    A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in
    their bed.

    She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him.

    She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in
    front of him.

    He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.

    She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his

    "What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps into the

    "Why are you down here at this
    time of night?"

    The husband looks up from his coffee, "I am just remembering when we
    first met 20 years ago and started dating.

    You were only 16. Do you remember back then?" he asks

    The wife is almost reduced to tears herself, just thinking how caring and
    sensitive her husband is.

    "Yes, I do" she replies.

    The husband pauses.

    The words were not coming easily. "Do you remember when your dad
    caught us in the back seat of my car?"

    "Yes, I remember," said the wife, lowering herself into a chair
    beside him.

    The husband continues. "Do you remember when he shoved that shotgun
    in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter, or I will send
    you to jail for 20 years?"

    "I remember that, too" she replies softly.

    He wipes another tear from his cheek and says...."I would have
    gotten out today."

    Funny, thanks Frank.

    Why can't we do the fixed length contract thing for marriage?

    Couples could opt for durations of their choosing with an option to renew if mutually acceptable. The document could also include a no-damage clause should the parties opt for freedom.

    Of course child support and property issues would complicate, but these too could be pre-arranged and documented up front in the contract document a la prenuptial agreements already prevalent within our culture.

    Of course this wouldn't help us who are already "lifers" without the chance for parole.
