I have not been a practicing Roman Catholic since I graduated from highschool. Yet I think my religious upbringing gave me a solid foundation and spiritual fortitude. And I have to agree with Pope Benedict XVI on this one. Too many people look at marriage as something to walk away from if it doesn't work, like a failed business venture. However, the costs of spiritual bankruptcy are far greater than a material bankruptcy, imo. ...

Tell me about it. I sometimes wonder how on earth people marry and divorce all the time, multiple times.

I agree, KF.  Marriage is not like an item of clothing that can be discarded easily.  I don't get how people can divorce multiple times either.

I believe that two people can be committed to each other for life without being married. Now I annoys me how people jump on the maariage wagon just to divorce some months later. It's pathetic...

And some women treat marriage as some sort of inalienable right, that after a number of years a woman desrves a ring and the men around her owe her a decent lifestyle! Utterly disgusting really.

^^^ I agree KF~marriage is sacred, imo, and all the "inalienable rights" people try to place upon the legal aspects of a marriage are not appropriate. No one is entitled to another's income or standard of living if they choose to sever the legal contract. I think there should be financial penalties for adulterers and other misdeeds that cause a marriage to fall apart, as when there is an economic inequality between the two, sometimes the one with the money thinks they can do whatever they want and they abuse the other. ...

We should eliminate no-fault divorce and bring back faults. No one has problems talking about issues in marriage and I persoanlly think that divorce should be stigmatized with social diapproval if someone ends up being chronically married and divorced. And women had better prove they haev somehting substantial in their own right to offer, none of this "I just wnat to be a homemaker" nonsense, because women like that usually end up wanting a fabulous mansion, car, jewels as ingrediants to thier homemaking.

I'm not married and I doubt I ever will (been single for the last three years and not complaining about it)
So frankly I couldn't care less about this mess of triple marriage and divorce thing, it doesn't concern me
Exactly because I don't want to get a divorce, I'll never marry!
Marriage and a wedding holds no glamour for me personally any more, doesn't mean I don't like to watch others get married I just don't need it for my own happiness any more.
I'm to down to earth to believe that a piece of paper is gonna change my life, the marriage ritual of 'forever together' has lost it's magic to me more then ten years ago!

No one is realistic about marriage these days, so many people (KM among others) reaching for the stars when they should be happy on earth. Then sometimes other people want MORE out of the other, or life in general than teh other person and then a huge mess develops.
