    what’s society’s lame view of marriage? Are you talking about homosexual marriage?

    • Imrahil Says:

      I was actually referring to the tendency to see marriage as a means to fulfill ones own needs. Two individuals marry for the sole purpose of using the other person as an object to get something from them. This might be sex, monetary stability, a general feeling of belonging, or posterity. Thus the only purpose of marriage is to get something from that other person. When that person is no longer providing the desired reward/benefits then it becomes imperative for an immediate cessation of relations.

      To me this is a cold and crass version of what marriage can and should be. It is not a contract. It is a covenant. I have promised to my wife to be her support and shield, and she has done the same with me. We are bound together not simply by law, but by love and holy promise. She is what is important to me, not what she provides of what feelings I get out of the relationship. She is a living person that I love and who loves me, not a provider of goods that might one day dry up.

      Anyway. Sorry for the somewhat lengthy response. I could go on about this for a very long time. So no. I was not talking about same-sex marriage. As a Christian who believes in the Bible, I do not agree with same-sex marriage, but that is another subject, and one that I am not really dealing with at the moment. I am currently attempting to tackle the general view on what marriage is, not who can be partakers of it.
