I just read of this today (admittedly about the Duggard/Dillard marriage. I had never heard of it and don’t live in one if the four states where it exists. I have very mixed feelings about it. What do you guys think?

That sounds like something that would sound reasonable to young lovers in the honeymoon phase, but then fucking horrible later.

I never heard of it, but it sure takes the romance out of everything…

kl1987: What the actual eff? Nothing like staying married because you have to, not want to.

<br />I don’t see it as indentured servitude. Both parties enter freely and have the choice of a non-covenant marriage. It may be ill advised but it isn’t any sort of servitude. It actually seems to be more like a sacremental marriage that a church would require, with te state trying to enforce church like rules. You typically make a covenant before God, not the state. But, whatever. To each his own.

kl1987: Well.. it certainly forces you to decide you’re done with the person and your relationship. It’s a bit much and obviously not for everyone.
