  •  Intimate human relationships are not (1+ / 0-)

    primarily a rational business contract. Over a long period of time there is always some dependency involved. I am distrustful of any paradigm that all relationships are expected to conform to. We are still struggling to shed the traditional view that they must always be heterosexual in which wives play a submissive role.

    As a society we have to set some outer bounds that define legally acceptable limits on human behavior. Consent and the legal capacity to give it is the basic standard. Where two adults voluntarily enter into a marriage and appear to both find it functional, it seems unreasonable to me to compare that to an abusive exploitative situation such as that of which Allen is being accused.
