. There are married couples who live in ten room mansions, often poorly isolated against heat or cold. There are singles who live in small apartments featuring double or triple glass window panes separated by an air or other gas filled space to reduce heat transfer across a part of the building envelope.

What the planet needs is modesty. Our resources are limited.
