I Still Think Marriage is a Lifetime Commitment

I was just reading a post I wrote several months ago over on my other blog.  Mostly it was just a 'conversation' I copied from my facebook page.  I'd started by posting something about the sorry state of marriage in today's society and how people don't seem to need much of an excuse to call in the divorce lawyer montreal, or their own local divorce attorney.  It's like nobody really sees marriage as a lifetime commitment.  It's not 'until death do us part' or 'as long as you both shall live' anymore.  Marriage is one man and one woman for a lifetime - and not just until they don't feel like being married anymore or they 'drift apart' and then move on to the next one.

Anyway, my comment sparked a whole storm of comments with at least one person letting herself become very offended by my opinion and then even unfriending me at the end of the day because I didn't come around to her point of view.  Or something.  I've read the whole thing over again several times, and I really don't understand what she was trying to say, and she wasn't inclined to explain.  I suppose I really shouldn't care, and I really don't think of it much, but I just happened to see one of her comments pop up on a friend's status the other day, and that reminded me.  So I read through it again.  Oh well.

Yes, there are legitimate reasons for divorce and needing a family lawyer montreal, including abuse and adultery.  Thankfully those lawyers are available for those who need them.  I was just commenting on the fact that it's sad so many divorces happen for seemingly frivolous reasons.  And I stand by that opinion.  If someone gets all bent out of shape because he or she got divorced for one of those frivolous reasons and thinks I'm judging him or her, then so be it. I mean, maybe I could/should apologize, but I'm not sure what I would be apologizing for.  Having an opinion?  Not agreeing with the other point of view?  Not even understanding what that point of view is?

Feel free to chime in with your own opinions of marriage and/or divorce.
