Marriage is an Economic Trade?

Marriage is an Economic Trade? April 30, 2018

Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog has a rambling piece posted about marriage. He is claiming that marriage is an economic trade, women put out sex to be financially supported. Makes it sound like women are just all some sort of prostitute, trading sex for money in some form. How awful!

Does anyone marry for those reasons any longer? Maybe back in the days before women were educated and it was no longer socially unacceptable to work, or if you’re someone like Lori Alexander. Usually some love is involved too. Why marry someone you do not adore? No reason for it. Don’t marry those you don’t love, that you don’t feel like you cannot live without, because you will regret it at some point.

Prostitution is in no way a gross copy fake of marriage! Most sex workers would be offended by such a comparison. Let’s leave them alone in ideas of what marriage is.

Doug’s silly words remind me of a P!nk song: (song nsfw – dirty words)

The sad thing about all of this assumption that women are leveraging sex for money is that the only communities I see this routinely happening in are in the fundamentalist communities, like Vaughn Ohlman matching kids together with no input from the kids but with daddy paying ‘Bride Price’, or places like the Duggar family where Jim Bob Duggar is the ultimate authority in who gets the chance to marry one of his daughters. The women in fundamentalism Quiverfull rarely get much of a say in who they marry. It’s their own fathers whoring them out.
