It’s never something any religion, belief-system or positive philosophy teaches, that of being judgemental, so whenever we explore certain topics on this blog, it’s more from a place of observation and seeking to help than from a place of judgement. So even though someone who might identify to be of a certain faith would be inclined to bash movements such as MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) and ladies who are self-proclaimed to be “for the streets,” it perhaps only makes for some constructive criticism in pointing out the advantages of a more traditional approach to these sorts of lifestyle choices.

The traditional family structure is definitely under threat and has been for a while now, so if there has to be a voice of reason coming from somewhere, it might as well come from here. There are suitable justifications for the mentioned lifestyle choices, but we just beg to offer a counter-argument to demonstrate to anyone who is navigating the perils of modern day life, that there are advantages to sticking to traditions.

..It would most likely be a case of re-visiting old traditions…

So what are the advantages of a traditional family structure?

Before we even get into that, it’s perhaps pertinent to define what a traditional family structure is. That definition has become somewhat dynamic, because who can argue with the positive effects of something like a gay couple seeking to adopt a child who would otherwise grow up in an orphanage, without parents?

So we’ll narrow our definition of a traditional family structure to encompass two parents and at least one child. Of course this would have to be within the confines of the law, i.e. same-sex marriages would have to be legally recognised in your country, otherwise it wouldn’t help to include that within the scope of the discussion.

Family benefits

The world as it exists today was shaped by influential people who firmly believed in the traditional family structure and so entire societies, institutions and markets radiated outwards from that. Simply put, traditional family structures get more benefits in pretty much all areas of life.

While the likes of online casino no deposit bonuses can essentially be taken advantage of by anyone, certain benefits are reserved exclusively for the traditional family structure. It’s pretty clear who can benefit from a family discount at a hotel, resort or any other place of accommodation, while out on holiday, isn’t it? Why do you think a solo traveller booking the same room as an entire family of at least two has to pay a higher rate and not even the same standard rate as a family, the latter of which will likely qualify for a further discount?

You’ve heard of family parking spots, haven’t you? At some restaurants, you’ve surely seen some hard-to-miss side notes about how kids under a certain age eat free, right?

Beyond all of those visible, finance-based benefits however, being part of a traditional family structure gives each individual a better-rounded view of how the world works.
