I'd like to hear a discussion regarding the common question in the last few years, what is the importance of marriage? is it still relevant?
Marriage doesn't seem that important since people keep on divorcing nowadays. I guess people are taking it less seriously.
Well if that is the case, then why are is there a big issue over gay marriage?
I don't think it's -important-. It's possible to maintain a relationship without getting married, you just get benefits and you're "legally" joined until death or divorce. It depends on the person, I guess.
"BECAUSE THE DIVORCING STRAIGH PEOPLE ARE COMMIE INFIDELS ANYWAY AND DO NOT COUNT AS HONEST, GOOD, STRAIGHT PEOPLE!"
If you are a man, stay away from marriage. All you have in front of you in a marriage is a 50% chance of divorce and 75% chance of losing your children and property after a divorce. The laws are stacked up against you my man.
If two Gay-or-Straight people wish to be married, they pay someone and go before gODD to make it (holy? and) Legal.
If two Gay-or-Straight people wish to be UN-Married, they pay someone and go before a LAWYER to make it (UN-Holy and) Legal.

Longevity of Love has NOTHING to do with the Theatrics of Marriage.
In some circumstances, marriage can be useful. I married because I was in a long distance relationship, and we needed something of a bond, since living together was not possible.
In that sense it worked pretty well
Although marriage is mostly a way to spend money, some people really value it, they take it as a romantic thing to do.
Sealing a contract with someone you love, of eternal love, kind of makes you feel fluffy wuffy i suppose. That kind of promise also makes you feel safer.
Though i dont believe in marriage as i think if a couple truly loves each other they dont need to be legally binded, the first was the most ignorant thing ive heard in all my time here reading these threads/posts.
