David, would it be fair to describe you as a "conservative"?

Would it also be fair to describe one of the main parts of conservativism as a belief that traditional institutions and practices (like the monarchy) need to be defended against radical reforms?

If so I'd like to ask how many years must pass before an institution or practice can be deemed "traditional" and thus earn the support of conservatives?

I *assume* that your more than somewhat broad question refers in particular to the institution of marriage. As this practice has been almost universal since Mankind formed itself into societies I would suggest that it should be defended for at least as long.
