Should we do away with the concept of marriage all together?
No. Marriage is already a choice and one does not have to choose marriage. But when it is good--it is wonderful. 42 years and counting.
No, leave it up to people to make up their own minds whether or not they wish to have the ceremony.
Marriage is as good as you make it. Let's just not try to redefine it into something it has never been.
The alternative being camps of genetically mutated and bio-engineered humans?
No, my husband and I have been together for 26 years and still going strong. Maybe we should just have classes n how to have a real marriage, instead of what people think marriage is now. Giving up, cheating, marrying for the wrong reasons are not how to have a real marriage. A real one is spirtual and loving. We are connected in thoughts and minds as well as at the hip.
No, I don't think that would be a good idea. The concept that two loving people want to make a long term commitment to each other is a good thing. It just shouldn't be limited because of some people's fear.
I don't think it will helpful to jettison the concept of marriage because of its current controversy. Marriage is a critical long time societal value and norms. The norm and practice that defies color, religion, race and beliefs. Marriage is a concept that should be encouraged and protected because it, among other factors, ensures the continuity of humanity
Marriage for me is a way not a necessity but it is scared. You have to be prepared at all cost and stays their forever. It is not something try-first and byebye-later. It is a life time responsibility.
NO! It is the basis for our values and belief systems. People have been getting married since the beginning of time.
The option of marriage will always be an available personal choice just as religion will always exist. Traditions, such as marriage, will continue to be handed down through families, and cultural and religious influences through upbringing. Although marriage is predominantly entered into for spiritual reasons, there are practical, economic factors that play a part in the decision to marry.
The term "gold-digger" relates to the concept of marrying for money. Prenuptual agreements have become part of the documentation associated with marriage when one partner holds considerable wealth. Combining two incomes allows couples greater shared assets and a better standard of living than as a single person. Marriage provides for greater security when raising a family.
Economically, weddings promote cash flow and commerce. Traditional weddings are extremely expensive, from the invitations, gown, flowers, cake, gifts, entertainment venue and honeymoon. Marriage is good for the economy.
If the marriage doesn't survive, and one out of two do not, the financial costs in lawyer fees further benefits the economy. Generally, divorce involves establishing at least one new household.
As in all areas of personal choice, marriage should and will remain an available option.
