Hello. Thanks for visiting our Philosophy of Sex pages. We have spent considerable
time searching the internet for good quality sites related to Human Sexuality,
Sexual Health & Relationships. Below you will find an interesting selection
of articles & websites on Marriage, i.e. the history
of marriage, impact of religion and culture, why people get married, gay
and lesbian / same sex marriage, chastity, morality, feminism and gender
roles, wedding vows, marriage counseling, statistics and divorce.
Compared with other search terms, 'marriage' gets relatively few searches (though 'wedding' is higher, presumably more women are searching the internet for wedding ideas, as they plan their big day).
The top ten related searches for marriage are;
marriage (4,000), gay marriage (1,300), counselor marriage (1,000), marriage vows (830), marriage records (655), marriage counseling (1,000), same sex marriage (1,000), marriage license (500), marriage celebrant (450), same sex marriages (365)
We hope you find the following Marriage articles & websites interesting,
useful, thoughtful and fun.

Nearly everyone in the US has sex before marriage, a new survey shows.
Dr. Lawrence Finer, (The Guttmacher Institute in New York City) was prompted to do the study by increasingly widespread public and private efforts to promote abstinence until marriage. 'Our motivation,' he said, 'was to say - is this a goal that can realistically be achieved; does this approach make sense?'
'Evidence from the past 50 years suggests that establishing abstinence until marriage as normative behavior is a challenging goal,' Finer concludes in his report, 'These findings argue for education and interventions that provide young people with the skills and information they need to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases once they become sexually active.'

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
