What is your personal definition of marriage?


In some cultures, prearranged marriages are normal. My husband's sister and her husband only knew each other for one week. Now they have eight children and have done fine. Does love have to be part of marriage?

    Sounds great - except there are no perfect people. It also doesn't explain why nondenominational Christians have the highest divorce rates, while atheists have the lowest.

    Exactly the answer I would have given to this question. It's a legal agreement between people. It used to function as a genetic pool for breeding, but we don't need that anymore.

    Are you saying people of other faiths or those who practice no religion, their marriages aren't legitimate? Should people who can't have children or don't desire to have them not get married? What about seniors who want to marry?
