Neither woman featured in this month’s Up Close – Ruby Rose and septuagenarian supermodel Lauren Hutton – has had a smooth or predictable path, yet in hindsight, each tangent and mishap seems integral to who they are and why they’re celebrated. Rose’s story of becoming a poster person for empowered sexuality reminds us that while social norms inevitably inspire comparative self-appraisal, they have no a priori bearing on our individual validity – postal vote notwithstanding. In this context, we ask celebrant Dorothy Shorne how marriage has changed during her two decades of knot-tying and how she sees loving unions evolving in the future. In the vein of culturally-informed proclivities, three futurists discuss how they know what we want before we do. Prescience, coincidence or contagion effect?
