Many medical issues make it extremely difficult for
establishing and maintaining relationships. Although these illnesses are so many and so
diverse, they are quite equal opportunity illnesses. Both married and unmarried are
Furthermore, many of these are undiagnosed and untreated.
Discriminating against the single person, both healthy and ill, maliciously endangers
their health by subjecting them to unwarranted and unethical obstacles. Since single
citizens almost always receive lower compensation, it is very obvious that they have
significantly less money than their married counterparts to channel toward health factors
such as social networks.
The 1995 book, Relationships in Chronic Illness and
Disability, clearly clarifies the benefits derived from having healthy social networks.
Even though the small book could not possibly cover all possible medical issues, the
authors and contributors; Renee F. Lyons, Michael J. L. Sullivan, and Paul G. Ritvo with
Jams C. Coyne provided more than significant representative sampling establishing the
requirement of healthy social networks. Being married is absolutely not the only way to go
through life having healthy social networks!
Unjustified lower status and unjustified lower compensation
find the pairing impaired with lower chances of developing and maintaining healthy social
networks. Overwhelming evidence has found that not having a healthy social network is
detrimental to ones health. Ultimately, this results in overall higher human and
Whats the answer? When in doubt, read the instructions!
The prevailing married master-race policies reek of a
"holier than thou" mentality directly defying the intent of the Bible,
Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Gettysburg Address. Our "melting
pot" does not melt our society anymore into a warm community of camaraderie.
The "melting pot" so many times attributed as a
mixture melted into a harmonious community of America, has long since cooled to melt no
longer. Instead of warmth, a disrespectful cold attitude towards others and a disregardful
cold attitude towards documents supposed to guide us in the pursuit of happiness has
frozen the fundamental concept of equality.
The most heinous aspect is the overall treatment of the
single citizens dealing with medical issues. If there cannot be parity for the pairing
impaired, I shudder to think of what may be next.
Unfortunately, I do know what is going to be next.
The murder of social networks through so many different ways
is murdering our society. This is part of a domino effect with elements of our social
capital falling like dominoes. By continually discouraging the growth and maintenance of
social capital, we allow societal fragmentation through continuing discrimination and
increased polarization of the different elements.
Like the domino effect that was attributed to small countries
endangered by communism, parity for the pairing impaired is only one of the many dominoes
that must not fall! It is absolutely necessary for us to reestablish the pursuit of what
we once strived for far too long ago -- an "American Dream" which was a good
example for the rest of the world.
Each and every American domino needs to be standing tall and
