Huh? Me? I have been happily married for decades.<quoted text>
You couldn't possibly be more wrong...although I understand why you think this way. It's sad. People who think that way just aren't together in a good marriage with someone they really really love, and would do anything for, and plan and want to spend the rest of their lives with. It's a wonderful thing, and it's unfortunate that you haven't experienced this. Maybe someday.
But I can smell the coffee. Marriage has changed 100% since I got married. It is truly now just a civil contract. You can still get married in a church if you want, but legally that is just bells and whistles now.
