Divorce Has Become So Common that it is Almost Expected in Today's Society.



Marriage, once considered a sacred and lifelong commitment, has now become a disposable commodity in today's society. People no longer take marriage seriously, treating it as a temporary arrangement that can be easily discarded when it no longer serves their selfish desires. The vows that were once solemnly exchanged in the presence of God and loved ones are now broken as easily as a cheap piece of jewelry.


I recite this to myself all the time. One day I will be someones wife lol. In the name of God, I, take you, (whoever my husband is), to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, to love and to cherish until we are parted by death. These words, once spoken with sincerity and commitment, are now just empty promises that hold no real meaning for many couples. Instead of honoring these vows and working through the challenges that come with marriage, people are quick to give up and walk away at the first sign of trouble.


Couples no longer see marriage as a lifelong commitment, but rather as a temporary arrangement that can be easily dissolved when things get tough. The sanctity of marriage has been lost, replaced by a culture of instant gratification and self-centeredness.



How can couples expect to make it to 30 or 40 year anniversaries when they can't even make it past the first few years without calling it quits? Even if its 500 times like Ray J and Princess! The divorce rate is at an all-time high, with more and more couples choosing to end their marriages rather than work through their problems. It seems that the idea of sticking it out through thick and thin, for better or for worse, is a thing of the past.


If we continue down this path, we will never see couples celebrating milestone anniversaries like our grandparents did. The idea of growing old together and weathering life's storms as a team seems like a distant dream in today's society. Instead, we are left with a generation of individuals who view marriage as nothing more than a temporary arrangement that can be easily discarded when it no longer serves their needs.



It's time for couples to start taking marriage seriously again. It's time to honor the vows that were spoken on their wedding day and commit to working through the challenges that come with marriage. It's time to put aside selfish desires and focus on building a strong and lasting relationship that can withstand the test of time.


Marriage is not a disposable commodity. It is a sacred bond that should be cherished and nurtured. It's time for couples to start treating it as such and stop disregarding it like a brand new outfit. Only then will we see couples celebrating 30 and 40 year anniversaries once again.

This is horrible. Marriage is sacred and should be treated as such.
