seems like a rather outdated tradition to me . . . a cheapening of a man or woman's commitment to a relationship through the imposition a contract, enforced by the state. . .
That said, I'm also, admittedly, a rather cynical bastard, at times . . . as such I'd love to see what you guys/girls think!
Thanks in advance,

Well first of all I would think that marriage is something that the Bible talks about. Did you know that the United States has a lot of Christian values? Like the pledge says "under God" in it. Also most of the money in the United States say "In God we trust".
I think marriage is great for those who can handle it. it is a promise that two people make in front of God, their family and friends and themselves ofcourse. I am married. I never wanted to get married because I was scared of divorce but you know what? I felt super lonely and needed someone there with me. So I got married. Marriage to me, is a way to let the world know that we are committed. When we wear our rings on our ring finger on our left hand, we let others know that we value our love to each other enough to bind it with marriage. It's like we want to obey God but first being married then having sex and living together. Otherwise in the bible fornication is sin.
Now back to my first point, marriage is something upheld in the bible and through God. Now, I'm sure most people who read the bible would understand what marriage is through God's reasoning. others who do not know God will is for having marriage.0
