Marriage as a hobby

I just responded to a discussion on bizarre marriages and afterward I was asked if I wanted to add marriage to my list of hobbies as this is where the section on the site to which the discussion was posted. Obviously this was a mistake as marriage is anything but a hobby but it made me think about how it could be seen as the digital equivalent of a freudian slip. Many people in modern times treat marriage as something that can be easily discarded through divorce if it doesn't work out rather than the serious prosepect that it is. Any way, it's just a thought I had...

I agree, I didn't marry one guy because he said "well, if it doesn't work out, we can always get a divorce" That is a sure fire way to fail at something isn't it. And, no, I've not married yet (and I'm 55.)

Good for you! I've never been married because I have only ever met one person I was willing to go there with and at the time he wasn't ready.

[i]That is really sad. In my Country,we don't have divorce and many people take time to decide but there are also who jump into marriage right away and found out later, they are not meant to each other.... ANyway, I hope even if divorce if legal here, I wish everyone especially young people will take time and enjoy their teens before deciding for this lifetime commitment which isn't a lifetime anymore this time![/i]

What do people do when they decide they have made a mistake or if they decide they just do not want to be married any longer?

I've had similar thoughts after responding to discussions not in my interests. It's all in the way it's worded and you're right. People take marriage to lightly these days.
