Do you think marriage will change your relationship?

Im always curious to know if relationships really do change once you get married?

Do you think it might depend on how long you are together before tying the knot??

It seems to me that people become maybe too familar and relaxed with each other when they marry.
I don't like change at all and I HIGHLY doubt I'll ever want to marry.

We lived together before we got married, and honestly, the only thing that changed for us was his name got added to the check book

I really want to be in a committed relationship for 3+ years before I get married. Divorce and unhappy marriages are traditions in my family, so I want to be as sure as possible to find the right person before getting married.

My fiancee and I are looking forward to getting married. I think it'll change our relationship a little bit, but overall it should be pretty much the same.

Things were almost exactly the same after we got married. We were living together for several years before we got married, though. It was much more of a transition when we first moved in together, I remember fighting almost every day over the stupidest things!

We already live together and have been together for almost 3 years, so I don't think being married would be much different. We get along just fine no matter what we have going on, so I don't see us having a terrible relationship or anything after being married.

It's hard for me to remember, since we have been together so long. We've had so many ups and downs. But, I think things are better since we've been married. We have more time for each other, and certainly being able to fall asleep together after making love is a plus, whether living together or being married. I still appreciate falling asleep next to him, even though we've been together for more than 20 years and been married for.....a really long time.

Just hanging out, without one of us having to "go home" is great.

I think it depends on when and to whom you get married. I think if someone's meant to get married, it shouldn't change for the worse...

Having been married now for 24 years, I can say with certainty that marriage does change a relationship. Our love is stronger than ever, but going through all the changes that life hands you, knowing you are going to have good times and bad, definitely creates a different relationship over time.

My husband and I married young, but I don't think our relationship changed in ways that it wouldn't have changed anyway. Does that make sense? I mean, we'd still be just as committed to one another, even if we weren't married, so I think our relationship would have evolved along the same lines.

I don't really think its marriage that changes the relationship, I think its just time. We were together for 4 years before we got married and have been married for almost 8 years. Our relationship didn't change after we were married, however, we've changed as individuals over time. We were 19 when we met, 23 when we married, and now we're 31. So we were just kids when we met, over the years we've grown and matured.

Obviously every marriage is different, so...

In my case, we got married a week after I graduated from college, and two months after that moved 1000 miles away so we could go to grad school. The quick turnaround with those events added a lot of stress to out lives and otherwise made it difficult to assume a somewhat seamless transition (we also didn't live together before we got married). I suppose if I had to guess, I'd say that living together was a bigger transition than the actual marriage aspect of it.

We were living together before we got married, so the only thing the marriage really changed was my last name and now we both wear rings. We've been married about 6 months, so we still qualify as newlyweds and I'm getting tired of being asked how married life is, lol.

Marriage might have changed my first relationship but not with my current one with Anakin. I feel things are so much better with being married. It completed our family.

I don't think anything would really change in our relationship when we get married.

We dated two years and have been married two years. Things are definitely different! I miss the excitement and romance of dating, but love the security and commitment of marriage.

You know how they have the wedding toppers with the bride and groom? There's a gag one with the wife dragging the groom by the ankle to the alter. There is another (lesser known) one of the groom standing at the alter and the bride is turning away lifting her dress. Underneath the dress is a pair of track shoes. That's kinda like how I feel. I like where things are now... but marriage plain scares me. I am NOT the one pushing for that.

I think if a man marries a woman, she should give him head 5 days a week and anal twice a week. but we all know this is not how it is, which is why marriage is a scam!!!

I've wondered about this at times. I've lived with my boyfriend nearly 3 years now. It's hard for me to imagine what would change.

I'll be optimistic and say that things will be better.

It really depends on the relationship before the marriage.

it wont change the relationship but it will. like if you have a bad relationship its not a magic thing that makes it better, but it will change things, once we are married and have a house, he wont have to eat yucky food which will make him happier, because I can cook for him, and I will get to sleep by his side every night, which is something I can only do when I come back from college on vacations now.

I don't think it'll change our relationship much, if we did get married. Although I would have a ring to look down and smile at~

It depends on the couple and the reason for getting married I suppose. I don't think marriage will change my sex life, but having babies might. When you're up all night or have little ones running around constantly I'd imagine it would be more difficult to walk around naked through the house or have random spontaneous sex on the dining room table
