Catholicism: A good way to stay monogamous

I was raised on Catholicism. But life taught me that Catholicism, if not all religions, is simply a tool used for two things: one, to keep the ignorant from causing chaos in society, and two, to give comfort to those who fear the unknown after death.

But is that such a bad thing? I would not consider myself a strong believer in Catholicism, but one Catholic rule that I strongly believe in and think should be nurtured in children, is the belief in monogamy.

Monogamy is a big demand in Catholicism. More than 50% of marriages end up in divorce in the United States because monogamy is not nurtured enough in families. Catholicism promotes monogamy, and monogamy promotes the idea of love, the idea of love in turn creates partner appreciation, which in turn creates happy marriages and less divorces.

At the moment I don’t think many couples in the U.S. get married because of love. From what I have seen in Boca alone, marriages are all about the money, physical appearance and/or race. Many people feel that it is more important to feel safe and secure, both financially and physically, instead of feeling secure mentally and/or emotionally.

Unfortunately, staying a virgin before marriage, in my opinion, is pushing it. But to have sex with another person with whom you are in a committed relationship; now that is possible and should be promoted in our society through the use of Catholicism.

Now many of you might think this is impossible, but if you do your research, you’ll realize that in many countries where Catholicism beliefs are strongly nurtured in children and society in general, there are less divorces and cheating individuals.

Now I am not saying Catholicism is perfect, but then again no religion should be considered perfect. I don’t agree with everything the Catholic religion has to say. Homosexuality is not a disease. There are times when killing is necessary, and women should be treated as equals and not as the origin of sin.

But when it comes to nurturing the idea that you should only sleep with the person you are in a committed relationship with, Catholicism serves a good tool of education.
