Questions: Divorce in the Vedic Culture?

Of late men and women of this century are regularly applying for divorces in the court of law. Does our Vedic culture permit this?

Answer: They Wouldn't Even Dream of It

In Vedic culture there is no thing as divorce because in Vedic culture marriage is so pleasing and satisfying that there is no question of divorce. Vedic culture is based on the spiritual conception of existence in which one derives unlimited pleasure by doing everything for the pleasure of the Supreme Person. It is in this spirit that one conducts his married life. Thus there is no question of dissatisfaction.

Our modern day culture is just the opposite. It is based on the pleasure of the material senses, and because the senses, like fire, are never satisfied no matter how much you give them gratification, in the modern day culture as soon as our senses get a little tired of enjoying one thing we want to switch the object of enjoyment to something else or, as in the case of divorce, to someone else.
