MoraithAgreed. It is a truth to say soThu Feb 10, 2011 7:28am184.108.40.206Though, IMO, the failure doesn't necessarily imply fault or the need for guilt. As I don't think I've read the thread that prompted this post, I'm not exactly sure of the context, but at the very base of it, if there is a divorce, the marriage has failed.
There is a caveat, though. When I officiate weddings, I do not say anything along the lines of "Til death do you part". Instead, I say "For as long as your love shall last". IMO, anyone who was married with a command similar to what I use and they divorced, then I would have a hard time saying that was a failed marriage, because they are separating when the love has gone.
- My question was prompted... donk, Thu Feb 10 6:45amby the deletion of part of a thread. Could be, it goes without saying that divorce reflects failure, but still, it is the truth to say so.
