"Sanctity of marriage..."

...my arse.

Just read the article.

'Course what do you expect of a culture where the phrase "starter marriage" is becoming more common?

Start the clock for some people to change their campaign messages. 'Course if they start saying they're gonna "fix" this "issue"...be afraid......be very afraid.

'Nuff said.

Interesting. Hey, I had a starter marriage. I think I fall into the got married "because they had been dating a long time and marriage was easier than breaking up" category.

Where do you think I first heard the phrase from?

While I don't endorse divorce I don't condemn it either. I do realize that sometimes it is the best option for the two people rather than years of unhappiness or even misery. I just think that while the phrase was meant to indicate certain elements not being in the marriage (long commitment, large finances, children, etc.) it is now serving to hack away even more at the concept that marriage is (ok WAS) a serious commitment.

I think it's OK for people to just live together if marriage seems like something they don't want, or need. However, many people seem to be buying into the idea that they "need" to get married. Then the next thing they know they're nothing more than a statistic.

Obviously this is one of those things I just don't get. Like women. Hah!
