SUMMARY OF THE BOOK
Chapter one introduces the subject by quoting verbatim the work of Liz Connor. This is to enable the reader to sufficiently capture the background leading to the write-up and discussion of the subject matter – that is, monogamy and indeed all over-structured marital arrangements rarely work. In this chapter, I set out to explain how I intend to use the instrument of logic to analyze and discuss issues arising from the subject matter.
In chapter two, the origin of the so-called organized family was discussed, and then went on to discuss types of marriage, that is from monogamous marital arrangement to varied forms of polygamous marital unions. The notion of informed consent within the framework marriage was discussed and the place human freewill in marital unions was also analyzed within that context. The chapter concludes that where marital unions are over-regulated, it is almost impossible to exercise freewill in the determination on the marital arrangement humans would wish to undertake. This state of affairs has created avoidable marital challenges.
In chapter three, efforts were made to highlight issues responsible for challenges in marital unions often translating into divorce. Reasons and grounds were discussed from Western, Christian, Islamic and African perspectives. I argued that the over-regulation of the marriage institution, whatever the brand, is primarily responsible for global marital failure.
The fourth chapter of the book sought for solution for our self invented and over- regulated marital unions. To achieve the goal I set out to achieve, it was important to explain why marriages as we know them today could not possibly hold happiness for parties in marital unions. And thus I conclude that, it was for that reason that sexual ignition would continue to elude parties in marital unions. It is the recognition of this sad fact that has resulted in all sorts of desperate solutions. I argued in this book why all those solutions cannot sufficiently restore sexual ignition in marital unions. Based on the short comings associated with those suggested solutions, I developed the OML option.
