Why is it that some people believe marriage "has no meaning outside of religion"?
I'm often disappointed and saddened (also a tad offended) when I hear or see people that marriage is meaningless without religion. To me, it's a complete disregard for the love two human beings feel for each other (just because the don't follow a religion).
So, why do people believe or say this? Do they understand the consequences of their harsh words? Isn't this the opposite of what religion teaches (you know, that whole love thing)?
Source of the quotation was the tenth answer down. In my time on Answers, I have seen this said repeatedly by many people.
Why do you assume so much? First, I'm female. Secondly, my fiance and I waited a very long time and made a very careful decision because we are both vehemently opposed to divorce. Neither of our sets of parents are divorced, and my parents in particular weathered infidelity and children born of that infidelity.
I still believe in commitment. Do you?
