Now we go to the next level. According to well known actress Helen Mirren boyfriends should not put their arms round the girls shoulder since it is a sign of ownership.

BTW I love that Bill Withers song, Somebdy To Lean On.

Wedding bands are a form of branding livestock.

The first gift men give women is a chain to go around their neck.

The first step in breaking livestock is training them to be lead, which men do in dancing.

Women are chattel, just like cattle and sheep, but no one would pay to have someone take their cow or sheep.

Ah the French, " A man without love is half a man, a woman without love is nothing."

nah; an arm around the shoulder is a sign of protection.
a sign of ownership would be a collar (with or without leash)

Nonsense. Both women and men wear wedding bands.

Dancing is an expression of romantic love.

Any healthy relationship is a give-and-take experience.

And one stupid quote means nothing. It should read that both are halved when they have no love.

Interesting, I think it would be weird if I was dating a guy and he never did that...I took it to be more a sign of affection. I think I will disregard what well known actress, Helen Mirren thinks about boyfriends putting their arm around the girls shoulders.
