    And no couple should have to prove abuse just to get a divorce, especially if there are no children involved.
    So, IYV, the promises made with marriage vows can be readily extinguished with little consequence when one simply gets tired of his/her/whatever partner?

    Not according to many religious marriages, such as Catholicism for example. But we are talking about marriage licenses, the civil aspect, so I don't see why not.

    Then why bother with marriage in the first place?

    For all the reasons people want to get married. Its not like people plan on getting a divorce and hating the person they are about to marry. Why prevent an unhappy marriage from ending?

    Why get married in the first place if one can simply walk away from the "commitment" at anytime? Is it just for some pseudo acceptance of the relationship within society?

    There are no legal promises that must be made in marriage. There are no required marriage vows that a person must agree to. They already are whatever a single couple wants their marriage to be.

    Because people make mistakes. People change. Life happens in a way that people didn't expect.

    I already answered the question. For all the reasons people want to get married. Its not like people plan on getting a divorce and hating the person they are about to marry. Why prevent an unhappy marriage from ending?

    Restating your question in different words is not answering mine.

    Then why is government sanction so important?

    What are those reasons if it can be ended so easily on a whim? You see, we seem to think marriage is nothing more than individuals deciding to shack up until one get tired of the other...
