Marriage has come a long way from where it started. In western culture, marriage was not always a ceremonious event. It started as a verbal agreement between two people. Your word was your bond.

And the woman walks away without a slap on the wrist. When a man rapes someone, the penalty is severe. That is to discourage the crime. If there is no penalty for

If you ask career women if she presents challenges to men, she may say no. Yet, there are many unmarried career women who claim they cannot find a suitable mate. For example, in the late 80s, the Wall Street Journal did a story on a small group of women in their mid 40s. Those women went on a crusade to help young girls avoid the career trap. These ladies had never been married, no children and no prospect for a husband. When asked, they said they wanted marriage and children. So they traveled around the US to

Most relationships fail. That means they never make it to a committed partnership like marriage. Before it goes to a life long commitment, the relationship dissolves and the couple will go their separate ways. Even when they make it to marriage, many of those fail. Why?
