Below are the questions to be answered. Please use only the resources (links) provided below. Thank you.
1. Should marriages and families be structured by the political values of the wider society? In societies that value individual freedom
and equality, marriages will be based on the mutual consent and social equality of the partners. In societies that believe in natural hierarchies of authority (based on birth caste, gender, and age), as well as the subordination of the individual
to the collectivity, rights in marriage will depend on one’s gender and caste status, and children will defer to parents and other adults who will determine when and whom they can marry. Because it’s unlikely that all societies will come to adopt the same political values and practices, does it make sense to promote one ideal form of marriage for all humanity?
2. Should marriage be a path to citizenship for an American citizen’s alien spouse, children, siblings, or parents? Discuss the pros and cons of prioritizing family reunification in our immigration policies.
3. Should the terms of marriage be drawn up by each set of spouses (as with most private contracts), or should there be one standard package of rights and duties that is publicly negotiated and set by law? Explain and justify your answer.
