The advantages of marriage between a man and woman include:

  • the combined experience to raise both boys and girls
  • enjoyment and interests in complementary aspects of childrearing
  • having a partner with different, and complimentary, outlook and concerns
  • in the absence of sexually transmitted diseases or infertility, the ability to have children from birth
  • having a partner with different domestic interests and abilities
  • the combined experience to deal with others
  • an institution that has thrived for millennia
  • less domestic violence due to very different physical strengths and different reactions to problems
  • less tendency for partners to compete, and more tendency for positive reinforcement
