They enter into it voluntarily, like marriage. And yes, a great deal of those customs are predicated on tradition. Society needs it cultural norms and traditions. We're tribalistic creatures and to move from one tribe to another means some sacrifice. With people like you shitting on tradition it's no wonder most kids grow up fatherless and problems for society.

Those are careers, not a relationship with another human being. I'm amazed someone even has to explain this but it's not the same thing as a marriage, the comparison doesn't even make sense on a basic level. First you were on about rules which we disproved, now you're shifting the goalposts to traditions. Your poorly thought out vagueries manage to ignore that our societies are a melting pot of traditions these days and even "back in the day" traditions are not a set, static concept and meld themselves with time. The text in a name means little, both the law and society now reflect that. I notice you have no problem complaining about traditions you don't approve of either. It was once tradition for men to do a lot of dumb shit too but guess what? Times change.
