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!
1 year for a start, then 3 years,... like a drivers license?. LOL
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.

Why people do marriages?

Why don't people in their 20s and 30s get married anymore?In the 70s, when I was in my twenties, men and women got married and, usually, wanted to have families. What has happened to change that?

Should the maridge contract just be a contract?its a "what if" style question,.. but would you get maried for a specified term, then the contract would need to be re-negotiated,.. or could be allowd to expire.

Do you believe there can be commitment without marriage?So many articles, hubs, and books are written offering advice to women in particular on ways to get their men to "commit". In some instances these are people who have been in (long-term monogamus relationships) for 5 or more years....

Do you think that marriage is really necessary?My parents got married because "it was the right thing to do" not because they were in love with each other. Now after a nasty deparation and 27 agonizing years, they are finally happy.

Do you believe commitment comes before marriage?Many people say "marriage is commitment" but I wonder how many folks would get married to someone whom they felt was not already committed to them! Very few people I imagine would give the "green light" for their boyfriend or...
