Sheesh - 7 years is a long time. Who the heck wants to start over if they don't have to? Stay married.

I have an acquaintence (I don't know if I would characterize him as a friend) who seriously 100% believes gays are causing the downfall of western civilization...


As for that 7 year thing, wtf??? So if a couple wants to stay together would they let it expire and remarry?

Did he go down to his bunker with a tinfoil hat and lots of bottled water and canned soup on New Year's Eve '99' too?


Sorry, I don't mean to be disrespectful, but that kind of crap pisses me off.


As for the 7 year marriage issue, I suppose the couple in question would have to file for a new marriage license or something along those lines. It seems pretty ridiculous to me though.

Throw in a company car and I'm in.

So are you going to re-up or not?


I would think the religious right would be all for it...after all the divorce rate would decline dramatically.

Oh they don't care about the divorce rate, the sanctity of marriage is still intact as long as those gays aren't getting married.

I have thought of something like this too.

I never fleshed it all out.

And this plan has lots of holes.

If marriage were 5 or 7 year agreements with options to renew for the same term it might be interesting, all the financial aspects would need to be provided for, also child custody and support.

But those things also need to be mediated when marriages are dissolved or for that matter don't even take place.

If each spouse knew their contract was up in 7 years they might put more effort into it at year five
to assure their option was picked up.

Also, with the dissolution already negotiated we could end these terrible divorce battles.

Also, why would you want to marry someone that would not agree to a reasonable dissolution agreement up front if you did not want to renew with them?

It's only a money grab. Fees every seven years.

Some things: She said she just picked seven years because of the seven year itch and because statsitically most marriages get divorced after seven years. But it was just a figure and she would be fine with another one as well.
She also said that 50 percent of marriages get divorced. I don't know if any of these numbers are real.
After that time you just have to renew. She didn't speak about fees, but as far as I know German fees it probably would be around ten to fifteen Euros.
It would only go for legal marriage, not church marriage.

It's not to be taken seriously, and won't happen.
Before she often spoke about politicians talking too much in "speech templates", and she wants to break this rule. So a commentator of the Spiegel I read guessed that this part of her proposed program was just to proof her attempt since all the other points she laid out were things that would make her electable and fit right into the program of the CSU.

As said in the article she won't have a chance to get elected the new party leader, so she probably uses every last chance to get some media attention since she is only a county commissioner.

But I think no screenwriter could have written a better script than what happened and currently happens in Bavaria.

I've been married for ten. . .I wouldn't have wanted to mess with the hassle of "renewing." I have enough trouble paying taxes!

I think some people miss the point of marriage. It's the whole idea of sharing a LIFE, your whole life, ideally with someone. There's a level of trust, of knowing your spouse, of planning your future, of knowing someone will always be there for you, that you just won't have with 7 year "terms."

cool. At our last meeting of The African American Community we re-nominated Jesse Jackson as our spokesperson. Yep. . .all the black people in America were there as usual.

Isn't it great being part of a group that thinks in lockstep and has it's "agenda."

Our most recent census in Canada just showed that for the first time ever, married people are in the minority. 51.5 % of adults over 18 are not married.

Other family stats in Canada from Statistics Canada

* For the first time, there were more families without children (42.7 per cent) than with children (41.4 per cent).

* The number of common-law families surged 18.9 per cent since 2001, to nearly 1.4 million families.

* Common-law families now make up 15.5 per cent of families, while 20 years ago, they only represented 7.2 per cent.

* Twenty-six per cent of families with children are headed by a single parent.

* Of the 1.4 million single-parent families, about 20 per cent are headed by men. The number of men at the head of single-parent families is growing more than twice as fast as the number of women.
