More than ever! But I suppose it matters how you define the purposes, cultural meanings, benefits, reasons, etc. When you say 'institution', it takes in a large interpretation from the legal to the religious to the spiritual to societal.
If people would quit looking for their lust mate and look for their soul mate, it would be more relevant. I am very much married and have been for 26 years. I know quite a few others that feel the same way. Marriage should not be looked at from the point of view of 'If it doesn't work, we can just get divorced'. It should be looked at from the point of view of 'I cannot live without this person in my life forever'. A soul connection is the only way to have a true marriage and those cannot be made with divorce in mind.
