  • Both it takes more then love to marry. You have to step outside of the emotions and look at the person in a logical matter and ask does this make sense. Is this person and the way they're something I can handle for the rest of my life. Evaluating that person thoroughly is crucial. Too many times people let their emotions get them caught up and they look back later and say what the heck was I thinking? They were not thinking logically and that was the problem.

  • Both equally. You should love each other very much and logically be a good match. My husband And I have been together for 8 years, are happily married for over 2 years with one baby boy.

  • I married based on logic more than love. We were married for 7 years, and are going through a divorce.

  • Equally. We talked about everything we could think of from how to raise children to politics and religion to where we wanted to live. I think both of us knew that its really hard to make a relationship work and love is not enough to carry you through. We have been happily married for 6 years.

  • Me and DH have been married for 21 years. I think it's mostly based on love. There is some logic in my marriage, but love outweighs the logic.

  • i married cause i knew that no matter who i married that it would have to be a life long commitment from both of us. if he has the same beliefs and values then he qualified. i had certain standards i was looking for and he fit the bill. i didn't go into this marriage feeling he was perfect or that i could change him. i wouldn't do either. although we have our issues and they will continue to come were in ti for the long haul. we talked about what we wanted and our goals in raising my children and our children. i don't see logic working in my decision to marry but rather then the love and him being suitable. although he had to prove them to me.
