TED Talks Tackle "The History Of Marriage"

TED Ed's Alex Gendler has delivered the most wonderful Valentine imaginable: a succinct and entertaining summary of the history of marriage. 

So, National Organization for Marriage, which "traditional" marriage are you waging war against civil rights in the name of? Ghost marriages? Brother marriages? Or just a very specific kind of marriage that occurred in the U.S. between 1900 and 1990? 

Though, if Alex had hoped to keep the ignorant among us listening to the entire enlightening talk, maybe a different title than "The Evolution of Marriage" would've been beneficial. The viewers most in need of this history lesson are probably shutting the whole video down after the word "evolution" appears.
