Philosophers' Café

What purpose does marriage serve today?

Co-sponsored by the Port Moody Public Library.

Marriage has been a crucial tradition for political, religious, economic and social reasons for many centuries. Today, many people choose to get married as an expression of love. Has marriage become a measure of love, or are we blindly following an outdated tradition? How does society view adults who are married versus those who are not?
