We put marriage in a pedestal and get starry-eyed of the hope it will bring between man and woman. Man and woman have promised to commit to each other till death do they part. Yet, we know for a fact that these commitments are never met because of the constant cheating occurring in countless places and times. If God is as loving and omnicient as we were taught, then God would nod to a marriage between people who strongly believe to commit their lives for the good of one another and society. After all, marriage the underlying meaning to a marriage is unconditional love.
I defintitely agree with this but also wanted to say not everyone seeks God in approval for their marriage, sometimes they assume that they know who their husband or wife is because that is what they want. Most times Gods gives us signs and we ignore them.

I merely mentioned God because the ultra-conservative, uptight bible-obsessed people who defends the virtues of marriage in an antiquated principle. The world itself is evolving and getting more complex, there are beliefs that do not serve the 21st century anymore, so, like, so many things, we have to adjust.
