bobbyi don't think i would choose the word institution, & i also don't think i would use the word under.
but furthermore, your black & white definition of two words is dry & pale compared to definition gathered from an existance of relationship.
i mean duh,
anybody can write two definitions with a comma seperating the two lines.
truth be told, your definitions can be held as negligence since the amount of detail is shallow.
when words cannot express the full emotional value entailed in the resolution of the definitive situation, life would & should seem dull or lite.
because the definition of institution itself shows the possible shallow opportunity that breaches into life to trim or hold weight dragging emotions down.
..this is the definition i enjoyed,
'a well-established and structured pattern of behavior or of relationships that is accepted as a fundamental part of a culture.'
simply because the wording says 'well-established'.. you miss the point of the word 'structured'
it has an S .. to further prove a point of problem, the next word is 'pattern'
it has a P
we all know structured patterns are something like gears, and we all know gears have teeth, so why is it difficult to realize those gears are locked into a 'pre-set'
because no floating is generally acceptable when using presets.
we see the words 'well established' and we think 'oh there is a long list of room to move about'
but the next two words..
the S is a maze
the P is Yahoo! for sticking the tongue out
yes, seriously, it can be viewed like a nightmare where people think they are going off into some secret carnival to enjoy a really rare experience (as if they were VIP) but when they get there, the S and the P kicks in as they realize their freedom is being shackled, causing them to question whether they are going to be murdered as they are being held hostage.
by your view,
in marriage, the persons cannot be 'attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard'
why? because the definitive has already been used to define friendship, and you can't use the definition twice expecting a difference.
but that is the problem with using labels to summarize resolution in the first place.
i see resolution as able to be definitive in & of itself.
you said it couldn't be done
I did it and did it well
stop whining and i hope your life never depends on words as you use them because it won't go well
