What do a new study on cohabitation and Gwyneth Paltrow's "conscious uncoupling" mean in light of a Christian understanding of marriage?

And on using the word uncoupling instead of divorce, I think marriage and divorce both are done a disservice. If divorce is merely uncoupling then marriage is merely coupling. I'm not sure my wife would appreciate hearing it put that way, and I know I don't!

Cheers,

P.S. I <a href="http://wp.me/p2EmLc-1Pb">wrote on divorce last week</a>, in the context of comparing no-fault divorce to same-sex marriage and how this plays out in living out my faith while carrying out my duties as a trial judge.

I think the word "coupling" cheapens the whole concept of marriage. I cringe at because it elicits thoughts of a man and a woman merely coming together for the sole purpose of mating. I believe God instituted marriage as a microcosmic representation of Christ's relationship with the church...
