There are at least four 'reality shows' on right now that involve novel and unconventional ways for people to get married. Bad enough that such a serious ceremony and tradition is being undermined by being twisted into this grotesque form of entertainment, but the shows will pay for quicky divorces if things don't work out quite right. Divorce - a tragic and serious event being made light of repeatedly by multiple television shows. Millions of minds of viewers are being manipulated into a mindset that divorce is nothing serious at all, but is more of a mild inconvenience. This is what passes for entertainment these days. I don't know what the answer is other than to guard our own selves, families, and children from viewing this stuff. I myself am growing more impatient daily to see that just when I think it can't get worse, it does. From bad to worse. And then society wonders why our divorce rates are so high - I wonder, however, if "society" even cares much about it anymore. Apologies . . . had to vent. Even as a young person I took marriage and divorce issues very, very seriously having been the victim of parents divorced when I was 13 years old. Amicable as it was, simple as it was, and easy as it was, it damaged me horribly and changed the entire course of my life. Whether children are involved or not, divorce is a tragedy and there are always victims left in its wake. TV makes it look like divorce is a teeny paper shuffle at a lawyer's office, a quick wipe of the hands, and "merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream".
