  • What I think marriage IS to most people, and what I think it is SUPPOSED to be, unfortunately are two different things. To me, marriage is supposed to be a holy union between two people that love each other enough to make vows to become one for the rest of their lives. It seems like too many people don't see marriage that way anymore though, so instead it's become a game. Whether the game is played for money or some kind of sick personal gratification, it's sad nonetheless.

  • Marriage is supporting each other in any way possible left each other up when feeling down doing these that would make them happy wake up and think what is it I can do to make his day better in return he will do the same. Marriage is not controlling nor is it over powering the other..It is about sharing life, growing together. Thats what marriage should be but not all marriages are like that. You deal with what  you can handle.
