Marriage; Pointless or Worthwhile?

AdavardesA wonderful philosophy, truly, but you're assuming I'm never positive about anything. I do enjoy some optimistic pleasures in life, but, I'm sorry, marriage is just not one of those things to inspire optimistic pleasure in me, because I have personal experiences in observance of relationships ending because of marriage. Typically, the two individuals have been loving and committed as they can be, but it doesn't matter. Marriage ends relationships, and the only relationships you hear about lasting, save for a few exceptions, are between people that just learned how to put up with one another.

Yeah, that sounds like some really worthwhile ****. Tell me where I can sign up, Mr. Sunshine.
My own saw on advice; "Good advice is a statement of fact or a question that causes a person to answer their own problem. Bad advice is giving your opinion which is irrelevant as we all have our own paths to take"

Most of the marriages I know, have been long and successful, and of my peers are happy. Should I infer anything from that, or look at wider statistics?

If two people love each other and want to get married, I fail to see why that would doom them to failure.
