Modern Utopia considers it humane to prevent the birth of those who would suffer and fail
Reproduction is restricted to those who have shown merit and responsibility and are free of transmissible diseases and criminal tendencies
If those who do not qualify have children the State will seize the child and the couple will be responsible for all expenses in raising the child ( or children) but without any rights of custody. If you impregnate a second time or you have passed on possible diseases or imbecility steps will be taken to ensure you and your partner never reproduce again.
The State pays the mother a wage to help raise her children and makes motherhood a profession and forbids individuals from employing married women or mothers with children.
Childbearing and rearing of children is no longer an individual concern but becomes a community concern.
It is the duty of the State to secure good births and good conditions and ensure that marriage should not be taken lightly because all the community has an interest in raising healthy and productive citizens.
Women must be at least 21 and men at least 26 or 27 before marriage is permitted.
Those who communicate their desire to marry must undergo mandatory background and genetic testing.
A child is viewed by the State as the future of the species and the State becomes involved as the guardian of interests beyond the individual family.
If a wife is unfaithful and produces a child that is not her husband's the marriage is terminated.
A childless marriage expires after so many years allowing the wife and husband to find another mate.
Group marriage or polygamy is allowed as long as they produce offspring and pass all the prerequisite tests. Couplings just for the sake of sex and promiscutity without children are forbidden.
