PREFACE. Every mortal desires to be happy. Above all else, man seeks happiness and what is this envied goal for which all strive It is a condition in which all things are nicely and evenly adjusted a state of peace, of freedom from strife and turmoil, of contentment, without fric tion, hindrance or restraint. Anything less than this is not happiness, but something approximat ing happiness perhaps. When man becomes natural, he will be free he will be at peace with himself and his neighbor he will be happy. And, it follows axiomatical ly that the secret of mans happiness lies in a proper recognition by him of the law back of all his activities. It has taken many centuries of pain and pri vation, of want and worry, of restlessness and re volt and revolution, to bring about the compara tive freedom he now enjoys. And the struggle all along the bloody course has been to displace the fraudulent and the artificial with the real and 7 8 LETS CIVILIZE THE MARRIAGE LAWS. the natural. Probably the greatest obstruction to mans advance along real moral lines that might insure his perfect freedom, and a near ap-. proach to the millennium for which he has yearned has beenthe sham and pretense and hypocrisy that have characterized all the dealings of the ruling classes, and the blind following, stupid obedience and superstitous credulity of the masses A supine and servile submission to arrogated authority, and a senseless adherence to precept and precedent have served to check initiative, to hamper ambition, to suppress emotions, to throt tle budding genius, and to kill aborning the high est hopes of the human heart. Until within the last few golden decades, man has been required to measure his conduct, to control his desires, to stifle his impulses, in accordance with the arbi trary notions and theories and customs of his an cestors. And, this ancestral worship which he has unconsciously practiced this dependence upon d fad men and dead philosophies has held him out of his rightful estate, and retarded the progress of the world a thousand years. Now, every man has a right to his opinion, and he may give expression to it without respect to the notions or beliefs of those in authority. In deed, among the many privileges the present era accords to every man is the right to think, and to proclaim just what he thinks, although PREFACE. 9 his opinions and conjectures controvert the theories and over-turn the accepted hypotheses of centuries. As a result of this new order, there have arisen from the ranks, from among the common people born out of the purple and the church the men of real force in the worlds advance and these normal, full-statured men are recasting the moral conceptions of Society, and are thus work ing out the salvation of the race. Among the great reforms being agitated, by which it is hoped to secure the freedom and to in crease the wellbeing of mankind, is the world wide movement to reconstruct the Marriage Laws. The present marriage system, established upon ecclesiastic ideals, has been found to be de fective and deficient, and not only inadequate to meet the demands and requirements of this age, but conducive to social unrest, and d tructivg Jn many instances of the home and famThTwhich it . m, ., ., n. i s, n, rf, t J r t, i lt was Imposed to conserve...
