It seems likely that the reason that men and women get together is for only a couple of reasons.

  1. Necessity of navigating the physical environment. For most of human history, surviving as a one man or woman army was impossible. However, the riches of the modern era have eliminated marriage of necessity. We have robot vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, all the food we could ever want. No one needs personal connections to ensure their own survival, simply being a tax paying citizen is enough.
  2. "Love." I won't deny and say love doesn't exist. The problem is that it's based on the delusion of the halo effect. When people fall in love, they have a grandiose sense of their partner's worth. However, thanks to TikTok, Instagram, and OLD, I think most people should be disillusioned at this point to understand women aren't magical unicorns. This kind of removes the basis of love. Mother Teresa was probably a significantly better person than your partner but thanks to the halo effect, most people would say otherwise or make up some excuse. Is this effect not gone yet from the internet? The halo effect isn't anything special, just your brain tricking you into loving someone because of their face.
  3. Sex/reproduction. Arguably, this is all that's left. But sex can be acquired or replaced in other ways such as porn, hookers, and soon AI. Reproduction is a little harder so I will leave this as the only remaining artifact.

Since we have no necessity and can conclude that romantic love isn't sacred. Why not replace the last remaining utility with porn/AI/hookers?
