“When you put men and women in society they eventually produce children. And society has to figure out what to do with them [the children]. If they allow anyone to do what they want you end up with irresponsible men, exploiting women and neglecting children. You don’t sustain a society from generation to generation with this self-oriented model of sexuality and marriage.”
Consequently, “societies have to come to the conclusions that their needs to be a societal orienting of this eventual production of children into a stable relationship of the father and the mother to raise the children that they produce. It is a lifelong commitment; it is sexually exclusive between the people and monogamous. This is the best environment for raising children."
