Friedrich Nietzsche


“[M]arriage, as we have said, cannot be founded on “love”–it is founded on sexual impulse, on the impulse to possess property (woman and child as property), on the impulse to rule , which constantly organizes for itself the smallest type of sovereignty (family), which needs children and heirs to maintain physiologically an acquired measure of power, influences and riches . . .”


–Friedrich Nietzsche, The Twilight of the Idols
