I believe the only way is the old way where there is a husband and a wife to care and nurture a child.
new practices are one of the many " new age" structures that is making this wonderful world coming to an end.
Hope civilization survives all that "progress" from the progressives...
what do you think of those tacky, gaudy, little phone-booth-sized wedding chapels with pink plastic cupids and red plastic ahearts all over the place in Las Vegas and Reno with recorded marriage vows in 439 languages, etc. Somehow those marriages which make a mockery of the holy estate of matrimony
Yeah, they're crap, but at least peeps are getting married in Sin City.
My particular 'pathology' goes even further than that. I don't think that governments should sanction marriage at all! It concerns the personal relationship choices and should not be a law. If one wants a financial contract, by all means, one should get one. That should not entitle you to any special priviledges, tax breaks, special treatment at Thanksgiving dinner...
Oh brother. It is in society's and a nation's best interest to encourage marriage. It adds stability and civility.
They show studies that married couples stay together longer than unmarried couples.
Yes. Science says so.
But aren't people that marry most likely more religious, conservative and more opposed to divorce to start with?
They show that married people are healthier than unmarried couples.
We call these the "good people". In contrast to the scumbags, criminals and dirtballs, the dregs of society whom we have already learned comprise most of the shack-up crowd.
Maybe the lack of prenuptial counselling explains why there are so many divorces in America.
I think if not mandated it should be promoted and encouraged more.
Men have awakened to the fact that marriage is a bad deal for them. They have seen their fathers, brothers, and male friends get shafted because of the unjust court systems which discriminate against men
Yep. there's all that working against marriage too. Again. gotta love all this "progress"... :s
