What does the divorce rate in America say about how people view marriage? Has the concept, nay, the institution of marriage lost its meaning?
I don’t ask this as a conceptual question either. What is marriage supposed to be? Most people go into it believing the first time is the only time, but at some point that changes, apparently.
What changes? What makes people go from forever to for a while? Is it the ingrown notion that the ‘I’ is the most important thing in life?
If most people still view marriage as intended to be permanent, why is it so easily discarded?
