  • It is a promise to never leave for another person, to be with them always, unless they either 1) die, or 2) sexually unfaithful*.

    When you have this mentality, then you know you got to make things right. If you don't, then you must be resigned to live in misery. I've seen some OK with living in misery, and others diligent about making things right. But whether you do it happily or unhappily, you're staying.

    The term 'divorce', often thought of as the opposite of marriage (and for some people, it seems to be the only inevitability of it), is outside of the 2 stated reasons basically an act of untruthfulness. You've made a promise, and now you are going to break it. An oathbreaker. Hence, the divorcees of life are untrustworthy people if their own self-happiness is pitted against their promises. It is better to not vow, than to vow and break it, so those who are single and know they can only remain so have their own honor.

    * = forgiving and working past it remains an option, but I think only by choice.

    Legally, assets are merged and are passed to the children except where otherwise stated in any legally binding documents (such as a Living Will, Trust, Prenub, etc..).

  • a fun idea when you are young

    a nice idea when you get a bit older, and

    a silly notion when you reach adulthood

    a socially acceptable status joining between two adults who convince themselves they are in some sort of amorphic state of Love by wearing a ring or two and signing a license of some sort.

    It does make for a nice party though.

  • marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman. or sometimes one man and several women. or sometimes a man, woman, a giraffe, a lamp and a banana, but not necessarily within that order.
