Have you read the rest of the thread? What if the husband turns out to be abusive? Or what if two people who were really compatible from 20 - 30 suddenly find themselves not so attracted to each other's personalities at 35 or 40? How can you really forsee that? [/b][/quote] yes, I read that part, but I think people should get married because there is love between each other, not because the guy found attractive the woman. And when things don't work out, then there is a problem like you said "Do you think you'll be the same person at 50 that you are at 20?" or "what if the guy turns abusive", you are right about that couples should try to work out their troubles instead of divorcing. Well, that is what I think, 'cause I am not married.
