mother-in-laws and marriage

November 15, 2006 12:59pm CST
I really think it should be more difficult to actually get married to someone. The divorce process is the most difficult and costly. Getting married should be the hard part as it would help those 'fence sitters' and hopefully prevent some of the heartbreak involved in divorces. I also believe it would give some new brides time to really get to know their future in-laws as this new family can sometimes make or break a new marriage. The old saying is true..."you can choose your friends..." What do you think?

I think people that get married have a reason to get married when they do. Maybe it doesn't always work out but no one said it would be easy. Divorce is becoming the norm today. It used to be a huge deal, now it isn't. I think people should really stop and think before they get married, I wish that the divorce rate were lower but I doubt that will ever happen. My daughter just came home from school yesterday and said everyones parents are getting divorced. I don't think I will ever have to worry about that and am glad my kids won't go through it. To many children are hurt in that process. As for in-laws, I think they should keep to themselves. I lived next door to mine for a while and they thought it was thier business to know mine. It is sad sometimes how in-laws can be. We moved out of state and I think that was best for our situation. We can live our own lives now. I love my husbands parents, and I know he also loves my family but it is better to just not be so close to them all the time. I am very close to my family just don't want to live near them. I'm rambling, I'll end it here! LOL!
