    Ultimately that’s the goal for us anyway. We just happen to have it fairly easy ourselves as we are. Obviously we both want for more but aren’t hurting for anything. It takes a lot of strain out of a marriage.

    Not wanting to marry doesnt necesarily mean that person is looking for a way out... I am common law with my girl, never thought about ways out. Marriage doesnt change that.

    I can see both sides here and I think it depends on the person. Now that there isn't any accountability in marriage I'm starting to not see the point. If you can undo it just as easily as it's done why even bother with the wedding expenses. I will say, if kids are involved, it's your responsibility to suck it the **** up, be an adult, and work it out. Unfortunately society is full of a bunch of selfish pieces of shit these days.

    Getting married allows you to have additional aggrevation, less disposal income, less sex and less interesting sex...its great.

    We were together for 7 years, married for 4. How badly could it go you ask? Well, when I finally threw her out she was pregnant with #2 that was not mine and was drinking and doing drugs while pregnant. I had to wire tap her cell phone and the landline because everything that came out of her mouth was lies and deception.

    She came from a rough background but really seemed to turn things around during the early years of our relationship. Then a couple years into the marriage she basically reverted to her old life. Luckily she turned her life back around quickly after we split and we now have an amicable relationship and share custody of the kids.

    I’m atheist and would like to get married. I agree with everyone who says it’s about giving 100% of yourself to someone. If you don’t have marriage it’s just to easy to walk away when things get hard. If I marry someone it’s because I without a doubt found the women I am suppose to be with. If I can’t find that certainty with whom ever I’m dating then I won’t marry that person.

    Sure, when you get down to basics it is just a piece of paper. But it is more, at least when it is the right person.

    You make a public commitment in front of friends and family. You put faith and trust into a person.

    I think the meaning has become skewed since so many give up and turn to divorce so quickly.
