An interesting article.

Loosely related, and perhaps also of some interest.

I agree with Helen Croydon's opinion
Most accept that people have strengths and weaknesses. If you are not a good athlete or actor that is ok. But if you never marry that is unacceptable. The failure, misery and violence in so many marriages is great evidence that a lot of people suck at it and should never do it. Same idea is true with sex and romance
