A year and a day.

When I was married, I would often dream of a place where marriage certificates came with an expiration date.
I had it all worked out too. It would be like drivers license, if both parties didn't sign the renewal, it would just cease to be.
Every so often, in order to keep it current, both would be required to go seperately for a personal counciling session, therefore reducing the pressure of one on the other.
After a certain number of years of consent it would then become a permanent bond requiring a divorce to break.
Ahh, well. Maybe someday.

I have attended such events in the past, usually in my area the couple go through a civil ceremony after the "year and a day" has expired.
Although the Pagan ceremony is quite short the celebrations and feasting make it a very full day.

I actually think this is pretty smart-even though the headline had me worried at first. How many teenagers are itching to get married young and end up divorcing in their twenties? This way, the parents give them what they want, but on a trial basis as a learning experience. If it doesn't work out there are no financial and legal ties to unbind and both kids walk away a little wiser.

Sounds good to me as long as the permenant part comes with a deliberate agreement. So it is not like a common law marriage where it just automatically happens after co-habitating for X amount of years.

I have read about them online, it sounds like a beautiful ritual.
I'm sure as the day wears on the jokes about what to use the rope for gets more creative too. lol

With my mindset at that point in time, I'm sure it would have been a complicated loopty-loop to make the transition, but I don't recall what it was.
