Why Bother?

The question arose in my previous post Determination why my friend was not getting married anymore. I started to think about why some people get married in the first place. I have 2 other friends who are supposed to be getting married in September and I do not know why they are even bothering. They fight all the time, complain about each other, and have no sex life. I think with them it is a marriage of convienience. He has help with the rent and she does not have to live with her parents. If that is the case, Why Bother? There is no love or compassion. What kind of life is that?

For me, marriage is something that should be sacred. I know for some it does not work out as planned, but I think that you should at least love the person at the time of the marriage. It bothers me that people get married for the sake of something as small as rent. Maybe I am not seeing the larger picture here.

Am I stupid in thinking this way?

I agree completely with you...too many people today devalue marriage and what it stands for these days.

I am getting my degree in child and family development and I think way too many people enter marriage without thinking or for the wrong reasons....and divorce way to easily...like throwing away an old pair of shoes that don't fit any more...guess in our society today, so many things are disposable, including our marriges.

You are not stupid to think that way. A lot of people are getting married for the wrong reasons these days. That's why most marriages end up with a divorce. Well sometimes love will fade too. Not everybody is as lucky as some couples out there who share undying and unconditional love.

Becky- You are right. Divorce does come too easily.

Sassy- If the love fades, I say that's ok. At least they enter the marriage in love.

MrRite- That vid was pretty nasty. It was my pleasure posting on your blog.

Harleys- We sure are from different planets! The book stunk in my opinion. It tells you how different men and women are and how to meet each others emotional needs. But if only one person out of a couple reads the book, it doesn't work.
