What is the most objective institution in our society?
I would say the legal and judicial system, although it has many weaknesses.
Marriage is one of the least objective, in my view and lasts, on average 9 years in Australia.
Sport is a combination of both with subjective supporters and players with the benefit of agreed rules, an umpire and sometimes video and even electronic devices to objectively adjudicate.
What would happen if we could apply elements from our judicial and sporting systems to our marriage institution? Some might say we do in that the couple signs a marriage certificate or contract. But that only prescribes a start and finish but for the time in between there is little or no adjudicator.
My upcoming book, Object, proposes seven ways to be more objective, together.
