What Will Marriage Be Like In 100 Years?

Marriage isn't just about sex and babies. It is also about laughing together and communicating.

What Will Marriage Be Like In 100 Years?

Chinese are at it once again, releasing robot after robot. And each time the robots come with better and more advanced features. Do you think this might be a threat to the marriage institution? I mean, if I can have a decent conversation with an almost human-like robot and still command several services from it without it getting offended or exhausted, why should I struggle to cope with a fellow human being?

According to data collected in 2015, in the US, out of 2,140, 272 marriages there have been 813,862 divorces legally reported. One can only imagine how many are not reported. But this is not our subject matter today. Have you ever wondered where this institution called marriage is headed? Well, I did, and this is what I figured out.

House Chores Will No Longer Be a Common Interest for Married Couples

Technology is growing fast. By 2006, over 3.5 million robots were being used to handle domestic chores. These include; carpet vacuuming, washing floors, cooking (a good example is Rotimatic), and ironing (the famous Dressman).

Purchasing all these tiny robots is what might be holding humanity back from transitioning to robot controlled chores at the moment, but in a 100 years, there will be a solid robot that can handle all these tasks at once. If Alexa handles all your music and internet requests without a hustle, then believe me house chores will be a thing of the past.

Bedroom Affairs Will Change

And you thought Samantha (the sex doll) brought competition to the ladies, wait until you hear what’s in store. The sex toy market is no longer dealing with primitive sex toys. They’ve upped their game. Samantha, for example, loves kisses and she gets the seduction language. In fact, she talks back with every touch. In the next 100 years (maybe sooner), sex dolls will also seduce you. They will get “touchy” and down to business (think computerized blowjobs).

But before you roll your eyes, men are not the only target market; a male robot sex machine is coming soon, according to a rumor in the Chinese toy industry. I think in a 100 years from now, this male sex robot will be so advanced that women will enjoy breakfast in bed are all the romance that comes with it without being expected to return back the favor. That’s the beauty after all, right?

Scientific Baby Making Will Be The Norm

A major reason why we get married is to procreate. Every married couple desires to have kids either for the company or to inherit our hard built empires once we die. But career has already overshadowed many marriages such that couples are freezing their ovaries and sperms. As if that’s not all, they are looking for surrogate mothers to carry the pregnancy.

Health and other biological conditions have also contributed to this phenomenon. As a result, scientist work day in day out, to give us possible solutions to alternative procreation methods. The 21st century saw an increase in test tube babies. Couples can literally influence how their baby will turn out. If you want them sharper in class, science can solve that. In 100 years, we are looking at industrially manufactured babies from mere gene sequencing technology or maybe something bigger.

The Bottom Line

The marriage we know will not disappear, but the rules will be different. It might end up being more of a business-like and more contractual agreement. The need to love and being loved is normal in every human being. We want someone special to connect beyond our human body with. And as long as two people are capable of loving and understanding each other, they will want to commit and spend a lifetime together, regardless of how the state of marriage will be.

Marriage isn't just about sex and babies. It is also about laughing together and communicating. I mean some couples barely meet eye to eye, and they are still married. You might share a house and a checkbook but you are not necessarily friends. If marriage isn't a promise then what is the point of having vows?
