Now all of you that know me know I'm not, but what did make you want to get married to your Mate,S.O. or Husband and Wife (whatever you call them) when you did? When i married the first time it was because i had strict parents and that was my only way of getting away from them..(back in the olden days we were scared of parents)..the second time was cause i was told by the guy we were going to..and i was still foolish enough to listen to Him.. Now you know why i'm happy and single!!! Passes fresh brownies again..

Well..... They DO say that marriage is an institution! And I've been told for pretty much my whole life that I need to be institutionalized..... So voila!

Course she is Irish! She puts up with ME! She's a good 'un alright. All we can ever ask for in life is a partner that loves us for who we are. No games, no acting, no having to worry about what you say or do all the time..... Just being yourself is enough. She's my everything, no question! I am very lucky.

My wife and I had been a couple for a copuple years before we married. We had lived at her mothers house for a few months before hitchiking to Minnesota. We had talked and decided we'd not marry at all. Well we got pregnant in a years time since that discussion. Her family nor mine wouldn't help out to buy a crib etc etc. Her mom said if we were married she'd help us out finacially. So we got married a few months later. Her mom sent us a nice check for the coming baby. That was almost 31 years ago. I say I married my wife for her money. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I got married because he asked me. *L* I laugh, but it is true. I wanted a stable home, he offered me one. I took it. Hey, it has worked for 31 years, what can I say? Hasn't always been the easiest relationship, but it hasn't been all that bad, either. I guess there are about as many reasons for getting married as there are people getting married. What ever works, stick with it. What ever doesn't get rid of it!

wow again interesting person's discussion. How you are managed to get married twice in your life. I don't know how it is possible for many people in this world. I can't be more stable enough to do another marriage or I feel something happy with my current on going life with my partner how its possible I don't but we are running long so far 4 years going to be get completed.

That's an easy one for me..... I was crazy in love with a great guy. I was at a crossroads in my life, the future looking very bright, my dreams just waiting for me to go achieve them and I could not even imagine my life without him in it. He was at the same crossroad, dreams taking him in a different direction than mine so we tried that for a while. Long distance relationship, etc. but very soon realized that nothing made sense without sharing experiences with each other. We started planning a wedding and a way to be together before the actual proposal even took place. All we knew was we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and we wanted the rest of our life to begin yesterday. 20 years later, with more than our share of tough times, relationship wise, we are still going strong. And he is an even greater guy than I initially thought.

well let's see... i'll be married for 6 years on the 6th (bob marley's bday) and let me tell you.. it's certainly been interesting... : ) my husband and i got married a little earlier than we'd planned because he ended up getting deployed to iraq. both of us wanted to be prepared if something went wrong, and it really just made sense at the time. i was handling all the bills and the house and everything and he was making the money... there was no reason that i should have to get a visitors pass everytime i wanted to buy groceries on base. we lived off base at the time... so... we've been married 6 years now, he's been to iraq 3 times, and we lived in germany for three years. getting married was totally worth it and i still love my husband as much if not more than the day we got married. being a military spouse was not easy by any means, but knowing we were married - as opposed to just dating while he was over there.. lessened the worry a bit. thnaks ! m *picks up a brownie*

I don't know what in the world made me think I was ready but I got married (and managed to stay that way) at 19. I just felt ready. And boy was I in a hurry! We planned our wedding in a month. I guess whatever little voice was telling me to get married was right, because after 13 years, I'm sure not wanting to do it again!

I'l get married last year.I know that mostly women, marriage is their dream to become true.As a man i also love to be married because it is sacred for me.They say that marriage is a setting of companion until your last breath. For me marriage is a lifetime commitment, a responsibility, an honor, a gift and a blessings because i believe that a good husband or wife is coming from above.

my first marriage I was just young, stupid and pregnant LOL my second marriage he was truly my knight in shining armor except his trusty steed was a ginormous pick-up truck hehe he swept me off my feet and treated me like a queen so it was only natural that i say yes to his proposal looking back I think it was just a case of hero worship but hey 10 years later we are still going strong LOL

well, we are pretty much of an age, but I have never married I wasn't afraid of my parents, they were happy if I was happy and never pushed me to get married. I was kind of serious about one fellow and the only thing my mother ever said was "I'm too young to be a grandmother." I replied "not happening" and it never has...

I was only married once, I guess I just wanted to be married, my younger sister got married before I did, and that bothered me, I also got pregnant and that made me want to marry as well.

I was never the girl who dreamed of getting married or having a wedding I just said if it happens it happens if it doesnt oh well, but I met my fiance and knew he was the one for me, and I was still a little scared at first and didnt know if I was ready but now that we have been engaged since last July and are getting married in 4 months I know it is the right thing to do and I am ready for it.
