I feel really sorry for people who can't talk about commitment without insisting on marriage.In the modern age, marriage is usually a crutch, a way to enforce commitment rather than nurture it.One unfortunate reason for marriage--weddings--are huge parties that are made out to be incredibly important occasions. They aren't. The fantasies of little girls, fostered by former little girls, shouldn't be encouraged like they are.Similarly, as some sort of litmus test for "true love"...there *isn't* true love...the whole idea of true love diminishes the importance of actually trying to grow a relationship. People end up thinking "it wasn't meant to be" instead of "maybe I should try something new or see this in a different light."Some traditions are meant to die. Especially in a world in which one person is not necessary to watch over the house and kids.
