These articles are both, right up my alley.
They are another couple of nails in the coffin of the way things have been done without question for some time now.
I speak of the patriarchy, marriage and everything spinning around these two axis that needs a good dose of change IMHO.

A quick recap.
It’s true that much good has come from this way of living over the past few centuries, but holding the good to account are volumes of bad with just one example (of many) being, one woman is murdered by her current or former partner every week in Australia currently. Check out more here;
For mine, I am strongly of the opinion we have it arse about presently and whilst we humans love company and cohabitation can be a great thing, when it comes to relationships, we need options rather than a contract.
These two articles affirm to me that this is the direction we are heading and I am happy where the compass needle is currently pointing.
I will continue to write about this massive subject as I get my head around it, but until then…get scrubbin!
