Temporary marriage?

What an oxymoron! But apparently, lawmakers in Mexico are proposing a two-year marriage license. Not happy after two years? Well, your marriage contract will automatically terminate. Happy and ready for another round? Then feel free to renew your contract.

First, marriage is a covenant, not a contract. As such it is not "renewable." It doesn't end (until "death do us part"). Secondly, since when is marriage simply about personal happiness?

There's plenty more to say, but for now, read Jennifer Fulwiler on the subject for more info.
