    Marriage: What is marriage? Marriage is a legally and socially sanctioned union regulated by laws, rules, beliefs, customs, and attitudes. You see the task you perform when your married are the same task you perform when your not married, so is there really any reason to get married, no. Its just something people do for attention and entertainment. People are too unstable and unpredictable, you never know if the person you want to marry is good or bad. I don't think marriage is safe, I don't think its worth the risk. You never know how its going to end, in success or tragedy. You could become a victim of violence, you could end up in the courtroom for years arguing over who gets custody of the children, how much your going to pay in child support, how much your going to pay in alimony, and who gets what possessions. It's stressful and a waste of your life. You don't need a marriage certificate, a wedding dress, a fancy, expensive ring, a big ceremony, or a honeymoon to show your loyalty, respect, and love to someone. Qualities like loyalty, respect, and love come from always doing what's just, not from getting married and having children.

  5. Fred MagnanimiisFounder:

    After nearly ten years of marriage, sometimes [ I ] need to shoot her again with [ cupid's ] arrow, just to remind her that we can still be in the honeymoon phase.
