Considering the high rate at which marriages are falling apart, homes are being broken, the attendant paranoia these foist on those who are yet to brave the marriage pact and the havoc it wreaks on those whom theirs have fallen apart, is it out of order if one asked whether marriage is now something of the stone ages? Is it that the ladies have become to yippie/trendy to stay married or the guys can't just keep the sacred vows? Why would people go before a priest to make vows they know they can't just keep? Why has functional marriage become such an endangered species? Whilst religion is proliferating, the basic unit of society, the family is fading away per time. It's so thick one could cut it with a knife, the tension, reservation and anxiety people have about marriage these days. Just poll a few folks at your workplace or your neighbourhood about what and how they feel about getting married, you'd be shocked to the bones. What happened to a sustainable marriage not tensed up with fears of getting torn by cheating and the like? Some couples even get a divorce 40 years after marriage! Could it be that they were just tolerating each other all these long while? What on God's earth is going on? What hope have we?
