Their marriage was begun in a church and ended in a court.

Their marriage ensured that they would be taxed at a lower rate than being single, but not as low as an LLC, LP, or Corp, which, unlike marriage, can only be entered into for legitimate purposes.

Their marriage was in question with the Department of Immigration and Naturalization Services, as he didn't seem to be the type of person an American girl would want to marry.

The sacred uniting of a couple witnessed before God, not always everlasting, but with the intent to be. Though men say its the 'beginning of the end,' we all know they secretly want it too, if not why ask? - usually the best day of a woman's' life and will forever be remembered.

an outdated custom in the world today, that is fully supported by an archiac concept known as religion.

For some reason more and more today men seem to be the one's putting unbelievable pressure upon themselves to get married, when the actual outcome of the act itself has little to no benefit to men. Its basically agreeing to become a woman's new father, so her real father can finally say "Congratulations!" (translation: now she's your problem!). The stigma being its better to be in a marriage (even if you and your wife havent had sex in years, resent each other, and have kids that are a mess) then to be a single, middle aged man.

This definition has yet to take into account "divorce", which deserves a definition all its own, but since marriage leads to divorce needs to be mentioned with it.
George: Wow, so Steve got married huh?

Bill: Yeh, marriage after dating her for 4 months! You should hear him go on about it.

George: Go on about what?! He now gets to enjoy sex with the same person all the time. Thats like me bragging about the banana I have for breakfast every morning and how it gets better and better.

Bill: Hey I hear ya, I didnt understand it either. Good luck to him.

George: I mean if you rushed into it, I'd understand that, any woman willing to marry your gremlin ass you gotta run with, but Steve.....

Bill: You got me there, but that still doesnt explain what the hell I was thinking in banging your sister, least I pulled out and got her in the face for good measure.

George: I hear ya, like when you go outta town and I go to your gf's, its like a shooting gallery, and she's got a target right on her face.

Bill: Fuck you and your whore sister.

George: Not as much as I fuck your gf, bitch.

An affliction of the body and mind. Effects include isolation, desperation, sexual frustration, alcohol consumption, inability to communicate, and in extreme cases, physical violence or childbirth. Due to advances in modern medicine, many cases of marriage do not end in death.
The fact that you asked for an example is ample evidence that you've never experienced marriage.
