My friend said this to me the other day, and she's 6 years my senior. I don't know, I don't feel I'm out of touch but is this something people feel? Is marriage on the skids and are people in relationships that are not married happier? Are the confounds maybe a factor that takes the fun away?

Animals don't get married and don't have a need for it. You may laugh, but think: it's just restriction mostly because of religion. Was marriage evert road to happiness? I have never had much sympathy for the whole idea.

I think marriage has made a return, it's more like the opposite. Will it ever be outdated? I think not.

Where people love each other they will try to add symbolism and ceremony to it, because it's important to them. As long as relationships are important to people marriage will also be important. It will never go away and if it goes away it would only be because it's called something else whilst having the same function.

I heard they were saying 50 years ago that marriage is outdated, but I don't hear any good arguments.

Of course not. They have been sayng its outdated for many years, and there is absolutely no sign that it's going obsolete.

Of course not. Is falling in love, or family outdated?

institutions cn change bt humans r humans & ul nor change dat. in d playground 6 yr old kids will think of a code for who is in d group or secret friendship rings btwn frnds. marriage is 1 of ths things as well. d code or d term may change u may call it somethn else but human behavr will nvr change: we all want somthn & some1 of our own.
