Some people are unclear on what they want in relationships and the instinctual, biological, emotional, impulses within.
Muddled thinking fails to grasp the distinctions and leads to problems.
I have stumbled upon several related reports/discussions about institutional (traditional) marriage concepts this year (2014, that is only 2weeks old) and thought to myself this is worth sharing, the concept of alternatives to the institutional model of marriage…
My wish is for the reader to be aware and consciously clear with themselves what the choices are for their joyful life, rather than merely, unhappily, following tradition and someone else script (group think, peer pressure, social manipulation, and other forms of mind control).
You have a choice to Be the master of self and self govern, or not. ~Ron

Going Viral on WordPress.com: 26 Million Views and Counting — Seth’s Story
On November 2, 2013, Seth Smith hit publish on an article entitled Marriage Isn’t For You. Within a few hours, his self-hosted WordPress site couldn’t handle the tens of thousands of visitors reading the post. He moved his article and then his entire site over to WordPress.com, where the WordPress.com team did some additional tweaks to keep his site up and ready for the ten million visitors who would end up visiting his site in a single day. The article has since received 26 million total views. We talked to Seth about going viral on WordPress.com.
Q: Did you anticipate that your post would get that many readers?
A: Not at all! In my wildest dreams I thought that maybe, just maybe, that post would have received 3,000 to 5,000 views. To me, that would have been wonderful. So the fact that it’s had over 26 million views has been quite the shock!
Q: How did you first notice that it was getting attention?
A: Well, I noticed something was up when my brother-in-law posted it on Facebook. I thought to myself: Now that’s odd. I only published it a couple of hours ago and I haven’t even tried to promote it. Why is my brother-in-law posting it? Then I looked at the stats and started to see all of the traffic.
Q: Was there a single source of all the traffic?
Most of my traffic has come through Facebook — from users posting it on their profiles and telling their friends to read it. I’d like to apologize to all of the people that had to see my ugly mug so many times in their newsfeed. I can see that getting really annoying really fast.
Q: Would you have written the post any differently if you had known how many people would read it?
You know, I’m not sure. Most of the people that got offended by the article (or those who tried to twist it into a “controversial” piece), were those who dug too deeply and missed the mark. They mined for ulterior motives and “hidden” political or social statements. I can assure everyone that I had no hidden agenda. It was an article about a pivotal moment in my life, nothing more.
