People have this view that once people get married they change, I have never got my head around that one...

Marriage was invented to lawfully procure land and titles through the male line.

There were many ceremonies in pagan and other beliefs prior to this that were often public ceremonies, proclaiming that certain men and women were partners.

Most of the land and titles, however, were inherited through the female lines. Marriage, in law, as we know it today was put in place for the subjection of females and to disinherit them.

Because it tied into various christian and other beliefs it was adopted by religions as it stands and is not tied in to the laws of most countries.

keep the economy going. Without marriage ther would be a higher rate of unemployment in this country.

#1...men go to work to get time away from nagging wives

#2...EMT's would be unemployed

#3...surgeons reattaching male body parts would be out of work

#4... Peace officers would be unemployed

#5...Divorce attorneys would suffer

#6...Judges, knowing they have to face their wives when they go home, wouldn't be needed. After all, it is their job to make men feel un-needed

#7...Process servers would be in the welfare lines.

#8...Hotels and motels wouldn't be needed for clandestine get togethers.

#9...Condom manufacturers would be emplying less people

#10..Preachers wouldn't have as many people to feel superior to

I hope you'll forgive me if I recuse myself from answering on the basis that it's too much akin to arguments of faith:

Those who believe in marriage will never quite be able to convince those who don't and vice-versa. Each person must decide for themselves and nothing anyone says will ever change that. handshake

Oh, but some do.

For the worse! They seem to adopt, quite suddenly, some sort of preconceived role of husband or wife, and suddenly, a closet full of parents' skeletons are revealed uh oh very mad devil


Only sometimes, of-courseangel

To me marriage is a private institution that two people enter into, private vows made between two to never cross lines outside of the stipulations promised to one another. You would have to believe in my God to understand this but this is as close as I can come to describing it. Hellowave

Marriage is just one more committment people get to break if they feel it does'nt agree with them.
