What made you feel you had to marry your husband instead of just living with him?

  • I married mine because it was the right thing to do in my eyes. I've never lived with someone without the "benefit" of marriage other than the couple of weeks before we got married (I needed to be here to do the wedding thing and I lived in another state). Our state doesn't recognize common law marriage now, so later in life, that piece of paper will mean a lot to me financially but mine was more of a moral decision.

  • Lol...nothing...we're not married. I think if we were religious or if our families pushed it, we might have when we had our first child.

  • nothing, i lived with him for 4 years before getting married to him and we got married because we love each other and i wanted to be able to share his last name. But personally in my opionion, i think it's a good idea to live with someone before marrying them so you know how well you mesh or not.

  • We lived together for a year before we got married and we got married because we wanted to not because we had to.
