In most religions infidelity is grounds for divorce anyway is it not?
My point was, if you are not a monogamist, you shouldn't get married even if you have no religion.
Unless you have an agreement with your partner but I would not count on that, as I couldn't see it working long term but hey!, that's just me.
*If it's tradition, pressure, love, reckless abandon... none of them seem to be good enough to even get a tatoo!
Tradition and love are not good enough to get tattoos?
Thank goodness I ain't got none then :)
*If it's insurance, economics, sense of safety - all false, judging from divorce rates and lawyers raking it in.
People who marry in to money are laughing at this.
*If you think you're going to be a better person because you signed that paper - that hardly ever works. It's not the same thing like paying a lot of money for the gym will make you go more often.
It depends on how you view it and I do not see marriage remotely similar to joining a gym.
But only time will tell, so far so good :)
To me, marriage does not represent commitment - staying together whether you're married or not, does. Seems much more so when you're not married.
Okay, I think we can agree that marriage does not mean happily ever after but... there's always a but... it is an agreed on commitment. Whether it works or not is up to you but at least it is something.
