What do you predict will be the state of marriage, if it continues to exist, 50 to 150 years from
I believe (most) people will always want to get married (at least once) in their life. It's an ingrained worldwide tradition. Many women view their wedding day as the one day out of their life that they will actually live the fairytale of being a princess!
Marriage equality or anti marriage discrimination laws will increase the number of weddings. Naturally the more weddings/marriages we have the more divorces we'll have as well.
A partylist group in the Philippines wants to introduce a law that would put a ten-year expiration date on marriage contracts. There have been suggestions by others who are open to the idea of 5 year renewal licenses.
This could be a double edged sword. People will either count down the days until they can get out of the marriage without much pain or it could be the impetus to motivate people to strive to keep their spouses happy if they want them to renew. One thing is for certain with renewal of licenses no one can take their spouse for granted.
At any rate I believe marriage is here to stay. :-)
As time goes on more and more people will opt of out marriage.
This is because more people will become more and more selfish and more lovers of themselves. More people will tend towards having open relationships rather than 'tying' themselves down to only one person.
The world economic situation is not likely to get any better which means more people will be 'forced' to abandon the idea of getting married at all simply because they cannot cope with the financial demands of having such relationships.
People will also find ways to pleasure themselves rather than hoping/depending that another person who is their partner will do that for them.
It doesn't get any better because as religious institutions crash and the world becomes more and more secular, people will become more open-minded and pursue their happiness outside the norms set or dictated by religious bodies. One man, one wife will be the first law to be struck out!
Therefore, the prospects in the coming 50 to 150 years is so so bleak!
Economics was one reason why people often got/stayed married in the past. Two paychecks were better than one. There were more stay at home moms. Higher pay for women gives them more options. They don't need marriage/men financially but will marry.
