As you grew up, was the idea of marriage an important goal to you?

Was it personally important, did you admire your parents or some other couple, or was it something you wanted to do because people get married and you didn't want to be different?

  • I always wanted to be someone's wife not a baby mama nor did i want to be a single parent my mom raised 3 girls on her own and she worked hard so we didnt struggle or atleast see that we were struggling to make it! I never wanted to have to go thru that or for my kids to go thru that. Plus Marriage always seemed like what we were supposed to do even though many of us dont do what were supposed to do (me included) I just thought it'd be better if i were married

  • It's something I've always wanted. My parents are not together, so that isn't it. I dunno, I've just ALWAYS pictured myself as a wife and mom.

  • My parent's weren't ideal. They just did not get along. To be honest, if getting married wouldn't have saved us $500 a month in car insurance we may have not got married, just lived together.

  • I honestly never thought about getting married when I was younger. I have thought about it with 2 of my ex SOs but it never happened it just wasnt ment to be but I dont know why so many girls dream about their weddings when they get older. It is just something that is beyond me.

  • I knew I wasnt having children until I was married, and looking back I think I had that thought process because that is what I saw around me. Get your degree, get married, and have children.

  • honestly marriage and having a family has been important to me since I was a child. I always just wanted to grow up and be amommy and a wife. Not have to work and stay at home with my kids, I am married do have children but do have to work so I got everything I really wanted minus staying at home with my kids. It's somethig I gotta do though.
