10. Then what about...
...people who marry for money? Or for social standing? Or political reasons? Or because they want to hide the fact that they are gay? Or procreative accidents? These all have a long tradition in a variety of cultures.

Let's face it folks, there is no sanctity in marriage. It has chiefly been a social contract carried out for a variety of reasons, a great deal of which have nothing to do with personal emotional attachment.
