The slope is getting more slippery. A torn tent provides shelter, a sturdy brick home provides shelter. Which provides better shelter? Call any combination a you want a "marriage", the traditional one man, one woman marriage is still and will always be the best, just as a sturdy brick house provides better shelter than a torn tent.

Myself, I prefer stucco. With a nice wrap-around porch. (Holly Mullen)


  1. Even if a brick marriage (man/woman) is 'better' what does anyone care if two people choose to live in 'a torn tent?'

  2. Huh? I've lived in torn tents and brick houses, and No there is no "one" that is more suited than the other. That being said, call it what it is, not bricks, not stucco, not canvas, or polyester, no, its, well, you know, un-natural, pure and simple. Like the old saying goes, "People that live in torn tents shouldn't throw said tent at said brick house." And versa visa. Hmmmm?
    And No, tents do not have closets!
    (Or wrap around porches)
