Smart Sex: Finding Life-Long Love in a Hook-up World.
The author, Jennifer Roback Morse takes too hard a line with her final analyses on intimate relationship matters.
Her views on marriage for homosexuals, while setup by regarding marriage as primarily a means of procreating, ignore the fact that gays have the same feelings and, even more importantly, that MANY hetero couples don't want to be breeders either.
I think she's got some rational insights and would love to see her empirical data. I'm betting it would support her thesis for, yes, a majority of homo sapiens.
She still misses the point that not everyone wants life-long love, nor should anyone be subject to laws which descriminate against such a lack of desire, any more than we should for other adult desires which don't involve people w/o the ability to consent.
