Marriage ... a waste of time?

December 18, 2008 10:37pm CST
I guess I could insert the topic in this section of the forum. I just wanted to ask if anyone thought marriage was a waste of time? Do you believe in marriage? I haven't got a partner, but if I was lucky to get one, and we've been together for a few years, I wouldn't really want to marry them. Marriage to me is a peice of paper saying you are "officially" together. I don't need this to show someone I love them... If the fact that I've been with them for several years isn't proof of my commitment, then I don't know what is. If 2 people are together for the rest of their lives, I think this is wonderful but relationships fail all the time. If a couple breaks up for good, marriage stops them from moving on with their lives as they need to go through the divorce process. This brings me to another point... why get married if you end up getting divorce? Why make a promise if there is a chance you will have to break that promise? Why do people get married very early in their relationship, only to break up soon after? I am not a religious person, so maybe this explains my thinking.

well gohan,as you said marriage is a waste of time i really agree with you.according to me marriage is a occasion where the status of the bride and the groom is on display for ex you can take princess Diana and prince Charles wedding they had a very rich wedding but everything came to an end after few years.nowadays people get married only for money and not for true love,though i am married for the last 1 year i have found my marriage life very boring than before.marriage is one of the stages in your life.i was more happier before my marriage,hope the same thing should not happen to you my friend get married and be happy and all the very best.god bless you.

The remedy for love is snap out of it.
