Love Making Is Not The Only Part Of Our Marriage

May 19, 2008
Marriages vary widely in terms of how much conflict the partners tolerate. Partners in a volatile marriage are highly expressive and willing to give and take a fairly large amount of conflict, whereas partners in a conflict-avoiding marriage, by definition, try to minimize clashes and downplay displays of emotionality.

According to UN studies, about 1 million people are forced into marriages around the world. According to Khanum, the girls are usually cowed into submission by threats. They are warned that if they refuse to wed their arranged partner, the dishonor will force her parents to divorce, for example. According to the FDA, the sexual effects of aphrodisiacs are based in folklore, not fact.
Personally, I would rather not deal with the whole ordeal, and I feel that some people still do not take relationships seriously until someone walks down the aisle. Personally, she doesn't want this, she told me. She was given the time to think, and finally she agreed, last month.

Marriage is not, and has never been, the mere recognition of committed and loving relationships between adults. Lots of adults love one another and are committed to one another (a grandfather and his adult grandchild, or war buddies, or close sisters, you understand), but these commitments have never been considered marriage. Marriages have become all too common nowadays, don't you think. You just have to do it, or you wont fit in with society. Marriage isn't something society allows, It's something society honors.

Couples with underage children should be denied divorce. Would anyone seriously advocate all these measures, Couples in these situations have to come into relationships with their eyes open. Many parents place their responsibility for their children above their own happiness, which can quickly weed out dating partners who aren't prepared for the challenges of being a stepparent.

Parents, relatives and other clan elders in their search for the right match inevitably end up pairing individuals from more or less the same economic background. Deviations from established practices are not common. Parents or friends introduce the couple and let them talk via phone or email, meet a couple of times, and then ask for a decision. However, when parents are involved, there will inevitably be some pressure as they can't help but give their opinion and advice.

Divorce rates, which have been escalating since 2003, remain at about 3.3 percent, up from 2.9 percent before the start of the war. Incidences of combat stress are soaring, with a new independent study finding that as many as 1 in 5 service members are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or major depression, a reality that deeply affects their families. Divorce is so commonplace now that people don't buy monogrammed wedding gifts, so that the items will be usable after the split.
