Well I am traditional I guess and still believe in the sacredness in marriage but I have my deepest respect for those that do not believe in it. I think we should always be able to respect whatever their decision is for their realtionship to work well on them.

I think it is a personal preference. If a person decides to be without marriage, it should be his own personal decision. It may not be a decision because of his situations. Some people don't prefer to get married becuase of their job or financial situation. That is pathetic. There are lots of advantages being single. When I was single, I thought that beign single is great and I can better enjoy the life than being married. I had a set of good friends with whom I lived. We had a wonderful time going for shopping, visiting beach, going out for dinner, etc. As time went by, some of the friends got married and the rest moved to other cities because they got better financial benefits. So, I felt alone and thought that it was the time to get married. Once I got married, I thought that I will never get back the freedom I had and my life will be always depends on my husband's life. But, it proved out to be wrong. I slept till afternoon on weekends, after marriage, as the same as I slept when I was single. The marriage was a great advantage because when I got up late in the weekend mornings, my husband was there with the breakfast and lunch cooked for me.

i still believe in marriage. despite the differences between my husband and i, and the many fights that we have had, including the one that we have today, i don't think i would just want to just live together as opposed to getting married. there is something about marriage. it is binding. not only legally, but also in many aspects. take care!
