Marriage Not Sacred Anymore
When marriage becomes a contract
I was reading an article yesterday that really made me wonder what is going on in our society. It pretty much said that marriage should be a contract and expire in two years and then if the parties feel they can't be together any longer they could just walk away with no drawn out legal battle.
I was really appalled by this because what is this saying to people? You don't have to be commited. You don't have to marry for the right reasons just try it and see if it works. I am sure all this stemmed from the Kardasian hoopla but this is how I feel about it:
I married my husband because I love him and we vowed it would be for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health meaning no matter what happens we will stay married. I believe society has lost their morals and values and what the true meaning of marriage is and the true meaning of love is. Yes people marry for different reasons but it should not be taken lightly and why should I have to decide in two years if I want to renew my marriage license.
I think people should really take a long hard look at themselves and try to realize that before deciding to get married they need to spend enough time with their partner that they know it is doable forever.
Has society become so hard core that now we must make a decision of having a contractural marriage and after the contract is up we then can walk away with no regrets, no feelings about the matter and just do it for the sake of doing it and then if I like you still after two years I will stay another two.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but this really angered me because I did not get married for the sake of assuming I would get divorced. I do realize that people change and situations change but I don't feel that people should have that option to opt out just because they married on a whim.

As a little girl, I could never understand why this woman who birthed me was called my mother. Her name was Ruth or so that's what everyone else called her.
Schools need to wise up and realize that abstinence is not working and start preaching what is SAFE SEX.
