I used to hear lot of comments about being married, something like - This will change after marriage, you will be out of conatct with your friends, marriage will change your life style and -------------------------. Do you really think it happens?

Hi Sarahruthbeth22, there is nothing as to scare about getting married. All the changes that happens in life after marriage are for good. You will be a responsible man, thinking many times before you commit something wrong, you know that someone is waiting for you. You can always be in touch with your friends however need to have priority and limitation. definitely your family gets priority on all other things. Cheers to married life :)

I know that marriage isn't or me . But with that said I know I could be with the love of my life for the rest of my life. I just won't marry him. That way we are together because we want to be not because we Have to be.

I imagine it changes a whole lot. Your on a sort of team I suppose. S team to help each other "do" life and stuff. So a lot of the decisions you could oh so easily make alone when single, you can't do that. You have to see how the other person feel about it. Where your go to spend your day and stuff. I imagine a wonderful feeling of security comes with that as well. I don't think you have to lose contact with your friends, though. Unless someones mate and friends don't get along, I guess it could happen then, though that would probably start before the two are wed.

My friends used to ask me the very same question when I was newly wed. They did very knowingly ask me as to how much did your life change after marriage. They also enquired about my habits. They asked me we habits I cast and we were forced upon me. But one thing is true that life does change and changes a lot espcially after marriage. Suppose, now that I am married, I know that there are some sea changes in my life. Before marriage, I could go out with my friends for a longer period of time. But now, I have to be back on time and can't spend much time outside. Not because of any untoward reasons, but that I have got someone to care for behind me and that someone is waiting for me at home. I also had to shed things that I very freely could do when I was a bachelor. That is one side of my story. The other side too is not that bad either. I got some good habits that I had to, to impress my wife. After all, it is all love what counts. But I think, all in all, I am quite happy with my marriage. And I think, life does change. If you see it positively, then life changes for the good. As they say that when a woman becomes a mother, she has a second birth. The same goes for men and marriage. When a man gets married, he too has his second birth - quite different.

What an excellent topic to discuss. yes the life does change. Now you have a responsibility to shoulder you know that there is someone waiting for you. you know that there would always be someone caring for you. now you know where to head straight after 8 hours of work... you home. now you know that giving is more important than taking... now you know that life is lovely.... now you know that its better to eat at home rather than at hotel.... now you know that my room would be the best clean and best kept by someone who cares.... now i know that i have someone whom i can trust and whom i can always ALWAYS ALWAYS trust. THE LIFE IS FILLED WITH LOVE AND LOVE IS IN THE AIR. I Love my wife :) i love my kid and i love my family. i know its a different life that i am living... GOD TUSSI GREAT HO....

Yes, it will change you much. So if you still collage, so finished before marriage. Because if you marriage you will concentrate to your hubby and your children. If you finished your collage so you just get working at office. Get marriage mean 2 head become one. Running time in accordance with age, it will make you must to be mature. It will change your style. You will to busy to taking care your family. Same as your friends, they must have the same problem.

Life does change a lot after marriage. At least you will be much more responsible and mature. You will pay more attention to your family. Especially after you have children, then you will have to spend more time for your children and hardly have your spare time. I love China

After marriage there is certainly some change in life style in that you get to close to new relatives and friends. This new circle brings in new commitments and responsibilities. You get to know new people to deal with.

It depends on what kind of relationship you have before you get married. If you've never lived together, then yes, it will definitely change once you get married and start living under the same roof! But I have friends that were living together for years before they got married, and once they got married they said it really wasn't all that different. As far as losing contact with your friends and changing your lifestyle... I think that happens once you have kids!

hello, There could be some changes,but,it's not about "life changes",maybe a little adjustment. You can still live the same way as before. The changes only is...you are not alone(single)but married,and with responsibilities. Friends will always be there,why need to disperse friends anyway? Life style?.a little changes maybe since you have to be wise with money spending,for future kids. In my case,my life doesn't change with too much difference. I still had my friends around me,my family and relatives. My husband and kids were even an additional...to happiness and even share with dreams and hopes. Have a good day always

Yes, there will really be a lot of changes when a person gets married. I am still single but I am very much aware of this fact since I always hear from my relatives and friends about this thing. Marriage is something you should learn to love despite of some difficulties along the way. If you will get married, you will have a child and make a family of your own. Of course, you need to attend to the needs of your family, especially your child. When you are still single, you are free to do whatever floats your boat, unlike when you are already tied to someone. But of course, not everything will change. It will still depend on a person if he/she wants to change everything about his/her life. Meeting with old and new friends even when you are married can still be possible, though it may not happen very often than usual.
