I had a discussion of my survey with friends and acquaints, of the complexities of relationships and if marriage has any value. If we did away with marriage would it resolve issues of the who, and what constitutes marriage or how it's to be defined.
Whether you feel marriage is sacred or just part of a furthering relationship, our commitments to each other are difficult in expression and living out. This difficulty throughout the beginning of time is expressed so vividly within our media, music, and literature. We seem in a never ending pursuit of trying to express and place value and putting merit towards our relationships and commitments towards each other. You can express this in a very simplistic way, just by the expression of trusting words, as in, I will love you always, I commit to you, I pledge my allegiance to you, or other such phrases. For some surveyed, this would be quite satisfactory, for others they where looking for something more substantial, something with more depth.
