No Lives Matter
for a variety of reasons, the age people enter their first marriage has been going up, not down.
So yeah, like I said previously in another thread... make it incredibly difficult to get divorced and make adultery a crime and marriage will be all but obliterated and I'm perfectly okay with that since the government shouldn't be involved in the first place.
Absolutely, agree 100%.
I agree because the root of the problem is that people are getting married to begin with. Or even more simply, that the government is involved at all. I very much agree that making it both difficult to get married, incredibly difficult to get divorced, and quite simply more advantageous not to bother signing some silly government license at all will absolutely get to the root of the problem and eventually get the government out of marriage altogether. One can only hope, anyway.It does solve the root problem as I see it. People should not be getting married at the drop of a hat. People with 10+ divorces under the belt should raise an alarm bell to others. 5 marriages is becoming way to common.
but there are so many variables that its hard to make generalizations anyway. (more schooling, increased cost of living, etc)
