Dear 100 Hour Board (and particularly Concealocanth),
As a follow up to Board Question #67700, what custom/symbol would you implement in your new society to indicate marital status for men?
-Binary Search Tree
Dear Binary Search Tree,
Something about beards. Imagine the details yourself. Perhaps young men are obligated to look scruffy and unkissable until they get married.
Obviously, in my society men would dye a streak into their hair when they got married. The classy ones would go with just a bleached-out skunk streak, but the trendy young married men would dye in whatever color streak they felt like. Bald married men could get a tattooed streak on their head. Engaged or committed men could indicate their status with dyed spots.
Clearly, it's a good thing I'm not in charge of societal marriage symbols and/or personal grooming trends. But think about how easy to spot this'd be across a room!
