Love and Marriage

In an advice column I read a couple of days ago, a guy was saying that he didn't want to get married because married people were not as happy as unmarried people. He has stumbled upon a great truth of marriage: marriage keeps you together when you don't want to be together. Unhappy, unmarried couples, unless they are seeking dysfunction, do not remain couples, and are thus no longer included in the category of unmarried couples. Like all contracts, marriage obligates parties to remain in a situation which it may not be in their immediate best interests.
