    In a perfect world yes that would be beautiful. The inperfect world deals with difficult people and sometimes it's to much!

    no. if things change or the marriage isn't right, they should move along. marriage shouldn't be about ownership or be considered forever due to the fact that people change and many times it isn't for the better. if your partner ends up beating you or cheating why should you be expected to stay in that marriage?

    It is not easy to decide what people should and shouldn't do, we are all different and should have a right to decide if 'marriage' is the right choice for us...at the end of the day it is just a piece of paper if our hearts are not fully in it...
    On the other hand, I strongly believe that people should marry and, stay married (except abusive relationship) when children are involved. Our children have a right to have both parents involved daily in their lives and most of all they need stability and love that only family is able to provide...

    If it were that simple, then yes.  But it isn't.  People change and in a good marriage they change together.  Unfortunately, that does not always happen.

    Yes because before getting married, people should find whether they truly love each other. However, no one is perfect and marriages fall apart. There are a lot of factors against love in the modern world and money is the biggest.
    The stress of jobs, cost of living and exposure to the world through the internet and media causes friction and people to stray from their relationships.

    People should try to work their problems out but if they are truly unhappy together, they should be apart or with someone else

    If you're miserable as heck in a dead end marriage, which you've tried to salvage with no response.. then stay. And continue to stagnate.
    This realllly makes sense, and its feels good, right??!
    People 'should' not have to do anything which means being untrue to themselves. It is this which is the true betrayal of the human spirit.

    For me, it's not really the "should marry" part that is hard but the "stay married".

    Marriage is suppose to be a special contract of permanent union between a man and a woman. It's not just a whim that one can discard when he does not want it anymore.

    But some factors contribute to why many marriages crumble these days. If these factors become too much for both parties to handle that they can no longer work them out, then, it would be healthier for both of them to part ways.

    yes i believe if you marry you should stay married, but saying to people "stay married" will never work, the only thing you could really say is "spend soem time making sure this is the one, instead of running into things you're not quite certain about". If people could sit back and evaluate the situation, then maybe there would be less devources.

    Most people will probably agree with you, if you don't insist on staying married to one person, I suppose!

    In principle, I believe the institution of marriage is one of intended permanence. Is there a basis to dissolve it? i suppose you can put the question in the same category with that of abortion.  There are many who believe that abortion is wrong in all aspects yet when questions on particulars, they stumble (i.e. rape, incest, etc.).  The same could hold true in marriage. Human beings are not perfect by any means and they do make mistakes...even in marriage.  They rush into it not realizing the level of committment and duration. We live in a society of immediate gratification, too many are not willing to wait for happiness for any length of time. I think we are a "throw away" society more so than we have ever been historically thus we are quick to end a marriage at the first pitfall and we are too easily tempted to violate that marriage without giving thought to the impact of our actions on everyone involved.  The intent is there but we lack the dedication to the institution as a society.

    I believe that the fundamental idea of marriage is a lifetime committment, "in sickness and in health, 'til death do us part," is the biggest evidence for this. It's a commitment that no matter what, you will never cheat on your significant other and will stay with them as long as they too are faithful. I think that sometimes, the definition of "love" in today's society tears marrages apart by giving the impression that it's a constant time of making you have certain feelings, whereas love is not just that alone. It is also knowing that, no matter the situation, you will stick by the person you love.

    Not if they aren't happy. Its sad to see couples stay married when they arent happy but "comfortable".
