Serial Monogamy versus marriagePage 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)

I have to look for something different than allowing the social security folks to give me less money by virtue of the fact that I am married than if I stayed single, madly in love, and living with someone in a cohabitational, monogamous situation. It isn't fair but it's true.


So True Maggie , my parents didn't plan well for retirement , and one of the things they were considering to improve theur situation ..was divorce , after 58 years !......we children stepped in to avert that .

But The Ideal that our goverment penalizes us for being married ,
seems a clear violation of our right to choose

Serial Monogamy versus marriage
Posted: 2/9/2013 2:04:15 PM
Marriage is great for some people. Personally I'd like to be married but not unless I am in a totally terrific relationship. Otherwise I'll stick to serial monogamy. I don't want to be celibate and I don't want to get married just to have "legal" sex. Marriage is hard work and you have to be 100% committed to the marriage to make it work. Divorce is expensive and a major hassle. So are weddings. So each person needs to decide for themselves what they prefer. I was engaged to a man who has been divorced 4 times. I finally thought "I must be crazy to marry this person". We broke up.
