  2. I don't like it, but I'd rather a couple split up than ruin their kid's life.

    I wish people could maintain their relationships better so that it wouldn't be necessary.

  3. If you think you need a divorce then you are probably better off getting one, but it's stupid how many people rush into marriage only to realize they don't even like their spouse a few years down the road. I think that people should quit thinking that marriage is the be-all end-all in life and stop chasing it with anyone who'll agree.
    Or just not get married because if you're not religious then it's a senseless and wasteful tradition, but hey that's just my opinion...

    1. Lifelong monogamy is a trait of many species of animals, and ritual/tradition is a strong emotional aspect for human beings. I'm curious as to why you think marriage is a senseless and wasteful tradition. I agree a lot of people don't do it properly/put enough thought/etc., but I don't see why marriage itself is bad in any way at all.

    2. I'm all for monogamy but I feel that it's dishonest to both yourself and your spouse to claim that you'll love each other forever or be with each other forever. I don't believe that such a thing is possible, and that people who really do stay together and love each other for the entirety of their lives would find themselves drifting apart if the human lifespan were longer. To me it would be similar to holding a "friend wedding" and making vows to your friends to be best friends forever. It's a nice sentiment, but it would be ignorant to think that you'll always think the same of them, that neither of you will ever change in a way the other dislikes, that you'll never grow bored of each other... The whole concept of marriage just seems like wishful thinking to me.

    3. And wasteful because of the how our Western society has shaped what used to be a celebration of love for two people into a celebration of cakes, presents, material things and me me me. Corporations love the tradition of marriage because of how much useless stuff it lets them sell. All sorts of decorations are bought just to be used for one day. Not to mention the wastefulness of buying a thousand dollar dress to wear once. It is true though that not everyone buys into the notion that you need frivolous decor and expensive attire to get married.

    4. I'm pretty sure marriage from a legal point of view isn't a useless tradition. It's the religious definition that needs to go. The rights that come along with marriage such as insurance coverage, taxes, and visitation rights are much more important than your imaginary friend.

  4. I think it is grossly over used.

    My parents always said to me that marriage is forever. If you decide to get married, make sure both people are 100% committed and are willing to work through issues, no matter how difficult. Later, my parents went through a really hard time when my dad was arrested and proved their commitment and lessons they taught me and my siblings. Everyone kept asking my mom why she wasn't leaving him and she said because she loves him and he needs support during the weak moment in his life. 12 years later, they are happier than ever and worked through it all.

    Now, I do think divorce is necessary if abuse is involved, that is a 100000% legitimate and valid reason to leave a person.

    But I think "falling out of love" is a cop out. You were never really in love in the first place then. Or you are too lazy to work on the marriage. If we started taking marriage more seriously, crap like this wouldn't happen and we would have less split homes.

  6. The above posts are pretty ignorant and honestly offensive. Not everything is black and white.
