As I see it Not anymore... More and more people are choosing a partnership and not marriage. Sometimes it has to be because of the cash settlement of a divorce, people n…owadays think first about divorces and then about marriage. People no longer trust that a marriage would last
family, education, economics, religion, and political sectors.
The concept of marriage predates Christianity and the other two forms of Abrahamic religions, Judaism and Islam which share a common origin and common values. Marriage is very… ancient dating back beyond recorded history and was practiced by all people of many cultures, ethnicities, and belief systems. The prevalence of the concept of marriage came to the forefront of culture when humankind evolved from hunter gatherer to agriculture and pastoralism which occurred during the Neolithic/agricultural revolution about 10,000 years ago. Originally "marriage" was a private, binding contract between clans (families) to form an alliance, thereby increasing the clan's chances for survival in war against rival clans. A "dowry" was given by each clan to "seal the deal". Marriage was contractual, considered a passing of "property" between clans as a symbol of intention to honor the agreement being made. Property took many forms: cattle, land, children, whatever was considered to be of great value at the time. In the United Kingdom, a requirement for a public announcement in a Christian parish (banns of marriage) was introduced by the Roman Catholic Church in 1215. This set the precedent for marriage as is recognized by the Christian community. The origins of marriage is NOT religious, nor does it have anything to do with the God of the Abrahamic religions. It was around way before organized religion which by Christian standards means it is PAGAN. Christians "borrowed" many pagan rites and rituals so Pagans would convert more readily and easily to Christianity. In modern times in the United States, before a legal marriage ceremony can be performed, one must obtain a marriage license from government authorities. When a legally married couple seeks a divorce they must go before a judge to have the marriage annulled. Ministers and priests do not issue legally binding marriage licenses, nor do they have the legal authority to grant a divorce. The religious concept of marriage has nothing to do with the legal concept. Church and State are completely separate in the case of the institution of marriage.
Marriage is only important if the person thinks its important.... Marriage for some is very important for religious/personal reasons and to others marriage is of no importance… at all..... In the USA marriage(by the state) is nothing more than a civil contract that both people agree to enter into which grants them certain legal benefits not available to those who are not married(by the state) such as tax deductions, equal rights to any marital property they aquire and several other things not available to the unmarried.... The civil contract of marriage(by the state) can also be difficult and even costly to disolve depending on state laws,even if your spouse never worked during the marriage and had no income at all they could be entitled to 50% of all the assests even though they never paid for one single item,they may also after a period of years be entitled to 30%-50% of your pension,IRA's,401K's ect even though they never worked and contributed to retirement...they may also be entitled to get spousal support/alimony and then you still have to pay for them to sit home.... Hence why now a days you see more and more couples living together or getting married in a religious manor rather than getting married(by the state)....

God's creative work was not complete until He made woman. And then marriage and family became the basis of society, the central organizing unit. God could have made woman from… the dust of the ground as He had made man. God chose, however, to make her from the man's flesh and bone. In doing so, God illustrated that in marriage man and woman symbolically become one flesh. Marriage is a foundation of any civilized society from which springs property rights, inheritance rights and legal responsibility which are all civil legal rights. In ancient times, marriage created a unit and that unit was the man. Within that scheme women had no legal existence. Modern societies no longer adhere to that mode of thinking. Wives and husbands each have equal legal rights in the modern Western World.
I know one for sure is family.
History is not an institute of society. Institutions may be considered private or autonomous, whilst culture and society, produced by collective human choice.

Does the fact that an increase in divorce rates indicates that marriage is no longer an important social institution?
Answer Answer: I'm not aware the divorce rate increased. I thought it's been about 50% the last 20 years. It appears marriage isn't as important as it once was b…ecause more couples are living together common-law.
Definately, the religious institutions remind people that human race is superior than any other species. Religion cultivates qualities of compassion and love to the fellow liv…ing creatures of gods creations plus preserving natural resources and puts them to the best utility. This is the core spirit of 'Hinduism'.
