So I was listening to the radio this morning and the co-hosts were having a heated debate about whether marriage was relevant nowadays. And I have to tell you, I was genuinely blown by the fact that none of the three (2 guys and a girl) saw any point to the institution in today’s society.
Because despite the fact that I am nowhere near ready to be locked in a legal union myself, I do wholeheartedly believe that healthy marriages are more relevant they’ve ever been. Mind you, I said HEALTHY marriages.
The way I see it a healthy marriage forces people to share, communicate, respect and cooperate with another person even when he or she is not getting exactly what they want.
Which is EXACTLY what’s lacking in the world today.
I mean, what do guys think? Sure, it’s not for everybody but in the grand scheme of life does that mean marriage isn’t relevant? Or am I just a throwback romantic who needs to stop listening to crappy NYC morning radio and go get her taxes done?
