Marriage in modern society
As a human there are two things you can count on; death and taxes. Marriage is one thing you hope you can count on because a majority of peoples life goals usually consist on them seeking their souls recognition of its counterpart in another, or love. the only true way to share love, is to share everything else from your money to your debts. Marriage has changes throughout society for the worst part.

Modern marriage has evolved from a very sacred ceremony and way of life to just a thing two people do for various reasons other than love. Marriage began as a bond between 2 people who love each other and evolved into something creators would not agree with. today marriage is only viewed only as a legal thing, a document that links two people together that another document can void. then other people wanted to decide who could and could not be married, even though they might love each other, they are punished for their life choices and are treated unfairly.

"Til death do us part" an excerpt from the book of common prayer that signifies that you are married until death parts you from each other, but that changed when henry the Vlll created the anglican church and created the "divorce" that ends marriages before death. In 2011 it was estimated that 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, signifying that 50 percent of people got married to a person they should not have. marriages used to be a big deal back in the day, now they have a marriage season. marriage also has become a big money-making business because of all the help needed in planning and executing a wedding. with money involved it leads to outside influences on peoples decisions of being married or not, those 50 percent of people that had divorces were probably pushed by an outside influence to get married which is why it ended in a divorce. marriage has lost a lot of its meaning with the implication of the divorce, it took the love out of marriage.
