Your post makes it clear why it is better to have a functioning (?) democracy rather than a King.

The basis of your argument is that the government has a right to tell you what kind of a family you should be. Thru its tax code the government is carrying out social engineering - in essence telling you how you should live to save more money (on taxes). Buy a house, save money. Shack up instead of marriage, save money. Have kids, get a deduction. Etc.Etc....

Let the people decide how they want to live and spend their money.
