While I agree it shouldn't be considered as such; your logic is flawed there. As everyone isn't, it can be pointed to quite readily as why pieces are crumbling in the majority view. *shrug*

I prefer neither. I never understood marriage and it baffles me how people see it as a sign of "commitment".

Oh, I disagree. One of the privileges of living in the US is that we all have the opportunity to live our lives as we personally see fit.
We don't have to change anybody else, just be who we are. When people who don't agree with you complain, just tune them out and get on with your life.

I agree. I think we all know at lease one couple that was together for a long time, but got divorced soon after they got married. Including me LOL.
