So I'm not holding out hopes anymore of finding anyone.

I like the idea of having children, but never always pictured a husband in the mix. I have a wonderful guy now... so who knows!

I already tried - married the wrong guy, stayed in it for ten years because I took my vows seriously and didn't want to be alone, finally got rid of him. Divorced two years this November, and I'm finally comfortable being without anyone.

Maybe again someday, but I'll be a better judge on the matter by then. After all, my friends tell me "You're not the kind of woman a man dates, you're the kind that a man marries."

Say what you will, but statistics in 2012 STILL show that a MARRIAGE LICENSE still ends up to overall higher family income, higher children achievement scores, less legal issues with both criminal and civial issues of all kinds...etc. I won't even try to make the correllation about why these things are true, but go research it yourselves.

Our daughter...very much a child of this decade, felt the same way and did the 1. Dating and career, then 2. Marriage, and now, some day, wants chidren. Anyone care to spell out why that way is, in any way, WORSE then he alternatives?

We wish everyone happiness, but for me, the "traditional route" sure seemed to work and since WE have a long, loving happy marriage, as did BOTH our parents and since our daughters in laws, likewise, have a long, happy marriage, we kind of set a standard and model. She is living that now. Maybe those whose backgrounds were different DO have reason to feel marriage "ain't what it used to be", but for us, it STILL IS.

We wish you much happieness in your quest for happiness. I guess I got lucky and found the right guy, off the bat. As young as we were...we still share morals, ethics, laughs and love in boundless amounts. Our similar tastes are FEW...actually. However, we revel in and enjoy our spouses moments of enjoyment in the things THEY want to do...and it always keeps things interesting!!!! He comes with me to all those cooking fairs and shows (he cannot boil water), but smiles and tastes and oooohs and ahhhhs all the same. I go with him to the Symphony (even though we BOTH enjoy ROCK CONCERTS TOGETHER), and I hug on him as HE ejoys his Vivaldi. It works. TOGETHER we have enough things we BOTH love to do (dance, Karate) that it all balances out beautifully.

I really don't believe there is such as thing as a "sole mate". I believe you grow together and can BECOME soul mates as you start with two POWERFUL and WELL ROOTED individual trees and then intertwine branches. Does that make sense? We always taught our daughter NOT to look for a man who can "complete her", instead become a STRONG and COMPLETE WOMAN and look for a STRONG AND COMPLETE MAN...in that way you have TWO strong, complete people COMPLIMENTING each other, not two unbalanced "half people" struggling to hold each other up which IS what so many couples are. (I cringe to hear "I would be NOTHING without him". How nauseating and even SCARY if true). Get the idea?
In our home, I am a fully competant, highly trained professional woman who could do just as well on her own as married. He is likewise a strong man and even if he cannot cook, he would do VERY well on his own if he had to. THAT is why we have had a CLOSE, LOVING and MUTUALLY RESPECTFUL marriage for well over 30 years...with VERY little fights or disagreements. It is why we stay married for LOVE and AWESOME companionship (and super great sex) and not for dependancy.

I'd like to be in such a loving, trusting, and open relationship and have the certainty that I could dedicate my whole heart to someone.

I already am married but I remember growing thinking I never wanted to get married. I still think its scary but having spent over a year living together 24/7 without killing each other I knew it was meant to be.

I'm unsure. I haven't been with anyone that I could stand for that long.

I do. It's legal in New York, and god forbid if either of us got severely ill, we'd be able to be there in the hospital. Among other rights EVERYONE should have regardless of orientation.

Of course, it's not entirely a legality thing, I DO love her enough that I would enjoy spending the rest of my life as her wife. <3

I hope I get married. I just want to be with someone that I can spend the rest of my life with and be happy. I really don't picture myself living alone for the rest of my life.

I don't, not that it would matter if I did. Same-sex marriage is still not recognized in most states.

We've been married for 19 years, we prefer to properly wed instead of just living together.

I felt the same way about women, but I just so happened to get lucky and met someone older by a few yrs (43 here) and now I want to marry her. I never thought I could find someone without kids, without baggage and damage or mental illness at my age.
