Do you think it's "right" that society has accepted cohabitation (couples living together in an intimate relationship without marriage) as a norm?

It's normal. Marriage has only been part of human life for a brief relative time.

Marriage as we know it has only been around for a few hundred years. For millennia we did without it.

Biased poll
Stefy says2015-06-03T22:08:40.5561162-05:00
Why?
UtherPenguin says2015-06-03T22:11:12.7686201-05:00
@Stefy The wording of the title makes the question loaded.
TBR says2015-06-03T22:24:24.5519380-05:00
Yea, I don't see much bias in the poll.
hect says2015-06-04T01:41:02.9684525-05:00
@UtherPenguin: No it doesn't. Also what are you going to do have it reported and taken down?
blackkid says2015-06-04T16:30:55.0411708-05:00
This is indeed a loaded question. The quotation marks around right cause that.
hect says2015-06-04T17:19:06.1187784-05:00
I'd say the quotation marks are there because everyone has a different opinion on what 'right' is that's why they are there, and if they weren't we would have some clown say "define right"
Kreakin says2015-06-04T17:20:25.7668212-05:00
No voters are laughable with their bigotry. See why religion is becoming obsolete, it's full of opinionated control freaks.
Kreakin says2015-06-04T17:36:25.5584579-05:00
@Diqiucun_Cunmin - "we cannot trust people with cohabitation yet". Who cares what you and the royal we thinks.
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T17:41:20.6476309-05:00
@hect Have it reported? Sure, censorship is fun :)
hect says2015-06-04T17:42:54.3282290-05:00
Snitches without honour like you make my skin crawl
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T17:44:12.4904427-05:00
@hect *censoring intensifies*
hect says2015-06-04T17:46:59.6889508-05:00
You and your merry band of censoring cowards are everything wrong with this site
Kreakin says2015-06-04T17:48:29.1722716-05:00
It's not censorship to remove spam.
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T17:50:47.3079877-05:00
@hect If I actually become president, then I would censor this poll just for the lulz.
hect says2015-06-04T17:55:15.9634593-05:00
It's not spam I am worried about it is so much more. Polls that they (the merry band of censoring cowards) feel are 'biased' or 'offensive' are often reported and taken down, and I will not stand for it I have been waging war on petersmith for this exact reason
hect says2015-06-04T17:56:37.8579597-05:00
And I shall continue to do so until justice is served or I get banned myself
Kreakin says2015-06-04T17:57:14.8349081-05:00
Bye then :p
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T17:57:59.1756163-05:00
@hect Well I and my merry band of censoring cowards declare war on you too. But the war will be over before you could even say {Censored by the DDO Elite}
hect says2015-06-04T18:00:06.2379042-05:00
Ha you are not elite your debate win ration is 25.00% you don't even know which way's up
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:01:24.1245031-05:00
@hect My win ratio is so low because of forfeitures :\
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:02:31.5126317-05:00

DDO elite are the mods and president etc.
hect says2015-06-04T18:02:53.8935405-05:00
@Kreakin: you to are part of the problem. If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
hect says2015-06-04T18:03:33.4493077-05:00
I will not be a page in someone else's history book
Kreakin says2015-06-04T18:03:38.5067499-05:00
Nope, this biased poll is spam to me.
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:05:33.1406182-05:00
@hect Does that make me the oppressor :D
hect says2015-06-04T18:05:41.9386234-05:00
Take a lesson from yourself "it's full of opinionated control freaks"
hect says2015-06-04T18:06:23.3391656-05:00
Yes an oppressor of free speech
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:07:11.1192172-05:00
@hect Yay
Kreakin says2015-06-04T18:07:44.1014631-05:00
No free speech here friend, read the TOU. That war was fought and lost last year.
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:08:24.3897336-05:00
@Kreakin Looks like our work here is done.
hect says2015-06-04T18:08:38.9730704-05:00
You can be proud of this great tradition of intolerance
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:09:27.0873089-05:00
@hect It's a family tradition
hect says2015-06-04T18:13:39.1211730-05:00
@Kreakin: ah yes petersmith already mailed that to me, the war has only just begun!
Kreakin says2015-06-04T18:15:01.9084702-05:00
Ask Imabench why you won't get far with it and have a search of the forums. It caused uproar and lots of people left the site, many long term members.
hect says2015-06-04T18:18:38.7388620-05:00
Who is 'Imabench'. I don't go to the forum section much. Why did they leave?
Kreakin says2015-06-04T18:20:05.9095676-05:00
Because DDO bought in rules to say you can't call out the stupid etc. Search for The Weekly Stupid.
hect says2015-06-04T18:23:10.8967392-05:00
Ah I see, perhaps I should start it up again. @UtherPenguin you would be top of the list
UtherPenguin says2015-06-04T18:24:03.9062816-05:00
@hect I agree. (PS: Let's carry the argument onto this poll: http://www.debate.org/polls/should-biased-polls-be-allowed-on-ddo)
Kreakin says2015-06-04T18:24:48.9421569-05:00
@hect - That comments a breach of the ToU.
Stefy says2015-06-04T18:25:48.3856815-05:00
UtherPenguin: But hea just explaining what he means when he says cohabitation whats the big deal. It could mean a lit of things hea just clarifying what hea asking about...?
Diqiucun_Cunmin says2015-06-04T20:31:09.5638345-05:00
@Kreakin: We've had marriage for like 3000 years here. I know that's still short in the grand scheme of things, but marriage is an important cultural progression, and it should be embraced.
bbortega says2015-06-19T03:13:42.8185142-05:00
Just to be clear, the question was not meant to be biased. The reason the word right is in quotations is because what is considered the right thing is completely subjective and differs from each individual. Times have changed, just like some people are for or against same-sex marriage, some people are for/against cohabitation before marriage.
