Debate Night: Marriage
Marriage is one of the oldest institutions of human bonding in the world, and has been considered a cornerstone of the family and of society in all kinds of places and eras. It remains a main goal of many modern people as well, and is often portrayed as the pinnacle of romance. However, the reality of marriage is much more complex. Easily half of them end in divorce, and many more stay together but are unhappy. There s a lot of questions to be raised about marriage, and whether we should perhaps look at it in a different light.
Eager to share your point of view, or to listen to the insights of your fellow debaters? Come join us on the 8th of December for an evening of debate, merriment and great company!
This debate will take place in our usual format. This means that the specific motion will be shared few minutes before the debate, after which people can volunteer to participate. After making two random teams (which means you will not choose your team and what you will in argue in favour of), and 15 minutes of preparation time, the proposition and the opposition teams will be able to debate with a speaking time of 6 minutes per speaker.
If you are new to debating, take a look at this one pager explaining the format and roles:
