    Do you believe that marriage is a lifelong commitment?

    Yes.  When people get married, they make a vow, "in sickness and in health, 'til death do us part".  That pretty much indicate that it is supposed to be a lifelong commitment.

    It has to be. 'Til death do us part doesn't mean until I get tired of you.  The thing is most people don't realize the significane of that comittment.  The guy typically thinks his work in the relationship is done.  In fact, you work on it every day for the rest of your life. You are comitted to winning your mate over again and again.  The woman typically thinks she can change anything she doesn't like about the guy.  So anything she has reservations about she beleives that she will change.  When you marry someone, you accept who they are.  no one (man or woman) has the right to ask anyone to change for them.  Saying "I Do" means "I Will".  "I Will" accept you as you are.  "I Will" win you over again and again.  "I Will"  make you remember why you fell in love with me.

    it seems that it has alwys been in the past, or at least was intended to be.... however these days i seems more of a "till impaientce and greener pastures do us part",....

    perhaps we should treet the maridge contract as any other contract and have a time limit at which it exprires and has to be renewd, with the possibility of renegotiations as well as to the terms,.... ??????

      Sounds like a sensible idea.  but how long should the contract be?  Ten years, 20?  Then at least the children are nearly grown up!

    Yes, I believe it is a lifelong commitment--and that is why it should be entered into very carefully with a lot of thought and planning.
