  •  That's an understatement (0+ / 0-)

    The truth is that every society rewrites the rules of marriage and family.

    Known history includes societies in which it was common to marry your sister (ancient Egypt), various kinds of polygamy and group marriage, varying degrees of toleration of keeping a mistress, concubinage (what exactly is a concubine -- a live-in mistress who doesn't have the status of a wife?), and some matriarchies.  

    We're all pretty crazy some way or other; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is just a setting on the dryer.
