IMO i think pple today are taking marriage way to lightly. I am a very devout born again christian and i am against the prospect of divorce (except under extenuating circumstances like violence). The bible says that we can divorce but we shouldnt because we force ourselves and our ex SO into adultery if we marry again. I feel that pple today are taking marriage way too lightly. Its not often you get to see a long marriage like our grandparents had in todays relationships. What happened to valuing our SO and sticking by them through thick and thin? And what is the deal with a pre-nup. i feel that a pre-nup is just asking for a divorce.. Ok CM let me hear your opinions!

Stupid computer! It submitted my answer before I was finished. Talk about love / hate relationships!
Anyway, I was going to say that we will be celebrating our 23rd anniversary in 9 days. When we said till death do us part, we meant it!

I agree. I think divorce is to easy to obtain. I also think that the Victorian attitude towards sex is responsible for a lot of divorces. Young people are pressured into marriage (when they aren't ready for) because they want to have sex and have been taught that is is wrong outside of marriage, which it is not.
My husband and I are atheists, so we don't follow the teachings of the bible, however we do take our marriage and our vows very seriously. We

I believe in sticking with it through thick and thin, but sometimes when the love goes and the relationship turns sour it is best to go your separate ways.

I think alot of you are right. It's alot of different issues, not just one problem why our divorce rate is so high and some people get into & out of marriages like they buy cars sometimes. I don't believe that youngsters wanting to save themselves for marriage & hurry and get married so they can have sex though. If that were the case, we wouldn't have such a high teen /unwed preg rate here. They are not waiting, getting preg, getting married (some of the time) & finding that even that doesn't make it a fairy tale marriage. When they are 5yrs down the road, they are a little more grown up & are not same person they were. That's only part of the population though. Older people get divorced too. It's not just 1 problem, it's a whole array of issues. We just live in a "me" society pretty much & that out-weighs old fashioned values. Many people today think marriage vows are antiquated & may not say til death.
