Picture of the Day July 31, 2008

In today’s Picture of the Day, the so-called ‘Trees of Love’ with padlocks placed by newlyweds to seal their love, are seen across Luzhkov bridge in downtown Moscow, Wednesday. A recent Russian tradition involves newlyweds placing a padlock at one of the iron trees on Luzhkov bridge to lock their love, and as long as the padlock remains, the couple’s love will remain locked. (July 30, 2008)

Monogamy, what a quaint custom!

If we built Trees of Love in the United States that would lock a couple’s love as long as the padlock remained, both parties to the marriage would have to have a key, and a third key left in the padlock, just in case.

According to how one reads the statistics, monogamy in or out of marriage is becoming an endangered species.

I know why, a long time ago, monogamy didn’t work for me, but I am curious why it didn’t work for everyone else. How many can say they are still in a monogamous state of marriage? This is barring widowers and ghosts, of course.
