Anthropological Aspects of the West:
In the section The Personal Relationship and the Private Contract, it was shown that older Western anthropological history reveals there was a time when the State was limited in and/or not directly involved in governing the personal relationship.
Recall that the State represents the Electorate. Recall that the Electorate consists of families and entities within SCECS. Ultimately families and entities within SCECS and their representation as the Electorate work through the State, functioning as a controlling, governing third-party of the SCECS Accepted Marriage.
That is how the State comes to define, develop, and provide its understanding to the SCECS Accepted Marriage and has the ability to assign accountabilities and responsibilities to the participants in the SCECS Accepted Marriage.
However, since there was a time that the State did not involve itself in the personal relationship, then it seems reasonable and it follows that it is not necessary for me to get the State involved in my personal relationship.
In the section SCECS Accepted Marriage, Divorce, and the Private Contract, it was shown that Modern Western anthropological history reveals that it is possible to limit and/or remove the State from settling a divorce of the SCECS Accepted Marriage.
Since it is legally possible for me to use the Prenuptial Agreement or the Marital Settlement Agreement to limit and/or remove the State from settling the divorce of my SCECS Accepted Marriage, then it seems reasonable and it follows that it is not necessary for me to get the State involved in my personal relationship in the first place.
Interestingly and somewhat poignantly, in Modern Western anthropological history it becomes observable that many drink goblets of elixir to singleness.
From my research, I surmise that observation about singleness has become a recent phenomenon because many have found that “marriage” is not a panacea.
I also surmise that sologamy is the natural result of two things in Western culture. One, the navigation away from the Private Contract. Two, the continual romanticism of the personal relationship.
That means Western culture has come to see “marriage” as a romantic remedy instead of what it is – a personal relationship governed by a Private Contract of mutual reciprocity.
Consider recent Modern Western anthropological history. The male is being encouraged to obtain either vocal or written permission, especially from the female, for sexual contact.
For example, legally, if she agrees to sexual intimacy with him as long as a condom is used, and a condom is used during their sexual intimacy but then he removes that condom without her consent, the female can accuse the male not just a breach of contract but rape, and one court has found in her favor.
Since this is occurring, then what better way is there for each individual, whether female or male, to protect and improve their personal self-interests than enumerating specificities in a Private Contract with another individual.
With a view of Western anthropological history, and a view of Modern Western anthropological history, and with a view of the current social-political environment within the United States, and with a view of the recent court decision about condom removal, it therefore becomes evident that the Private Contract provides possibilities.
Especially when written, the Private Contract provides possibilities, because each individual in the Private Contract can provide clarifications about definitions, developments, understandings, accountabilities, and/or responsibilities, because the Private Contract provides an opportunity for each individual to specify how they will contractually relate to the other enumerated individual(s) within the Private Contract, agreeing that the Private Contract they entered into governs their personal relationship.

 A view of Western anthropological history: having the ability to directly define, develop, and understand one’s own Private Contract.
 A view of Modern Western anthropological history: having the ability to directly define, develop, and understand one’s own Prenuptial Agreement or Marital Settlement Agreement for the SCECS Accepted Marriage.
 The current social-political environment within the United States: the State represents the expectations of the electorate, and that the electorate consists of families and entities within SCECS, and that families and entities within SCECS have defined, developed, and determined their understanding of the SCECS Accepted Marriage, and that families and entities within SCECS have a seemingly endless argument and debate about the SCECS Accepted Marriage.
