1. Do you believe in marriage?
answer: believe in marriage? is that like believing in santa claus or believing in a politician? i'm not entirely sure what there is to "believe" in. see answer to next question to understand this answer.

2. What is marriage to you?
answer: marriage is a legal thing. it allows you to be considered "a unit" for legal, political and business purposes. there are definitely benefits to be married but they have nothing to do with love, relationships or anything else.

3. If you are married, why did you do it? If you are not, why have you not married?
answer: for the benefits afforded and because it is the socially acceptable thing to do.

4. Do you believe in divorce?
answer: again this is a legal, political, business thing. but since you can get married, there are reasons to get divorced as well.

5. If you are divorced, why did you do it? If you have not, are there certain circumstances under which you would agree to a divorce?
answer: i divorced my first wife because we agreed that we did not want to be "a unit" anymore.


Bonus (as in optional): [ed note:I am not trying to spark a get political debate, I am much to superficial for that]Do you believe that same sex marriages are a threat to traditional marriages?
answer: a threat to a legal, political, business thing? no.


editoral comment: if these questions had been asked about relationships or love, my answers would have been completely different.
