Marriage between a man and woman has taken a backseat to the constitutional and commercial desires of politicians and businesses. Politicians believe that marriage can permeate into differing combinations that will enhance the overall community. They believe that individual constitutional rights are more important than the moral fiber. Businesses need to profit from other marriage variables in order to increase revenue for future possibilities otherwise other forms of government will dominate. Marriage between a man and woman is the backbone to future survival of our community and our world.
While the debate continues to rage, no on can argue the role that nature has played and continues to play in the proper relationships which reveal why marriage between a man and woman is important. Scientists have recently estimated that there are approximately 8.7 million species on Earth. They believe that 1-2 million of those species are animals. Out of 1-2 million animals, there are only six animals that reproduce asexually.
First, Marmorkrebs accomplish asexual reproduction via apomixis, a process usually reserved for plants in which an organism can generate an embryo without fertilization. The marmorkreb, whose name means “marbled crab” in German, is an invasive species who has set up populations in three countries while greatly upsetting native wildlife. As a result, in 2011, Missouri added marmorkrebs to its prohibited species list.
Secondly, another animal that reproduces asexually is the Whiptail Lizard. Unlike many other species the Whiptail Lizard has no choice but to reproduce asexually. The Whiptail Lizard belongs exclusively to the girls-only club. This celibate, all-female species begins the reproductive process with twice the number of chromosomes as its sexually reproducing relatives. Whiptails evolved from hybrids of other species and may possess two complete sets of chromosomes. The lifespan of the whiptail lizard is 3.2 years.
Thirdly, the Komodo Dragon reproduces asexually. Female Komodos have a singular ability to lay eggs without having had sex, and these eggs will produce healthy male children. This occurs because female Komodos have two different sex chromosomes that multiply on their own in the eggs. Komodos have really, really bad dental hygiene, to the point that they’re poisonous. Scientists have identified some 50 different bacterial strains, at least seven of which are highly toxic, in their saliva. If the komodo’s bite doesn’t kill you, its deadly drool likely will.
Fourthly, Captive Sharks reproduce asexually. In Florida, female hammerheads captured as pups were kept away from males and reproduced asexually. Captive Sharks rarely reproduce asexually. In 1978, SeaWorld reportedly attempted to display a couple of wild-caught shortfin mako sharks at its Shark Encounter Exhibit. The animals reportedly died within days, after running into the walls of the enclosure. Recently, a great white shark died after just three days in a Japanese aquarium. These incidents aren’t isolated: Sharks don’t thrive in tanks
Fifthly, another animal that can reproduce asexually is the Ageless Hydra. Hydras can opt to reproduce sexually or asexually. When food is plentiful, hydras reproduce on their own; but when food becomes scarce, they mate with sexual partners to generate more diversity in the species. The Hydra shows no signs of aging which indicates that the animal has very little physical progression through its life.
Finally, Cloning Wasps reproduce asexually. When certain species become infected with Wolbachia bacteria, the chromosomes in wasp eggs change. As a result, the eggs do not divide, and instead of creating unique offspring, mother wasps create female clones of themselves. While it sounds like a neat survival trick, the wasps are only buying time. Eventually the bacteria create only female clones who are infected therefore resulting in the death of the wasp colony.
We can surmise that animals that reproduce asexually exhibit characteristics that result in a limited life span, detrimental physical characteristics, or the appearance of limited growth. Nature proves that any other combination than a marriage between a man and a woman is detrimental to men, women, children, and the community at large.
