If u get married, u will have additional responsibility right? u'll be responsible for ur husband/wife. ull be responsible for ur soon to be kids. thats why other people are afraid to get married because of that so called responsibility they are going to be involved in. if u ask me, im still willing to get married even if it calls for greater responsibility. are u willing to get married despite the responsibility???

I have been married for 3 years now ( I have been with this guy for 7 years total). We also have 2 kids ( 6 years old and 2 years old). There are countless responsibilites that comes with this. Keeping the house clean, cooking supper, laundry, getting groceries/house supplies, getting the kids up for school/making sure they are there on time, make sure they are doing their best in school, packing lunches and the list just goes on and on. I never really thought it would be so hard, its a never end job for a wife/mom, but at the same time its the best thing in the world.

I think that marriage is really an additional responsibility because your no longer thinking of yourself but also for your mate and your children as well. But marriage is not just a responsibility but a will to be with someone who makes you happy and feel great. People consider marriage as a bigger responsiblity but it was also a big decisions that you will do in life. I think that getting married will put your life in struggles and be happy at the same time.

marriage is an additional responsibility for an individual... No one should get married if he/she thinks is not ready for it or the person that he/she is going to marry is not the one that he truly loves...

Marriage is really a big responsibility. It's not just: you love each other, then let's get married, then happens next?. That's why always say you really have to be mature enough to handle married life. And life will not always be a smooth sailing ship. There will always be ups & downs and if you're not matured & responsible enough, then I don't think your marriage will work. Reagarding your question if I will still get married inspite of the big responsibility, yes of course. I'm now married for 2 years and we have been blessed by 1 beautiful daugther. Life hasn't been easy for us, we have our fare share of problems but it's good because we're always there to support each other.

Getting married, that's for sure, no question about it. Both parents accept to get married knowing that there will be responsibilities is because both want to commit to that. That's what marriage is all about, commitement, responsibilities and home teamwork. Two people that really want to make in life together, they got to put their hands together and work as home team.

I honestly don't see what the big deal about marriage is. I don't see how different it's supposed to be from just living together.
