"Divorce papers pf"

With the divorce rate at approximately 40% to 50%, you have many more couples asking, “Why even get married?” Another sentiment you often hear is, “Marriage ruins everything.” But that sentiment is a lazy one. It puts the blame on a mere label and set of papers. Did that ring really ruin your relationship? Or that little piece of paper otherwise known as a marriage certificate? You were already living together. You were already sharing your lives, responsibilities and a bed. So let us be real: marriage doesn’t ruin a relationship that wasn’t already doomed for one of these fundamental reasons.

  • Money is one of the biggest reasons. If money is an issue, many other things become magnified.

    I agree with the other posts. Too many pages. I didn’t even bother looking at any other pages, but I agree with what’s on this one lol Marriage can’t ruin a relationship. The people involved make the decisions about what to do with their relationship.

  • Please stop with the multiple pages, MN.
    It may very well hit on some points, but I won’t know cuz I ain’t clickin that many times. Surely you can put this stuff on the same page.

        They commented on that once, they said something about the multiple pages gives the site more hits or helps with advertising or some mess like that. It’s annoying as all hell but apparently they have to do it no matter how much we complain. SMH
