Hypocrite. What harm would a marriage of three consenting adult atheist men cause you Mikey?

If polygamy were legal it would still be so rare you'd probably never have to be offended by the sight of a happy poly family.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

You're kidding yourself to think that the force of law hasn't encouraged families to stay together and work things out far more often than the reverse. Why bother with legal marriage at all if a couple needs the state to begin with?
<quoted text>
Having the law behind the family, holding mothers/wives and fathers/husbands accountable, helps them and their children. Every family has ups and downs. The law should encourage families to stay together, absent abuse, neglect, or some other LEGITIMATE grounds, not to. Why do you wish to weaken the nuclear family?
I don’t, why do you?

I want to strengthen the nuclear family, and you do that by actually working on your relationship and your family, not by relying on laws to keep you together

You want the easy way, your wife forced to stay with you, regardless of how you treat one another, regardless of how unhappy and unhealthy it is for your children.

I want people to work on their relationships building strong families that don’t rely on the crutch of law to keep them together but actually work together to build a strong family for themselves and their children.

How does making it easy to walk away strengthen the family?

Why will people work harder to stay together if it's easier to walk away?

Cool! So why don't you love me then Jizzy?

You give advice on love yet you hate Mormons and are happy that they cannot marry according to the dictates of their faith. You are a hypocrite. You would deny people marriage equality based on their religion.

I don't hate gays and lesbians Jizzy. You think I do because you are stupid. I can't help you with that, as you are well aware you can't fix stupid.

You are a hater, not me. I fully support marriage equality. You do not.

I have already explained that, learn to read.

The difference is one of goals

They think they strengthen families by forcing miserable people to stay together in an unhealthy marriage, relying on the crutch of law to keep them together.

I think you strengthen a family by actively working on your relationship and build a stronger happier and more healthy family without being lazy and relying on the crutch of law.

I am for fewer laws, they are for more laws…. Go figure

I don't hate Mormons, I married one, my wife has been a Mormon all her life, her family all belongs to the Mormon Church.. Why do you hate LGBT? Its clear that you don't support the strugle for equality among the LGBT community. You show that each and every day when you disrespect the marriage of the Gays and Lesbians who post here. Why Frank, why??

So why bother keeping marriage legal at all then?

Quite the contrary, I don't want the "easy way", nor do I want the state, the issuer of the license, to make it easier, to reduce the reasons for marital break up, to the realm of trivial. In some states a married person could be charged with the crime of adultery, but end his/her marriage without fault?
I want people to work on their relationships building strong families that don’t rely on the crutch of law to keep them together but actually work together to build a strong family for themselves and their children.
As do I, so why take away state support? Why not have certain grounds for divorce? Explain why that is wrong?
Why do you want to weaken the nuclear family?
I would only if it agreed with your contention.

I can read. You have tried but you have not convinced anyone that making it easier to divorce leads to less divorce.
