I'm married, so take this however you will. I'm ambivalent on marriage. I love my husband and I enjoy being married most of the time. But sometimes I think it'd be so much easier if I'd never gotten married. He feels the same way.

Marriage is hard. Your life is no longer your own. You have to run just about everything by your spouse.

However, it's rewarding as well. If you put the work into your marriage then you have someone to always share your burdens, who loves you, who makes you laugh. You have a person who you can depend on and vice versa.

I think it just depends on whether a person is ready for it or wants it.

GONE! GONE!
Meeeeh. I don't think most people who get married take it serious enough and I don't know if some people are capable of having a monogamous marriage ~forevaaah~.

The only reason I'd get married is for the legal benefits.

I like it, and want it. But only when we're both absolutely ready.

But hey, the best part of a wedding is the reception. LOL

It's not for everyone. My opinion has changed significantly on it in the last decade as I have since been married and divorced. When I was younger I thought it offered more security in the relationship and when it comes down to it, it's just as easy to leave a spouse as a boyfriend or girlfriend, it just costs more money and takes more time to make it official. Having done it once, I'd be happy just living with someone from here out. But if I were to meet someone I intended to stay with and being married was important to them, I'd probably do it again.

I'm a huge fan of it! Yes, it can be hard, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Both of us work really, really hard to make each other happy, and to also do everything we can to support the other person's growth as an individual. It's one big adventure!

Neither of us are religious, but we feel like the thing we want to look back on at the end our our lives and be proud of is our marriage. Not our careers, not our material possessions, but the character we built with each other.

It isn't for everyone of course, and I don't think anyone should ever feel pressured to marry. I don't believe people are missing out if they don't want to get married, just like I don't feel I'm missing out because I'm not religious. Go with what makes you happy.

I am married and I voted "meh." I'd rather not be married, but I'm not going to do anything about it for the time being.

I would say that it a wonderful thing and could be more wonderful if everyone could be married regardless of their sexual preference or lovestyle. It takes a tremendous amount of work but is totally worth it! I don't think it's necessary, mind you, a commitment begins in the heart but it is nice to have the option available. To my mind it should be more on the line of a contract for the legality but then it can be whatever the participants need it to be.

hey steady hey steady
My partner and I deceided very early on in our relationship that marriage really wasn't for us...way too much organisation, money and fuss! Because we both agree with this view point it isn't a problem, we know we are together forever so why spend all that money getting a piece of paper to say so. This obviously wouldn't suit everybody!

I love being married-But, it isn't for everyone. Sadly, More of the population these days don't want to deal with another person being their spouse.. but, I have no control over anyone's life but my own-So I cannot decide for anyone else.

I simply don't care to ever be married. Especially these days where divorce is so common. Most don't seem to want to work for their marriage cause it's easier to walk away. I don't see the point in risking all that expense.

Marriage takes responsibility and commitment and I know plenty of people that probably shouldn't be married, and plenty who do fine without it. That said, I know I personally would like to get married someday.

Ciao. Ciao.
I'm married and enjoy it, but it is definitely not for everyone and there's nothing wrong with that. Any long term relationship is going to have its ups and downs and requires work to keep strong regardless of whether it's legally marriage or not.

I'm married. I enjoy being married. But I'm not like "woohooo marriage is so freaking awesome!!!" or anything.
