How many people have you heard lament about the high divorce rate in the U.S? I'm divorced. My husband is divorced. Several of our close friends are divorced. In school, many of my friends' parents were divorced...it goes on and on.
Hubby mentioned something to me the other day that kind of pissed me off about the whole thing. Some people we know got married - just so one or the other of them could get health benefits. Seriously? 'Society' worries about the divorce rate, but in some cases, unless you're married, you're out on your butt with your medical concerns.
It's getting so marriage is just another contract, another business, an industry that satisfies other needs. How very sad. What if the only reason to be married was for love? It sounds like the divorce rate may be a little better then.
