First, Mexico contemplating the 2 year marriage, yes, you would be able to have a marriage that would let you out after two years without a divorce. You would arrange for custody and asset splits before marriage and you could essentially “try it out” for two years. Wow, that sounds like………well, stupid! The entire point of marriage is forever, not until you feel like walking away. What are the vows going to say? “Do you take so and so to be your lawful wedded wife until let’s say two years from now? Hell, who wouldn’t say yes? Why not, not much of a commitment at all. Here’s what should happen instead…..How about a two year trial of being together BEFORE marriage. It would insure people don’t jump in too quickly and if you need to add living together into the trial, by all means. That makes way more sense to me and let’s just bring up the fact that people who get married usually have kids. What a horrible law to have if children are involved. It’s a great way to ensure a lot of broken families. Their already are broken families you say, yes there are but imagine how many more there would be if people just decided to get married without much of a commitment in the first place. Marriage isn’t easy nor is it for the faint of heart, but it is a commitment and for me, is something to make work through thick and thin, not until times up. Divorce, yes, but that makes people think twice or three times and just maybe will force putting some work into it before giving up.
