It's no wonder we have all these divorces. What with all the careless people jumping into marriage and not expecting to have to put forth effort on their side. Marriage is money, compromise, sex, emotions, caring for another human being and putting them before yourself most of the time.
I'm not against marriage, whether you're sixteen or eighty-three, I don't think people shouldn't get married. I just think they shouldn't go into it expecting it to be easy. Marriage is hard-core commitment, and should be, "til death do us part."
But I'm not saying there aren't exceptions for divorce. It just makes me sad to see all these people splitting up because they didn't take it seriously.
Call me a sucker but I like seeing people happy. I hate it when someone has to go through something as hard as divorce. It's hard to really prepare yourself for marriage, but I think some people don't really think things through before they take that big step.

I take my marriage very seriously.
> It's no wonder we have all these divorces
I never ventured into it just for a divorce. And if it ever happens I will never re-marry.
> Marriage is money, sex, compromise, sex, emotions, sex, caring for another human being and
I guess not everyone was ready for all that.
> "til death do us part."
Some say til divorce do us part, but I agree with you.

When my grandmother died by grandfather married another woman. It was disastrous.
Let's go through the family roster:
Jane* - Married twice. Still married.
Janet - Married twice. Still married
Cathy - Married twice. Still married
Jo - Married once. Still married
Cheryl - Married once. Still married
Stephanie - Married three times. Single.
Rick - Married once. Still married.
Pat - Married once. Still married.
Elaine - Married once. Single.
Mom & Dad - each married twice. Still married to each other
Not all my cousins married. Those who did are still married except the first one who got divorced.
I *think* he remarried. Apparently he stays further away from the family than I do.
I don't know how serious my relatives take or took marriage but it's just not built to last for some people.
* - all real names except "Mom" and "Dad" but you didn't hear it from me.
