i just think marriage has become a trend, especially amongst 20 something year olds such as myself. mind you my parents have always been married, but my mom didn't actually marry my dad but whatever. over half of marriages end in divorce.
i figure to get married would be giving all the power to the woman. mind if you have a partner and your not married and your in a relationship with the person for 4 months half your crap is hers. I just don't see the point in marriage.
especially hard on the kids if there are kids involved. then the kids get used as weapons in custody battles, and whole loads of other bs. where I work I always get looks from married women.

I don't think marriage as an institution has failed, I just think lots of people marry too young and don't know sh*t about how to really make it work. They don't necessarily see it as as much of a commitment as it should be. That and as soon as they run into problems most couples will default to getting divorced instead of making a serious effort to work things out, which is why the divorce rate is so high. Personally, I don't plan on getting married until my mid-to-late 20s. Maybe even my 30s. I am going to wait until I am good and ready for it. Divorce is NOT going to be in my future, thank you very much.0
