    Then that is your problem. Of course, if you go into your marriage expecting to eventually pay alimony, then it is likely that you don't have too much confidence in the marriage to begin with.

And if we are being honest...you probably would feel better with a blanket apology to people on this forum for letting your emotions get the better of you. Its not personal. Dont make it personal. Dont take it personally.

    I've been married 33 years. Its been a battle but its also been fricken awesome. Never once has divorce come up as a possibility and the last thing ever on my mind would be about the negative financial aspect of separation and divorce. Dont tlet those things cloud your opinion on what is and always will be a powerful and beautiful thing.

    These people are on here gloating and rubbing it in...they'll never get an apology from me.

    Marriage certificates are a relic of yesteryear. Over half of married couples divorce. To not prepare for the possibility is foolish

    You heard wrong. Good lawyers make sure it's valid. That's what I pay them for.To give me sound legal advice.

    They used flowery language, yes. That happens.

    But the legal argument is sound. No state interest exists in barring a same-sex couple from signing a legal contract and therefore the equal protection challenge is upheld.

    If you think emotion is the basis for their argument, all you have to do is prove their argument wrong with some sort of unbiased fact.

    There have already been cases to argue these types of issues and, in fact, the Supreme Court very recently refused to review (and thus upheld) a State Supreme Court decision which denied a polygamist challenge.

    Church's are not required to marry anyone.

    It was more of a story about a woman who had two "moms" and how it negatively impacted her life.

    Over half of marriages end in divorce. It would be foolish not to consider the possibility
