Ideas tend to die violent deaths if they’re held on to past their practical use. This is how revolutions happen sometimes. A long attacked idea has been marriage. It used to make a lot of sense for purposes that were legal, social, libidinal, emotional, financial, spiritual and religious, or some combination of these. These reasons to wed have become tarnished and a bit outdated over the years, becoming either obsolete or easily replaced by something else. Maybe marriage will finally die the day that we figure out how not to: higher life expectancies have long been to blame for divorce- not many people want to spend 80 years with one other person. Makes you wonder what will happen to marriage if we ever learn how to significantly extend our lifespans- would anyone really want to be married for 150 years? [Ryan Nimmo]
