    This isn't really a debate.

    Maybe you'll get more responses in Homework Help.

    Q1. If the Church implemented a ceremony to recognize couples that have made a commitment to live together for a period of time in a monogamous relationship in what would be described as a trial marriage, would you take the opportunity to be recognized? Do you think other people would also be willing to do so? Trial marriage?

    A1. No...That's proposterous. That would just downplay the seriousness and finality that is marriage. Marriage isn't a matter of "trying things out". Which is why you shouldn't make the decision until you're absolutely sure without a doubt in your mind that this is exactly what you want.


    Q2. Do you believe marriage is more than just piece of paper and legal status? Why?

    A2. In my opinion it is more than just a piece of paper although not everyone shares that opinion. Marriage means something entirely different to anyone that you ask. People are too varied (In morals, beliefs, religion, etc..)to share the same opinions about things like marriage. If you were to poll 1,000 people I'm sure your results on the amount that consider it "just a piece of paper" would be higher than you'd ever think


    Q3. Please rate the following from most likely to result in divorce to least likely to in result divorce. (With 4 being the most likely to cause divorce to 1 being the least likely to cause divorce)


    Miscommunication or lack of communication
    Pre-conceived notions about the marriage itself
    Confusing lust for love
    Lack of mutual respect, concern, or commitment

    A3. I couldn't rate those. I think all of them play an equally important part in possibly ending a marriage.


    Q4. Please rate your feeling towards the following statement: People who are divorced are criticized and looked down on. (With 5 being strongly agree to 1 being strongly disagree)

    A4. (a) I only strongly agree if that particular persons family/close friends was strongly religious.

    Or

    A4. (b) If that person has a history of divorces


    Q5. Does pornography have a place inside a marriage?

    A5. No. It doesn't have a place in anybodys relationship. I dated someone who was bisexual and enjoyed pornography at one point. It did nothing but make me jealous and self-conscious


    Q6. Do you believe in "till death do you part"?

    A6. Of course


    Q7. Do you believe the media is responsible for the apparent disregard towards the institution of marriage? (i.e. infidelity, divorce)

    A7. I believe you are responsible for your own disregard. I hate when people use scapegoats. Especially the media.

    Q8. Is intercourse outside marriage okay?

    A8. Yes. Intercourse outside of love is not though


    Q9. Is promiscuity okay?

    A9. No. Especially not after marriage.


    Q10. Please select the age range in which you lost your virginity. (Optional)

    A10. 16 - 19

    Yes, because to see if you and your partner are compatible, and put up with each others habits/lifestyle etc.


    2. Do you believe marriage is more than just piece of paper and legal status? Why?
    Yes, because it's supposed to be a lifelong commitment. There's no point in getting married if you're not completely devoted to one another.


    3. Please rate the following from most likely to result in divorce to least likely to in result divorce. (With 4 being the most likely to cause divorce to 1 being the least likely to cause divorce)

    Miscommunication or lack of communication
    Pre-conceived notions about the marriage itself
    Confusing lust for love
    Lack of mutual respect, concern, or commitment

    Where is lack of sex? lol.

    Miscommunication or lack of communication = 1
    Pre-conceived notions about the marriage itself = 2
    Confusing lust for love = 3
    Lack of mutual respect, concern, or commitment. = 4



    4. Please rate your feeling towards the following statement: People who are divorced are criticized and looked down on. (With 5 being strongly agree to 1 being strongly disagree)
    I personally don't think that's the case, so I rate it a 1.


    5. Does pornography have a place inside a marriage?
    As long as the couple agree, in my opinion.

    6. Do you believe in "till death do you part"?
    It does happen to some couples who've been married for 50+ years, so, yes.

    7. Do you believe the media is responsible for the apparent disregard towards the institution of marriage? (i.e. infidelity, divorce)
    No. People divorce everyday. Only the famous reach the headlines.

    8. Is intercourse outside marriage okay?
    If you're engaged, yes.
    Wait, do you mean when you're married, or before?

    9. Is promiscuity okay?
    Fuck no.

    10. Please select the age range in which you lost your virginity. (Optional)

    1.

Do you think other people would also be willing to do so?


    o_o I would say 'No'..Not really sure what you're asking here..why would a couple put themselves up for a 'trial marriage' when they can get the 'real deal'? I don't think many ppl would want to 'try out' their marriage before actually marrying..they would probably just decide to live together forever..or get married (for real)


    2. Do you believe marriage is more than just piece of paper and legal status? Why?


    Yes..if it were just 'a piece of paper' then no-one would really want to get married..there obviously has more to it than the legal legal..but because i'm not married, i can't exactly tell u why it is more..seeing as i haven't experienced it or anything..however, i would imagine marriage is a sanctity..and it's more than just paper work..u have to really LOVE a person in order to be married to them..although, in today's society, more people end up marrying for artificial benefits..and then marriage becomes a business transaction (or a sake of convieniance) rather than what it is intended for.


    3. Please rate the following from most likely to result in divorce to least likely to in result divorce. (With 4 being the most likely to cause divorce to 1 being the least likely to cause divorce)



    Miscommunication or lack of communication - 3


    Pre-conceived notions about the marriage itself - 1


    Confusing lust for love - 2


    Lack of mutual respect, concern, or commitment - 4




    4. Please rate your feeling towards the following statement: People who are divorced are criticized and looked down on. (With 5 being strongly agree to 1 being strongly disagree) - 3




    5. Does pornography have a place inside a marriage?

    Depends on the marriage and the ones within the marriage. Some couples have no qualms about viewing porno to spice up their sex life..but the more conservative/old fashioned couples probably find the idea appalling.



    6. Do you believe in "till death do you part"?
    No..in real life..that rarely happens..times have changed..it's pointless believing in a notion that belongs in the dinosaur ages..nowadays..very few couple actually stick together till the end..it's better to be realistic



    7. Do you believe the media is responsible for the apparent disregard towards the institution of marriage? (i.e. infidelity, divorce)

    In a way, yes..when we see so many marriages are falling apart, we automatically think "If it's ok for them, then i must be ok for me" in the olden days, if u'r a divorcee, u get ostracized..so that was why ppl worked harder to keep their family/marriage together..but now..a divorce is no biggie..everyone does it..especially the celebs..so it's sort of like an incentive to get divorced.

    Further more, on TV, (soapies/movies etc) ppl get divorced all the time..so then it also plays a role in our sub conscience..and the amount of sex scenes make ppl want to go philandering around..and be unfaithful..and that lead to many break ups.



    8. Is intercourse outside marriage okay?

    Yes..again..times have changed..no one remains a virgin until their marriage night..it's old fashioned..plus, ppl have this idea of 'try before you buy' type of thing..i think it's ok..because what if u ended up marrying someone who sucks in bed?



    9. Is promiscuity okay?

    No..it's slutty..



    10. Please select the age range in which you lost your virginity. (Optional)



    13 - 15

Do you think other people would also be willing to do so?

    No. I think if they wanted recognition, they would've just gotten married in the first place.

    2. Do you believe marriage is more than just piece of paper and legal status? Why?

    Yes, I believe marriage is a lifelong commitment.

    3. Please rate the following from most likely to result in divorce to least likely to in result divorce. (With 4 being the most likely to cause divorce to 1 being the least likely to cause divorce)


    4 - Pre-conceived notions about the marriage itself
    3 - Lack of mutual respect, concern, or commitment
    2 - Miscommunication or lack of communication
    1 - Confusing lust for love

    4. Please rate your feeling towards the following statement: People who are divorced are criticized and looked down on. (With 5 being strongly agree to 1 being strongly disagree).

    2 - Maybe in some theocratic countries divorcees are looked down upon, but it doesn't seem to take place very often in Western Societies.


    5. Does pornography have a place inside a marriage?

    Sure, as long as it's something both partners enjoy.

    6. Do you believe in "till death do you part"?

    Most definitely; it is called a "vow" after all.

    7. Do you believe the media is responsible for the apparent disregard towards the institution of marriage? (i.e. infidelity, divorce)

    In what way? If anything, people seem too eager to get married, and they're just not ready for it. Then they end up getting divorced. I don't see how the media could be responsible for high divorce rates.

    8. Is intercourse outside marriage okay?

    My instinct is to say definitely not. But I suppose there are some couples who "swing," and their marriages are fine. I wouldn't recommend doing that though.

    9. Is promiscuity okay?

    Nope.

    Church? WTF has that got to do with my life / sex life / life partner?

    2. Do you believe marriage is more than just piece of paper and legal status? Why?
    In the legal sense, no.


    3. Please rate the following from most likely to result in divorce to least likely to in result divorce. (With 4 being the most likely to cause divorce to 1 being the least likely to cause divorce)


    Miscommunication or lack of communication

    None of the above. Being too young, ****ing around...these are more noteworthy

    Who gives a flying?


    5. Does pornography have a place inside a marriage?
    Damn straight. Well, if used by both. I take "marriage" as "partnership"

    6. Do you believe in "till death do you part"?
    Well, it makes you part, so it'd be silly to argue with the inevitable

    7. Do you believe the media is responsible for the apparent disregard towards the institution of marriage? (i.e. infidelity, divorce)
    The media is to blame for a lot of things. But not for modern attitudes towards marital servitude...oh sorry, as a good girl I should have said "fairytale marriage"

    8. Is intercourse outside marriage okay?
    Yes. No. Depends. Who's screwing who?

    9. Is promiscuity okay?
    It worked for me

    10. Please select the age range in which you lost your virginity. (Optional)
    Not telling. Early. But the obsession with virginity is disturbing. Don't do that.

    Haven't ruled it out with the right person, but it would take someone pretty awesome to let go of my independence, which I value...highly! Having a puppy helps neutralize any feelings of loneliness. I pretty much haven't felt lonely since I got her!
