  • Thanks for the nightmares I know that I'm gonna have tonight. +5
  • You know...that is actually so scary I don't want to think about it lol. I'd probably be dead right now after committing suicide to get away from my future ex wife. We all make mistakes, and marrying the wrong person is one a lot of us make, I just couldn't do it lol.
  • can anyone point me toward the grand canyon? i wanna take diving lessons....
  • Well, people would think first which would be a big change. Maybe there would be less of a problem with throw away children, remarrying only to find out that the first person wasn't so bad after all, and actually taking responsibility for a life time partnership. There should be a little more to marriage than just, I'm bored, I give up. Maybe not this drastic though.
  • Then again, look at the positive aspect at that. No one would rush into frivolous marriages, they would actually spend 5+ years getting to know the person before rushing into a marriage. Just a side perspective, I still agree it would be scary!
  • Maybe marriage wouldn't be taken so lightly.
  • Add that to the mormon religion that believes when you get married your married forever in life and there after
  • Ouch. That wouldn't be a happy picture. Only 40% percent of people would be happy and the rest...quite miserable. Well, in some sort of way society has stigmatized divorce, and even though you can get it, a lot of people don't because they don't want to go through the whole cathedra of it. In a way that is not an option for some people.
  • +5 Yes. When I got married divorce was not and has not been an option. It is 35 years now and will be 36 next month.
  • When I got married, I made a vow to my wife before God and I intend to keep it. People take marriage too lightly these days. If you don't intend to stay married, don't do it.
  • I guess there would be more homicides, I mean mysterious deaths, in the world.
  • depends.... do I get to have my wife stoned for commiting adultery?
  • we would all just live together without the bonds of matrimony.
  • But people would do what they want and take even less responsibility for it. Like cheating and taking off to leave you with the bills. Kids would be more traumatized. I would like to have classes in high school on society: types of people, abusers, the court system, marriage, household tasks, babies & children raising, divorce, money and emotions. There is one school that actually contacts the parents when the computer baby is abused or neglected. +3
  • I think there would be a lot less marriage and a lot more murder.
  • the Murder rate would go through the roof!
  • Life as a hitman would become quite lucrative........
  • not a problem for me.. things are good. i could be more of a sexpot but i think hubby will keep me.
  • people wouldn't propose so quickly *lol* who knows the whole concept of marriage would disappear
  • I would actually like that. I think too many people get married for the wrong reasons or without understanding who you're marrying or what marriage means. I also think that there would be a way to get a divorce but it wouldn't be easily done or even legally.
  • It would be a bad thing for those that are abused..but a good thing for those that feel marriage is just another silly ceremony. I think divorce is so easy and people just take it as an inconvenience, not taking into consideration the people (kids mainly) that are hurt in the process.
  • My great-grandmother divorced when my grandmother was about three. She was probably the only woman in her town - her whole county - perhaps larger - to have gotten a divorce in that decade. He was an abusive man and I can't imagine what she must have gone through, and fought for, to get that divorce. Whenever I hear about the rising divorce rates as a BAD thing, I wonder why it is so bad? To me it does not indicate that more people's relationships deteriorate but that they can LEAVE, rather than rot together, when this happens. I think it's great. Divorce is painful, but it's better than the alternative. Ah, so SHORT ANSWER: I think that would be horrible.
  • Look what happened in the recent past when divorce was harder to get.... the bigomy rate was sky high!
  • More suffering, hate, murder.
  • that's the way it should be. for me that's how I looked at my marriage before I said "I do" so I am not phased by this question :)
  • To do that, they would need to first make it illegal to live together or marry prior to age 24. http://tinyurl.com/RightAgeToMarry-2
  • Well it sort of used to be like that in a way. There were lots of marriages i think that the people just sort of went through the motions and put up with it even though they were unhappy.
  • I think if that was the case you would no longer have to die to go to hell. LOL
  • Well, I know it would be a bad thing in my opinion. That's almost as bad as imagining how life would be if abortion became illegal as well.
  • i think we would have less people getting married without actually thinking about it. i also think we could cut back on those atrocious shows: who wants to marry a millionaire, who wants to marry flava flave, who wants to marry a midget, who wants to marry a random fat guy.
  • That's the way I view marriage, divorce isn't an option for us. I realize that some people marry people that are abusive, liars, drug addicts, however if divorce wasn't even an option would they have ever married them in the first place? I think it would force people to truly get to know each other before they made those vows.
  • There are Jewish men who refuse to grant their wives a divorce. That leaves the women in limbo till the husband relents.
  • personally, that is the way it should be in my opinion....first off, when you get married, there are vows in which you agree on, stating that you will stick with it through thick and thin....I think divorce should only be available to cases involving physical abuse....everything else should be worked out.....and yes....that even means infidelity.
  • Not really. I think people would make a better choice and not settle as many people do.
  • I suspect marriage rates would drop & bigomy rates would rise.
  • Where I live, divorce is actually NOT an option. Divorce is not legal. I read a lot of different answers to this question .. I guess most of the people around the world got used to the fact that divorce is always an option. In Malta, people do not kill each other because there is no divorce. I think that those who actally do get married here, are the ones who want to make it work, those who took years to getting to know their partner before getting married. I m not saying that all marriages end in a happily-ever-after story ( some people get seperated, or in some cases, get an annulment.) I'm not saying that I'm against divorce .. in fact I am not. All I'm saying is that, yes, life is possible without having divorce as an option. People can still be happy, have a healthy relationship with their family, without having to kill each other!! If you wanna get married, you need to know what you re getting yorself into. If you find the right person, marriage can be a wonderful thing ..
  • I think it would make a lot more people think carefully before they took the plunge. I jumped into a marriage without knowing that this man was already married in a different state... I'm still not quite sure how he got away with that, but I think if there was a law that said you couldn't get a divorce I would have thought more carefully about it and eventually I could have found out about the other wife and chose differently.
  • It would be living hell!!!!!
