2 part anthropology discussion board

This week we are talking about marriage and family. Many people in the United States confuse marriage and weddings. A wedding is one day, while a marriage is expected to be the rest of your life, until death or divorce. Marriages can be religious or secular. They provide some economic stability when it comes to sharing assets, buying cars and houses; access to medical care; as well as providing for children. But with approximately 1/2 of all marriages in the U.S. ending in divorce; what are your thoughts about having marriage licenses expire every 5 to 10 years with an option to renew or not? It would be changing the ‘until death do us part’ clause. What would this do to the ‘institution’ of marriage? Also think about ‘common law’ marriage (living together for 7 years means you are married in some states) when discussing this weeks topic.
