What does a marriage mean to you?

Well I know that a marriage is different for everyone. Some of them excel at it, as I assume you can say, while others are not so sure about it. What do you think a marriage is for you and your husband, or what will it be for you and your fiance? Or what do you want it to be if you aren't planning on marriage yet? I guess what I am asking is everyone's opinion on this, and I would enjoy lengthy responses. I love responding to people lengthily as well. Do you enjoy your marriage? Are you still as much in love as you were when you were first married? Do you or did you have communication problems that caused fights? Are you honest? One thing that has made me think is this question, Can you lie to your fiance/ husband/ bf?

This is a really good discussion baby,and marriage is a very important topic and I am sure that different people have different views when it comes to marriage some people probably think it is just something,and that if it does not work you can always get a divorce,and then I am sure most people see it as a lifetime commitment to a person,that you plan to spend the rest of your life with,and I can understand the views of both sides,I think marriage is a lifetime commitment between the two of us,and something that will bring us closer to God,and will help us see what God wants for us as a couple,I know we will enjoy our marriage,and I know we will be more in love after we are married,and I know we do not always communicate which causes fights,but we are working on it,and I know we are always honest with each other,and I would never lie to you,and I do not think you would ever lie to me,I can not wait until the day we are married,you are my best friend,my soul mate,my lover, you always make me happy,you are the sun in my life,and without you I would have nothing,I love you with all my heart and soul,have a great day,good luck with all your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

I am so glad that we both have the same feelings about marriage. I love the idea of marrying you and even though I am a bit unsure of how nervous we will both be on that day, I know that it will be the happiest day of our lives and that nothing can change the way I feel about you. I would never lie to you although there are times when I don't know whether I can share things with you right away but like the pastor said, that is just the feeling of being rejected. I didn't really realize how far somethings can be stretched like rejection, it's odd that rejection can still happen during a marriage. I know we will work out all of our problems though because we were meant to be together, and I do hope that we can impress everyone who knows us and be the example that the world needs. I love you with all of my heart and soul, and I can't wait to marry you and spend forever with you, through the ups and downs, and the black and white!

First let me say congratulations to you and your fiance on your engagement. I think that it is very nice that you have learned from your parents and uncle and aunts, and I agree that you shouldn't fight, and am glad that you plan to never fight with your wife. I think the best of couples sometimes fight though and it's what you do after the fight that counts.

..marriage is a sacred bonding of two people who are in love with each other.. as for me, i do love my husband more and more.. and I think he feel the same way with me as the days go by.. Of course, some misunderstandings will occur in a relationship but that's a part.. that's the exciting part because through this, you could test yourself on how much are you really going to give to your partner.. patience, open mindedness, love and care, and forgiveness are some of the most important things in marriage.. the primary for me is, faith in God because He was the one who joined us together.. I believe through Him, I and my partner can withstand all challenges that we will meet as we go in our journey together.. life is so meaningful knowing that someone is right there who is willing to share his life and precious time with you.. I lie sometimes to my husband.. but I think it is not a crime.. unless I made a mistake lying..

I really like the way you said about testing yourself to see how patient, openminded loving and caring, and how much you can forgive. I agree with what you have said except for the last part about the lying but then I don't know how much you lie, and I know that I have before to my fiance, or atleast I believe I have. Nobody's perfect though. I appreciate the response.
