Which do you prefer, a traditional or modern day marriage?
Marriages are not all the same. A traditional marriage is not always the happy one neither are most of modern day marriages. What is your choice of marriage?
I think I prefer a combination or blend of the two.
I find it attractive to be around empowered independent women who are also romantic, affectionate, and don't believe it's a weakness to desire a man. Marriage is more about (us & we) than (you & me)
There is no need to "compete" when you're own the same team.
I prefer a marriage where mutual love and respect and support are shown by both partners, each one for the other. I believe these are the cornerstones of any successful marriage no matter what label it is given.
billys1 you are so right and thank you for taking part here.
Thank you DDE for the undeserved praise, but thank you very much. I really do practice this in my daily life. Coming a person like yourself, very accomplished writer and a very insightful person also, I am taking this as a Supreme complement
Depends on your definition of each.
The idea that the quick hormonal rush you feel when meeting each other is enough to build a life on is wrong. So is the idea that your partner is supposed to meet ALL your needs, from sharing all hobbies to all emotional needs.
Traditional marriage has benefits of your family buying in and supporting your partner, since disagreements with in-laws cause many divorces. And relatives doing a thorough background check on the potential partner helps prevent someone falling for a fraud.
Another overlooked benefit of consensual arranged marriages - many social inept people could have relatives help them find partners instead of repeatedly failing at dating.
The ideal would be combining all of these aspects.
The one and only we know: a marriage of Mutual trust, honesty and integrity dominated by giving/receiving love.

Traditional marriage is bad. Listening to opponents of California prop 8 there is no other conclusion.
