In my life, I tend to follow a tradition of not following many traditions.
Doing things that were done in the past for no other reason than that they were done in the past doesn't sound like the best way to live in the present or move into the future.
In biblical times, a marriage could consist of one man having many wives and concubines, not just the two-member unit claimed falsely as "traditional" marriage today.
So, in actuality, since many spouses were allowed in the past, and today it's only two at a time, then we're not on a path towards polygamy at all, but rather we're heading away from it, such that soon all we'll see will be marriages consisting of one person.
(Which will certainly make it easier to find your soulmate, provided you've got a mirror.)
Unless we want to uphold the tradition of the past and return to an era of polygamy.
(Something to which most marriage "traditionalists" would probably object.)
Lying about the past, misrepresenting the present, trying to control the future...
If this is what tradition has to offer, I'm fine with whatever the opposite is.
