Hmmmm.

I always said I would never get married.

Then, after living with Ghost for nearly 10 years, we just upped and decided to get married. We've only had a couple of rows, and generally we get along well, considering we live and work together. I think I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of nights we've spent apart since I moved in with him.

But an expiration date on a marriage license kind of makes a mockery of 'till death do us part'.

It does kind of make sense, though. You could have a trial marriage, and let the license lapse rather than lining lawyer's pockets with a divorce. You could say 'yes' to marrying someone if you had doubts, because it would only be for X number of years (for the record, I think that if you have any doubts, you should NOT get hitched).

Sometimes I wonder if marriage as an institution is outdated, and we should be coming up with a better model for dealing with coupledom/ children etc.
