When Gaia Morrissette decided to get married, it was to game the system. But she discovered that people didn't like it when she told them that. Instead, she slowly realized that everyone around her was a member of the Cult of Marriage! So she undertook a grand experiment: Getting married to see how the rest of the world would react. And the results have been stunning. From high-pitched squeals to lovers getting squeamish to finding that clients find her more "trustworthy," the experience of marriage has shown her that Western culture still clings to the way women were treated in the past. And that's not even to mention all the weirdness about "consummation"!
