The whole point of marriage is a LIFETIME relationship. If you want a temporary relationship, just get a boyfriend or girlfriend. When you make the vow, you say "until DEATH be us part," not "until divorce be us part." Some argue that divorce can be a good thing because it's a way out of abusive relationships. But if you have an abusive partner, DON'T MARRY THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE. You made the commitment, so it's your job to stick with it and not sissy out and give up. It causes a lot more problems than help. Maybe you can get out of an abusive relationship, but then you scar your kids for life if you have kids, and you have a lot more problems after the divorce than you did when you were married. I think divorce should be illegal. If it was, we wouldn't have so many broken families.
