With all the talk of marriage equality, I often wonder what it would be like if divorce was banned. Think about it for a bit; how many lives are affected when people have a divorce? How many HR situations are caused by extramarital affairs, marital squabbles, and breakups of relationships?
If there were a ban on divorce, perhaps less people would get married; perhaps there would be less breakups and less children affected by divorce.
Marriage is often seen as the be all, end all of ideal relationships for people, but how many workplaces have been affected by matrimony? For example, someone gets married, and they have to move to a new destination to be with their spouse or family.
If people entered into marriage more seriously knowing that it truly was “forever”, how many people truly would get married?
Something to think about, for sure…
You’re an idiot. Why would you ban the end result of a problem instead of banning the problem to begin with? Marriage is such a trivialized thing in our society that you can go get it from a drive through in some states. Banning marriage would be a better solution, then you don’t need to worry about divorce. Puff pieces like this show how backwards we really are as a nation.
Thanks, I get told I am in idiot often so I appreciate the reinforcement!
I do like your idea of banning marriage altogether. It’s actually another
spin on this idea I plan on sharing at a later date because I don’t think people take it seriously enough to get into it. There almost should be a license required to get married that requires couples to pass some type of emotional intelligence exam,
The marriage concept is misunderstood by many. I’ve stayed out of getting married myself (probably because I am an idiot as you have so kindly pointed out) because when I do get married I feel it is supposed to be forever.
