Is Marriage Obsolete?By Thefriskyvirgin
Recently, I saw a poll showing how roughly 60% of people now believe marriage is becoming obsolete.
Then, while contemplating an excursion in online dating, I found an article where the founder of e-Harmony basically says we may no longer need marriage. Of course, he does go on to say that marriage can be a beautiful, fulfilling experience if people took the time to select a marriage partner. This makes sense, given how many people we see jumping into marriage at the drop of a dime, only to hop right back out in the not-so-distant future.
Do I need to rethink this marriage thing? Could I?
I get that it's just a piece of paper and it shouldn't matter when it comes to love. But, well, I just can't accept that...not for me. Maybe I'm too old-fashioned for my own good because I still believe in true love and marriage. I know the world has changed; I understand the dynamics of relationships have changed. And I'm acutely aware that I was, in all likelihood, born in the wrong era. Still, I love believing in what doesn't seem possible.
Here's the question burning my brain cells: If the majority of the world views marriage as wholly unnecessary, how does someone like me ever hope to find a man in this great big cynical world who still believes in a little thing called vows?
