Marriage ... it ain't what it used to be.
In promotion of its upcoming show Satisfaction, the USA network polled its viewers about their thoughts on tying the knot. 43% of Millennials agreed that they'd be more interested in a trial marriage or "beta" marriage.
This would consist of giving the nuptials a two-year tryout – or lease, if you prefer – and if at the end of that time you and your partner weren't feeling it, you could simply dissolve the contract and go your separate ways. No muss, no fuss.
33% of the people surveyed said they would be happy with what researchers call the "real estate approach to marriage" where marriage licenses are given out for either 5-, 7-, 10- or 30-year intervals, and at the end of the allotted time terms could be renegotiated or the "marriage" could be dissolved without consequences.
