Senseless Marriages

People have all sorts of reasons why they think that the divorce rate is so high. Personally, I'm starting to think that the reason is simply frivolous marriages. My wife and a friend just worked together as ministers to marry another friend and her new love. They've known each other for a month. He only just got his divorce papers.

So it occurs to me that with many people taking marriage so casually and just being so darn impulsive, it's no wonder that there are so many failed marriages.

But then I also have to wonder, does it even matter? I mean who cares? What does a piece of paper mean anyway? If you love each other then you'll be together regardless. I dunno. I mean it's beautiful when it works, but I don't get why people are so obsessed over a piece of paper. It's the relationship that should matter. And these days, I'd think people would be smart enough to spend time together before they commit to anything legally binding. But then, getting a divorce is so easy maybe that doesn't even matter.

Who knows. Anywho, that's modern life I guess. Live silly and blame anyone but yourself for your own mistakes.

I hear you brotherman. The inability of people to take responsibility for their own actions is inexcusable but what are you gonna do? Watch the ads for "diet pills" You'll hear something like "overweight? It's not your fault"... AAARRRRRGGGHHH!!!!

What does being a "best man" actually mean in the ceremonial sense? Isn't there a similar position when engaging in a duel?
Considering your opinion of the union of these two, do you have any reservations/moral conflicts in assuming this role?
Certainly none of my business, I know. Just curious
