    Default You Guys REALLY Want to Preserve the Sanctity of Marriage?

    Quit worrying about politics and gays.

    sanc·ti·ty
    ˈsaNG(k)titē/Submit
    noun
    noun: sanctity; plural noun: sanctities
    the state or quality of being holy, sacred, or saintly.
    "the site of the tomb was a place of sanctity for the ancient Egyptians"
    synonyms: holiness, godliness, blessedness, saintliness, spirituality, piety, piousness, devoutness, righteousness, goodness, virtue, purity; More
    ultimate importance and inviolability.
    "the sanctity of human life"
    synonyms: inviolability; More
    Origin

    late Middle English (in the sense ‘saintliness’): from Old French sainctite, reinforced by Latin sanctitas, from sanctus ‘holy.’


    Until we as Christians treat marriage as the sacred bond that it is, then we have no right 'defending' it.

    Quite frankly, it needs defending from us.

    I am so tired of hearing men and women whom I know to be covering for friends affairs, or having their own, or not being the spouses they should be, complain about gay marriage.

    You want marriage to be sacred again? Start at your house.

    Otherwise we look like a laughingstock and a bunch of hypocrites playing musical spouses till we're too old to pick up chicks anymore.

    Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, just surrounded by jerks.

    Person B, the spouse, would have to press charges just like many crimes so whether or not the adulterous spouse was needed as a paycheck would have to be part of their consideration. That's not the problem.

    The problem is finding an attorney who will take the case because they all say, no judge is going to hear this.

    Do you know, that I told my attorney that I would not under any circumstances sign divorce papers if the grounds were irreconcilable differences so he raised his retainer 1000. because 'judges don't like that'.


    Judges can bite me.

    Be glad that Bill Gates didn't quit when he gave a poor presentation to a business group and didn't get the funding he was after to start his fledgling company.

    And thank Heaven that General Washington didn't run and say "It's too hard waaahhh!" when his men were freezing and dying pinned in by the Brits.


    And it takes faith that if two people agree that their marriage is going to work and that they are going to be happy together, they will.

    i think you've watched too many Tyler Perry movies.

    He wrote us a letter. It's called The Bible.

    Preach Smyrna and when you have to use words.

    and that's what you do every day when people see your testimony!

    G-d is good!

    I think you've made yourself very clear pessimist, you do not care to preserve, nor do you see any, sanctity of marriage.

    Thank you for your input.

    Oh I believe in preserving something that is worthy of it. An unhealthy relationship isn't and never will be worthy of preserving. It is FOOLISH to think otherwise.

    Anyway, we've already discussed this to death, and besides I understand your message.

    I will leave your thread now

    You keep ignoring the fact that two people can work together.

    I don't mean to sound condescending, but I kinda feel sorry for you or rather, your future spouse. Seems like you've got your exit strategy planned out already.

    You don't just toss a child out when it gets sick. You take it to the doctor. Just because something is unhealthy at one stage of its existence, doesn't mean theres not healing.

    Good luck Pessimist. G-d be with you.

    I was actually talking to you there. I mean, unless you've made up all that stuff you have posted about your husband or unless some of those details you've disclosed to me are flat-out lies...I don't know why any sane person would want to try and make something like that work or try to preserve or sit around waiting with false and misplaced hope.

    @smyma..you do realize people get married too quickly without fully knowing each other, right?

    Some end up in abusive and miserable relationships after they've discovered the 'other side' of their spouse. How many times have you heard "I didn't marry that person?"

    Btw how many times have you met someone (could be a coworker, neighbor, etc) who turned out to be a lot different from when you first met them? People end up in unhealthy relationships all the time without ever seeing any warning signs.
