I dont really look at it that way.. Although since I got married I've had less time to go out and have fun, having my husband and daughter with me makes it all worthwhile.. And I guess that is just temporary since my daughter is still very young.. When she gets old enough then we could all go out together and have fun..

Yes, you're right. I guess, it all depends on how you perceive things. Good luck to your family, my friend.

If you look upon marriage as giving up your freedom, then you aren't ready for marriage. Marriage is meant to be a sharing and lasting experience. Most people need personal time and a proper marriage allows and respects that.

That's very true. Marriage is walking hand in hand with your partner as you journey through life together.

if you think of giving up freedom of doing what you want and your not thinking of somebody, well i guess it's like giving up your freedom. but in marriage you still have your freedom but you have your family to consider and to prioritise.

Not in my wildest dreams, my friend. If marriage is one thing that makes us happy, then marriage is actually freedom in disguise. We tie the knots, but we are going to share our life with the one we truly love, and this is called happiness... the true essence of freedom.

Nope. If a person thinks they are giving up freedom for marriage then they either aren't ready or are marrying the wrong person. I gave up more freedom by choosing to have a child, but it was a decision I was happy to make.

Marriage is not giving up freedom. I have been married for 34 years soon to be 35 in August and I don't consider it such. My husband and I are happily married and have mutual respect for each other. When we got married that didn't mean our personalities changed and one had control over the other. We allow our selves the freedom to be able to do things apart from each other. We combine our efforts on things that matter but are still able to be ourselves.

I agree with sunshinelady opinion, married is respect for each other and caring each other also, completing each other weakness and do not try to control each other
