I mean checking out marriage stats, wouldn't you stay away from it? Or do you just like the marriage ceremony?...
-Marriages are kind of a false idea imposed by society once again.
-Stats also prove that arranged marriages last longer than so-called loved ones
-How many people realize how they have lied to God (I am not religious btw)? Said "I do" to "Do you, Mr Dan Druff, take Ms PippyLongStockings to be your lawfully wedded wife, and do you promise before these witnesses, to love her; to comfort her; honor and keep her in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto her so long as you both shall live?[...] Do you so promise?"
-Humans life expectancy is too high nowadays. Imagine living 60 years with the same old person? How the hell is that possible not to mention how ...unfulfilled and boring
- PS: As for myself, yes, I will probably get married (sadly I am what men refer to as "marriage" quality.. ), but at least 5 times. I will not marry for love though, I view marriage as a business partnership type contract, & keep my lovers aside.
I will be looking forward to your input/output ;)

So let me get this straight...first you say "Marriages are kind of a false idea imposed by society once again."
How long exactly do you imagine marriage has been in existance? Guess what? There was a time when there was no such thing as divorce. Once married only death or infidelity could break the covenant of marriage.
Stats prove? Tell me...what do you know about how those statistics were collected?
I could prove nobody has ever been divorced...if I went to an elementary school to see who has been divorced...the stats couldn't possibly be wrong...or perhaps from another country, in which case the laws and morality/beliefs are going to have a MAJOR role in making those arranged marriages last.
How do you live with the same person for 60 years? By remembering why you picked that person and putting their needs before your own...something you just don't get.
Tell me...what do you suppose all these lovers you are keeping around are going to do when you get too old for them? They can't stay long anyway as you would get bored with them.
The reason you will be married more than once is because you are stupid enough not to marry for love. Don't blame that on the institution...thats your decision.
I truly pity you. You lay blame on marriage, when in fact it's the fault of people making a mockery of it, that has tarnished those vows.
We live in a world where the first reaction all too many have is "Whats in it for me."
People get married before they have the slightest idea of who they really are.
We live in a world where bending the rules is a way of life.
America's moral compass lost its needle. 200 years ago Bill Clinton would have been dragged from his office and hung for what he did.
We live in a world where people can't even figure out what sex is. Let me clue you in...if it has ANYTHING to do with reproductive organs...IT'S SEX!
There is nothing wrong with the institution of marriage. There is something wrong with many of the people who get married.
Quit making excuses for how screwed up you are planning your life to be.
You are just another in a long line of people who intend to once again turn marriage into something it isn't.1
