    Since the beginning of time, people have tied love up with a legal knot. Now ...that knot isn't quite as tight. The threat of leaving a relationship and losing your house, your car, your life, and being branded a DIVORCED person doesn't have the stigma it use to have. I think it's a step in the right direction. Less law, more love, and if it doesn't work out ...such is life, start over and keep lookin, until you find the person you can't live without. My wife and I have been married for 40 years. It's not love or else, it's love because you can't manage to live apart.

    I am a Christian and believe in marriage! Living together seems to be 'easier' for people, they are afraid to commit to anything or anyone. They do not want to 'work' at marriage or problems. I believe in a man and a woman marriage, period as God defines it in the Bible. God created, ordained and blessed marriage but through the years, somehow the sanctity of marriage has disappeared. Live together and if you get tired of or sick of your partner, or fall out of love, you can just leave. Does anyone care of or think about children that may come of that situation, or of STDs that are possible? Anyone who is committed to their marriage and cherishes the vow they made to God and will work hard to keep it. Sadly it doesn't always work, but people are afraid to say the 'for better or worse' phrase or more than likely, they don't hear it. Ever heard of the phrase "love'em and leave'em"? America is losing it's morals and Godly principles it was founded on – that is when God says 'no more'. If we turn away from God, He will not help us; if we turn back to God, He will forgive. Doesn't seem to phase people though. Sad the road America is headed down. Any wonder why children are having so many problems, turning to drugs, the streets, suicide. God help us! Just my thoughts, thank you.

    Women's lib ruined marriage. Women lobbied for laws and politicians passed them AND womens lawyers Got PC judges to make marriage into a prison sentence. Women know how to turn a marriage into he** (and they do). A man is crazy (today) to say "I do."

    Living together a sin. hello It is a sin to lie. A sin to steal. A sin to cheat. And I can go on and on so this is just one sin that people focus on. It is there business leave them alone. People don't even respect each other when they are marriage. Morre marriage men cheat than those that are not marriage. Let them be responsible to their God not you. Living together is the new new Marriage people dont last as long as people who live together. Times has changed.

    At the end the air head on the right said I can't keep a relationship. Well, of course she can't because she is living outside of God's law.
