Just read that news about a campaign for 'Marriage For 7 Years only" initiated by a lady policitian. Basically, after 7 years , the marriage expires, and it's up to the couple to extend or go.
Controversial... but... could work!
Need to explore further.
For me -
7 years too short.
At least 10 / 15 years 'bond' sounds more sincere.
What happen if you have kids?
Maybe, once you have baby/kids, you'll be 'bond' for life.
Afterall, you have a choice to not have kids.
But when it's really necessary to separate,
the divorce papers take over.

Glamorous politician wants law to allow 7-year itch
By Madeline Chambers (Fri Sep 21, 4:00 AM ET)
BERLIN (Reuters) -
Bavaria's most glamorous politician -- a flame-haired motorcyclist who helped
bring down state premier Edmund Stoiber -- has shocked the Catholic state in
Germany by suggesting marriage should last just 7 years.
Gabriele Pauli, who poses on her web site in motorcycle leathers, is standing
for the leadership of Bavaria's Christian Social Union (CSU) -- sister party of
Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) -- in a vote
She told reporters at the launch of her campaign manifesto on Wednesday she
wanted marriage to expire after seven years and accused the CSU, which promotes
traditional family values, of nurturing ideals of marriage which are wide of
"The basic approach is wrong ... many marriages last just because people
believe they are safe," she told reporters. "My suggestion is that
marriages expire after seven years."
After that time, couples should either agree to extend their marriage or it
should be automatically dissolved, she said.
Fifty-year-old Pauli, twice divorced, is a maverick intent on shaking up her
male-dominated and mainly Catholic party which has dominated Bavarian politics
since World War Two.
"This is about bringing ideas into the CSU and starting a
discussion," she told German television on Thursday after she had
unleashed a wave of criticism from other politicians.
Former foe Stoiber said she did not belong in the CSU and European lawmaker
Ingo Freidrich dismissed her views.
"She is diametrically contradicting our Christian, ethical values,"
Peter Ramsauer, head of the CSU in Germany's parliament, compared Pauli's ideas
to "the dirt under your fingernails".
Pauli, who attracted attention earlier this year when she posed for a magazine
wearing long black latex gloves, was at the centre of a snooping scandal which
eventually led to Stoiber, Bavarian premier for 14 years, saying he would stand
She said his office tried to obtain details about lovers and alcohol
consumption to use against her.
The CSU will elect Stoiber's successor as party head at a
conference next week. He will be replaced as state premier in early October.
Viewed as a party rebel, Pauli stands almost no chance of winning next week's
vote. The contest has been fought mainly between Bavarian state economy
minister Erwin Huber and German Consumer Minister Horst Seehofer.
The popularity of Seehofer, a 58-year-old married father of three, has suffered
from the disclosure that he had been having an affair with a younger woman who
recently had his baby.
