Pagans and some other religions believe in marriage contracts that only last a few years. They are renewed like any other contract. Do you feel that marriages might be better off if they had a time period (say 7 years)?
People might be less likely to become complacent in their relationship and work towards keeping it healthy.
The seven year itch might give people a break before renewing their vows. Heck people might not get that itch if they know that the marriage has a lifespan.
People would less likely get divorce because it is costly and they might just want to wait it out.
So do you feel that marriages should be for life or be for a certain time span? And if so, how many years should it last?

If you really loved someone wouldn't you want to spend the rest of your life with that person? and if you really are not going to get a divorced and you want the whole world to know you trust this person with your life, wouldn't you get married with that person.
People who don't get married don't get super close. That's how I feel. Maybe it is because I'm a Christian.
But no, I don't think you should be able to sign a contract that is only for a certain amount of years for a marriage. Marriage should be forever. And you can renew your vows as much as you want, every day, every single minute to each other if you want. No one is stopping you. That's what I say.
And if you really think you want to stay with someone just so that you can leave him or her whenver without all the problems... then do you really even love that person? HELLO? I mean, there's a lot with marriage that ties you even closer together. You both grow together saying "you are my husband, you are my wife" and you both can now say "your family is mine, my family is yours" and you can both tell the world proudly that you have made it official. You can both say to your future kids (if you do plan to have them) that you are husband and wife and your kids are born into a family. Not just a guy and a girl sleeping together, but a real family.
Ok, that's all I'm going to say.0
