I think marriage is Outdated Keith Taylor exclaims,he continued… I’m 69 years of age and I never married. My partner and I have been together since 1975, we have no kids and nothing but death can tear us apart.
At first her parents objected (I’d left home some years before and had no contact with mine), but that did not deter her. I am seven years her senior and have been able to teach her many things she would not have known had we not paired up.
In time her parents had no choice to accept that we would never marry, but we are happy together, never fight about anything and our wills are made out to benefit each other when either of us meet our demise.
Many of our friends and acquaintances are divorced, some multiple times. Others are unhappily trapped in a relationships they would rather be shot of, but for various reasons cannot separate. Had they not married, they would have been able to come sort of arrangement and part ways.
Therefore, in my opinion, marriage is an outdated institution.
