At one point in last night's discussion, I compared state laws about marriage to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).
A friend commented afterward: "how romantic -- JE really knows how to sweet talk!"
Perhaps I should write an ode
To our great Commercial Code.
Of course, people routinely talk about "the marriage contract." And psychologists frequently talk about the need for couples to "negotiate fairly." And Objectivists always talk about romantic relationships being based on "trading value for value."
Whether quirky or Uniform,
Marriage works to keep hearts warm.
