  • - [producer] Yumi, you will be fighting for this motion

  • and Brian, you will be fighting against it.

  • Please pick up the card and read the motion together.

  • - Okay. - Okay.

  • - [producer] By default, Team Yes starts first.

  • So Yumi, you may begin.

  • - Yes, it's outdated. - No it's not!

  • - Yes it is.

  • Marriage was when women didn't earn enough money

  • to support themselves.

  • It's like we are trapped in a marriage.

  • That was an old, old system.

  • So it's outdated.

  • - Oh, it's a very fair point.

  • I'd like to argue against that point.

  • - Okay. - Because I think

  • the importance of marriage lies in its utility.

  • So for example, if I'm at a party,

  • I wanna go home and I tell people,

  • "Hey, my girlfriend wants me home by 12."

  • People would be like, (mocking) "Oh wow, your girlfriend

  • wants you to be home...

  • Oh you little-- you listen to your girlfriend?"

  • Something like that, right?

  • But if I say, "My wife wants me to be at home by 12."

  • The gravitas in the word "wife" itself,

  • validates the importance of marriage.

  • - Okay, so why don't you respect the girlfriend and the wife

  • at the same level?

  • - It's just a cultural thing, like a wife's order is-

  • you know, it's carved in stone, you have to follow.

  • - It's not fair.

  • - It's not fair?

  • - And marriage is coming from the place of fear.

  • - Fear? - Yes.

  • "What if I get older?"?

  • "Who's gonna take care of me?"

  • "Who's gonna pay the rent?"

  • Again, you are supposed to take care of yourself.

  • - Wow, I never thought of it that way.

  • As a married man,

  • - Congratulations.

  • - I never thought about losing value

  • because of my age, that is a tricky, tricky one.

  • But I think marriage is also important for other reasons.

  • For example, your relationships with family and friends.

  • So what other occasion could you gather

  • all your family and friends

  • and have them give you money and gifts?

  • It's like the biggest Christmas ever!

  • Well, you can get nice Christmas present

  • at a nice Christmas party. - Not me, not me,

  • no, no, no you have a nice family.

  • I can't get it unless I get married.

  • - So another thing against marriage is that,

  • you have to vow, you have to be together till death

  • do us part? - Till death do us part.

  • - Yes, yes, that's the word, that's too long.

  • - Oh, that's too long?

  • - Yes. - Okay.

  • - I think you have to renew--

  • - Renew the contract.

  • - It's like contract, five years.

  • - Five years?

  • - Sometimes, couples grow separate ways.

  • - Yes. - And then that's not,

  • nothing wrong about it. - Men usually grow

  • horizontally. (Yumi laughs)

  • A marriage is like the gym contract that you never use.

  • It's spending your money every year and you keep renewing it

  • for no good reason and you get fatter and fatter.

  • - Okay, I have to tell you,

  • very, very important thing. - Yes.

  • - Self-loving is the most important thing in the world.

  • - Oh my God...

  • - So emotional... - When you can love yourself,

  • so, so, so much love,

  • if you have so much love, then finally,

  • you can spread the love to the world,

  • to the society.

  • Sometimes, marriage makes you unhappy.

  • - Oh my God, this just went very emotional, very quick.

  • Yeah, I don't think I can defend marriage anymore.

  • I'm one month married and I'm not able to defend marriage.

  • Good times, world. - Yay!

  • - [producer] After careful deliberation,

  • the court has decided to rule that Yumi wins the case.

  • (clapping)

  • - Arigato. - I love your insight

  • on marriage, just one question.

  • - Yeah. - What do I do with this?

  • What do I do with this?

  • - Well, you can give it to me.

  • - No! - Give it to me.

  • - This is expensive. - Yes, well I'll pay.

  • Fine.
