However, what I tryed to adress is, that I find it strange to see marriage as a matter of staying physically healthy, as if it where a medical drug, instead of a bond for life between complex individuals with their very individual and complex needs, hopes and wishes.
PS: And by the way, love is an emotion, not an action. You do not decide to love or hate someone. Emotion is the result of experiences. You may have influence on your experiences as they are the result of your actions.
