Editor,

In his column published in the Journal tribune on Sept. 10, Dr. Joseph Horton states:

“The latest debate is about whether it should be that marriage produces better outcomes. The argument is that with the right government policies, any conceivable family structure could be at least as good as marriage.”

Later in the column he asks:

“Could government possibly regulate such that those who eschew relationship limits have equivalent outcomes with those who freely limit themselves to one spouse?”

I find it astonishing that ANYONE in America could possibly think or believe that this is the proper role of government.
