I think marriage is still true for some people but not all because people will marry not for love but money or power instead.
I think marriage doesn't have its intended purpose anymore, it used to be something that only happned one time and now people are getting married repeatidly just because they can. I think true love exsists but finding it is extremely difficult.
Yes, I agree with that because when you marry someone you are setting up to stay with them for the rest of your life.
Agree, marriage still serves its purpose many people still have long lasting meaningful marriages. True love does exist but it shouldn't be looked at in the light of fairy tales. True love in real life is no written is the stars head over heels at first sight.
In some situations yes but others, not really because knowing that you can get married and if it doesn't work can get divorced makes some people not truly consider if they are willing to spend the rest of your life and will jump to the decision of getting married.
I do not agree, I now see it as modern day marriages are just to fit in with the crowds and those who aren't getting married oddly stand out. But some who do get married aren't truly in love, just trying to fit in and be acceptable.
Only some people use marriage for its intended purpose but others sort of abuse it I guess. True love does exist but only with the right person/people and only if you use it right.
I do not think that marriage still serves its intended purpose. There is no commitment anymore, our divorce rate is crazy right now. People marry for money or power and then they divorce after a month. There just isnt anymore commitment to have a family or a good life with your spouse.
I think it's pretty divided now, some marriages are for true love, other marriages are more for the money or status gain. Some straight marriages are still more about love than money, and most LGBTQ+ marriages are about love, but others just want the money or power. Such as the woman marrying the billionaires, only to divorce for half their money.
Marriage's true purpose is to unconditionally love someone and have a life partner. Today, it is hard to find a marriage that has that because it has been so normalized to give up on a relationship when something solvable doesn't want to be fixed. I think that true love does still exist, but it is very rare.
I think that people have forgotten what marriage truly is. Marriage is a ceremony made by God to show the binding of two people into one. These two people love each other so much that they want to be known in the public eye as one person. With the rates of divorce I think most people have forgotten that, they find someone they enjoy being around but don't really know and they rush into marriage. But marriage should be well planned and tested before executed.
Yes, If you marry someone I feel like most people by that point are committed. People don't marry unless you want to be with them forever.
Marriage does not serve its purpose for true love. True love is not always because of marriage and not everyone gets married because of true love. In the past marriages were used for alliances between families.
This is an interesting view on the topic of marriage. Up until around 70 years ago, marriage was never about love. It was about necessity. People got married to escape a less than ideal country, or to protect fortune and prosperity within a select group of people. Marriage used to be about status, and appearances. It is only in more current times that it is about love, and that’s still not the primary reason for marriage in some cases.
Family life now is so much more different than how it used to be. I think marriage is a good thing, but is being abused in different ways. I do not think it is why to "test" marriage by living together before being married. I think kids are being taught so many different things and we don't even talk to each other in person. I think true love does exist, but if one thing goes wrong in a relationship then "its obviously flawed", try a new partner.
I believe that the intended purpose for marriage differs for everyone and that love can't exist where people are forced to follow gender roles or exercise power over one another. I believe that you should come to agreements using love. I am not sure if romantic true love really exists, though. I certainly hope it does, but perhaps it's only a disguise for sexual desire and gender injustice.
Marriage is still a meaningful thing to most people but some people take advantage of it and use it to benefit themselves.
I feel like this is a 50/50, because people often marry for money, lust, arranged marriages are still a thing. And also religion, there's a lot more to marriage now a days
I think marriage gets taken advantage of nowadays because lots of people marry for money, I still think true love exists but it is very rare.
I believe that marriage serves a better purpose than it has for a larger portion of history, in which it was transactional and more of a business matter than one of affection. I think that true love in the sense that a pair of people may become so devoted to one other, that the thought of commitment to another person is completely impossible is possible and even can be relatively easily achieved if a married couple works constantly and consistantly on their relationship for that end.
I feel that in these recent years marriage has been categorized as an old tradition and now you should just live with your partner to see if it works. Another thing is that people get married then separate super fast. I feel like these things have made marriage not important and actual love harder to find, because in the past the average marriage have lasted longer than they do now and I feel that this is because of how they came to be married and I feel that they had a better commitment than us now. We now seem to think that if something goes wrong then the relationship is doomed and so you should split up. I believe that true love exists but it takes time and is not a sudden thing, I feel that as your marriage continues, struggles and others things can actually help their love for one another grow if they trust each other and try to help each other through things.
I think marriage is serving it's intended purpose, a part of the time. Some people still marry for love, and because they want to spend the rest of their lives with this person. But some people are doing it for money, because they want power, or for pleasured reasons.
True love has always, and never existed. Love is trial and error, you could argue that marriage these days are not about love, but has it ever been. I would almost say that marriage is better these days, because it would have been about binding family's back in the day not 2 people. Do what you want with your love life.
