ALSO....

Not getting married is not new. All of us have more than one relative that was in a longterm committed relationship. And you thought they were married until something hapened to one of them. Why all the concern now?

Anyone who co-habits for seven years or more is legally married under English law upon which American law is based. That non-sense you are talking is nothing but an attempt to rationalize insanity and social pathology. We have had enough of this. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Maybe this can be considered a "probationary period" to see if you are really meant for each other? Just a thought.

Not really. I know where one can get an uncontested divorce for $300. From start to finish it takes 2 weeks. I know of another chick who divorced her husband with a signature from him and she did all the paperwork herself.

The ease in and out is not the issue. The issue is the lack of commitment. and I don't see why a piece of goverment issued paper makes one relationship better than the other.


Peace





Many dont have the $300, in this economy. But as I said, there are still forms to fill out. lol

The real commentary is that people view marriage that lightly. I know today, you cant get married in a church unless you go through a formal vetting ( pre marriage counseling ) process.

Peace,

You are uninformed and misguided. You think common-law marriages mean something in all 52 states? You'll be lucky to find a handful of states that even acknowledge them any more. Good try though. So basically if one ain't religious they're now insane and social pathologies? Are you the religious poster person or something?

I'll ask you the same question I asked the other person who didn't answer. What non-religious benefits are there to getting married?

Peace
