Long-term comprehensive astrological and numerological charting supports the theory that there exists predetermined beginning and concluding times, time limits, for all love relationships. Therefore, though people try, marriage cannot
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
http://www.happyandsingletogether.com is a new social network community for singles who want some or most of the benefits of a traditional marriage or a marriage-like relationship, but not the drawbacks.
1. There's no such thing as an all purpose relationship model (like marriage) that serves the needs of everyone. Founder and CEO of http://www.HappyandSingleTogether.com Stephen Petullo is a former matchmaker and the author of a book about soul mates. His new, free social network fills a need: "I've had the opportunity to observe the dynamics of countless love relationships. I've noticed that many people may be better off (and happier) not trying to conform to our society's currently accepted, yet unrealistic, model of marriage or a traditional marriage-like relationship."
2. Stephen's identical twin brother, Scott Petullo, supports Stephen's observations with his extensive metaphysical research and says, "Long-term comprehensive astrological and numerological charting supports the theory that there exists predetermined beginning and concluding times, time limits, for all love relationships. Therefore, though people try, marriage cannot "lock in" a rewarding relationship. Also, everyone has many soul mates and if a relationship feels like it's over, it very well might be."
3. Many marriage customs and rules are now outdated. Centuries ago, marriage was primarily about survival, money and property. Sex or love usually weren't even considered part of the equation, initially. Marriage was also a way for couples to avoid "living in sin," since sex, in many cultures, was seen as evil and wrong, even within a marriage.
4. The high rates of cheating and many people simply aren't naturally monogamous. They may be able to conform temporarily, but to expect strict monogamy for a lifetime is about as realistic as expecting a nun to enjoy a swinger lifestyle.
5. It's not reasonable to expect one person to meet all of your needs and wants for the rest of your life.
6. Traditional marriage is no longer necessary. But is that fair to women and what about children? Kids need responsible parents, and a marriage certificate does not guarantee this. In fact, a couple trying unsuccessfully to fit into the traditional marriage mold can be harmful to a child. Instead, Stephen recommends his members create a child contract, which is an agreement two or more adults form that, unlike marriage, puts the child first. It also financially protects the main caretaker of the child, before having the child.
7. People change and grow (or regress) at different rates, and the concept of marriage and the expectations that accompany it don't take this into consideration.
8. The sky-high expectations and demands of marriage can complicate or even ruin a good relationship.
9. 50% of marriages end in divorce, and many couples who remain together do so not by choice.
10. Not everyone is meant to have an ideal, compatible, relationship with one person for their entire adult life as the modern marriage model dictates. Trying to go against the natural, unique dynamics of any given relationship, if it's not meant to mirror what marriage says it should be, will result in unhappiness.
11. Even if two people love each other now, it doesn't mean they still will in 10 years.
12. You don't need a marriage license in order to experience a happy love life. If couple needs a marriage certificate to keep (or bind) them together, they may want to reconsider if they are truly compatible.
13. Marriage today almost always involves more conditional love (i.e., "I will love you if…"), and less unconditional love (no expectations of anything in return), which is the highest form of love.
14. There is a better option. The new, free social networking site, http://www.happyandsingletogether.com, is a community for singles who want some or most of the benefits of a traditional marriage or a marriage-like relationship, but not the drawbacks.

- Singles who aren't willing or able to get married.
