There are a lot of people that don't seem to TRULY understand what marriage is all about. If they do say they do, then they are lying or in denial. If you really think about it, the majority of people come from broken up marriages or relationships nowdays. Many people are only after the flesh, and that is NOT something true and pure marriage works with. People don't work out their problems like marriage requires. They make divorce a first resort, not a last. And for those who are wealthy, the marriage usually is a sham from the start because one of the two is greedy and only after that other person's money. Marriage certainly isn't what it used to be. Granted, there were bad marriages before. But not as bad as it is now. Everyone marries and divorces each other. It's like we are all married and one big "happy" rednecked/hillbillied family. Think about it. Do you really want to have sex with someone who had sex with one of your siblings or even your parents? I don't know about you, but I find that incredibly disgusting. Just because you are in a relationship with someone, doesn't mean that you should have sex with them. Most of society is full of crap, and if you don't realize or see that, then that's certainly a problem. Surely, most of that crap comes from certain douchebags that consider them "authority" - you know I'm talking about you. They are the ones that preach this nonsense. After all, look at all the reality TV shows about people sleeping with each other. They are trying to influence you to do the same so that they can brainwash you.
Both of my grandparents stayed married, maternal and paternal, (60+ years) until they died. They did not cheat on each other. My parents are still married and still going strong after 40+ years. They are very happy with themselves and with their family. They STILL have no means of slowing down. They are going all the way to the end zone together, and that's just awesome!!! I understand not everyone's parents are in the same boat. But maybe we can turn this around. After all, just because your parents drank alcohol doesn't mean you have to. Just because your parents did drugs or killed someone doesn't mean you have to. Sadly, some parents are not great role models. In fact, they aren't role models. But it's not too late. You can turn this around with your kids and grandkids. You still have your moral compass to guide you. If it's broken, find someone who can help you. I know in this sad world, trust is very, very hard to find. But until we turn this around, this world will continue to become more of a cesspool than anything else. We need to stop listening to crap, and start listening to common sense. This world seems to be suffering horribly with a drought of common sense. We need to renew that. We need to recycle that, so that we can clean up our world one day, one person, one issue at a time. We need to start treating each other with respect, and shut out those who are guiding us down the "dark alley of the world". We need to help each other so that life will improve for everyone.
