13:00 Topic: Shoud the Seven-Year Itch Legalized?
This article cites a Bavarian politician who proposed that marriage be for seven years with an option to renew. Notice how her opponent, who considers this idea un-Christian, has had a dent put in his reputation because he had a child by his mistress. Minx talks about the flawed concept of lifetime love and devotion and is all for the idea of marriage lasting, say, just four years, based on Helen Fisher’s research on The Anatomy of Love and the fact that across 62 cultures, divorce rates peak at the four-year mark.
