Marriage – why not?


I always tried to stick to the Platonic form of love
as the most rational, reliable and relevant,
especially in our age of planet-risking over-population.
Quarrels was my horror always,
and in matrimony they can never be avoided.
I was once deceived and quite determined
never to become deceived again,
and I was never willing to end up
a hero under any slipper.
You can have as free and independent any number
of good friends of any gender,
but as married, one relationship must dominate all others,
which was never in accordance with my democratic freedom soul.
The final argument, that as a free man
you can love the more,
is maybe though the most decisive,
vital and determining my fate.
