I see here a lot of so and married partners. We lived together until marriage knowing we'd get married. but hubby knew once engaged I'd only stick around for 6 months, no long engagement cuz I didn't want cold feet. i knew I wanted to marry my husband, I loved him but I knew I wanted marriage for more legal protection than just being his girlfriend. That's nearly thirty years ago. In this day and age is it better financially if partner should pass away or need a spokeperson in the hospital to be married instead of so? Is it better for children of a relationship in today's financially to have married parents than for parents to be so? I didn't marry for my husband's potential earning ability but yet I knew then that the law then had more rights for spouses in terms of finances. For example too, if you live with your partner as a so, can you still have joint credit cards. Prob., lots of women keep maiden names.

My DH was in the army when I met him. So just living with him was not an option..The army does not recognize girlfriends, only wives. So we married..If he PCSed I would not have been able to go with him as just a girlfrien.
