Seven Year Itch

A German politician wants a law to allow marriages to automatically dissolve after 7 years. Seriously? Apparently so.

She has virtually no chance of getting elected but she seems to be using every publicity grabbing tactic she can come up with.

This is just one more example of how the sanctity of marriage is being trod upon.

    Some people scare me, like that German candidate you cited. Some think that change is good for its own sake. (Not!)

    I don't understand. One of the guys she is running against has had an affair that resulted in a child. Maybe he should have been given the 7 year itch option. I don't know which would have been better. Just an observation.

  3. I don't think either candidate truly understands the importance of marriage. If they did, they wouldn't be so glib about dishonoring their vows (the adulterer) or just making them useless (the 7 yr. committment). The difference is that the adulterer isn't trying to make it into a law.

  4. I think it should be a law that everyone who stays married for 8 years should get a free massage every year thereafter.

    Does anyone take these people seriously? She's being highlighted as a weirdo, not a rational person with a thought-provoking viewpoint which should be discussed rationally. I think marriage is safe.
