@Dark Overlord, the answer to your question is that quite simply, not as many men want that job as women. Likewise, more men want to be garbage collectors than women. It's elementary. 

Get it? Elementary? Elementary school?

I apologise. That was awful.

The phrase "It's like [x] on steroids." It was offbeat and funny to say once. That "once" was many, many, many years ago. It's long past the point of done to death now.

I really hate the idea of a divorce. Don't get me wrong, divorces aren't always bad. For example, if you're husband raped and murdered your 4 year old daughter, you should really divorce him, but divorces are so common in the US that more than half of all marriages end in it and it can be over the slightest thing, like arguing or not getting along, like as if you can't make things up. The person we can all thank for the popularization or divorce is none other than the sexist and corrupt Henry VIII who killed every wife he had that bore a daughter instead of a son, not a hero if you ask me. What especially pisses me off about divorce is that the law often requires children to have a way to see both parents, which shouldn't be the case. Marriage is the eternal bonding of 2 people, typically a male and a female, with god. This is how I believe a divorce should happen. First, you have a trial with a priest and a couple of other members of the church who vote on the situation. Next, the reason to divorce should only be very extreme, such as your husband raping your child or trying to kill you. After that, the jury gives you some choices, either they reject your divorce, make both of you go to marriage counseling, grant your divorce but prevent you from marrying again, or they give you your divorce and allow you to remarry.

I really hate the idea of being forced to stick in an abusive relationship. Or in a relationship that you want to leave no matter the reason.

People who believe their religion should decide what is right or wrong for my life.

Marriage is a civil legal procedure, often not involving any religious element, and you want your church to have a legal say on my relationships?

Interesting that you want to bin the First Amendment though. Bet you'd be jumping up and down in fury if I suggested tighter controls on the exercise of the Second.

Marriage is a very religious thing, why else would people marry because if you aren't a devout Christian, you can have sex and children and do all of the other married couple stuff without marrying, which I believe that most people should not marry because of this.

Because , at least where I am, it financially benefits you in later life if you marry.

Other religons have marriages.

Taxes are different when married.

Marrage became secular.

Got to think of a pet peeve everyone agrees with and I think I have an idea.

Rod Stewart's singing, Rod Stewart sucks at singing and although he has a couple of good songs out there like Maggie May, those songs are ruined by his awful voice.

How about if you're a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindi... as I said, imposing your religion on people of other faiths or no faith...

One of the major reasons people marry (other than the obvious "being in love" and wanting to make a public commitment) is that it provides a set of legal rights unavailable to those who aren't married - eg. a married couple is taxed differently to a cohabiting couple.

Ripping up the First Amendment to create an America based on your religious views, I shudder at the thought...

Sorry!

First of all, what does marriage and divorce have to do with the first amendment and even if it does have something to do with it, there are exceptions to our freedom of speech. For example, I can't go into an airport and yell bomb and there's a good reason for that, if we truly had freedom of expression, you could walk into Burger King and see a naked guy burning an American flag while chanting heil Hitler or you could be walking down the street and see a naked 65 year old asking 14 year old girls if they want to come to his house while he's putting bombs in other people's mailboxes to express how fed up he is with the post office or even worse, you could go into a store and hear someone say that they don't like The Beatles, there's a reason why freedom of expression can be bad and I think divorce shouldn't be allowed except in extreme circumstances, if you want to divorce, you shouldn't've put a ring on it.

Second of all, are you sure you know who Rod Stewart is because I can't believe someone would actually think he has a good voice, he sounds piss poor, like he smoked a whole carton of cigars and choked on a ham sandwich.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

The very first line of the First Amendment, @Dark Overlord. By giving your church a legal say on divorce, you would be creating an established religion...

Any piece of media that is confirmed to exist but is not on the internet, such as the 1969 Fat Albert TV special or Carnival Of Light , the internet could really use these.

Look at this family tree and tell me what's wrong with it:

treea.pngImage Enlarger

treer.pngImage Enlarger

If you're guess was that there are siblings born close together, then you're correct, I hate when a parent has a child and then have another one shortly thereafter, it really isn't good for the child and it often pisses the older child off. I am one of the many unfortunate ones, as my brother was born only 19 months after me, parents need to learn to take time in-between children.

Hell! Tell me about it!

I was a tried-for child. For about three years. So my older sister could have a baby brother or sister.

I was a struggle though. Just wasn't happening.

Then I did. Popping out on 8 May 1967, just in time to hear my Dad have a first sneaky listen to Pepper before wrapping it up to give it to her on her birthday on 3 June.

Don't remember much of my first listen, but have been told it happened and I gurgled. Not much changes. Just something different in my bottle now.

Anyhow, that's an aside, and I should

stay-on-topic

But, there am I, a tried-for child, a planned child, two or three years in the making, and as I'm exploring my world during that first year, learning how to crawl - increasingly faster - away from my big sister, Mummy gets fatter, and on 7 May 1968 I get a baby sister!

Hell! WTF! I'm not used to this and now I've gotta get used to this as well! Not even a whole year to get my feet under the table before I'm suddenly the middle child!
