I know women who would disagree. Women's wages still don't match men's, and women are still hugely underrepresented in some professions like the sciences.

I say women would be especially pressured because I think they are less likely to dissatisfied with monogamy. If it became the norm to not be sexually monogamous in a marriage, there would be less women in ratio to men who would be happy about this.
So that would give them the power to bargain for more congenial terms. I don't see where the pressure comes in.

No registry needed; punditing is sufficient. Popular entertainment, news, marketing, media probably influence the norm more then anything for most people. I think the church, and tradition, which used to do this, is not very influential in relation to those anymore.
Right, opiners will opine and the people will decide in the free market of ideas. As far as that goes I think Ross has already lost.
