  • Depends on the relationship. For mine it didn't change much. Just the fact that I have to divorce him if I want to leave and not just break up with him. Then leave. My husband and I were already living together for three years before we were married.

  • This depends...for me, it added a sense of stability to my life...I never wanted to get married or have children but once I did my whole life changed and I saw my life differently.

  • There are two things. First, it gives you legal rights. Second, it's a vow two people take who love each other and are willing to make a life long commitment. However, some people forget what that is and lose sight of why they married in the first place. I think the adding part is subjective. It varies from person-to-person. Marriage can be fulling if the couple allows it and does whatever need to be done to make it happen.

  • For me: stress, hell, pain, heartache, pregnancy, and my daughter is what I got out of marriage. One positive thing out of tons of bad, and now we're getting divorced.

  • Marriage isn't all bad. It is work, but any relationship is. To me marriage is making a commitment that is not there with living with someone. Having a "boyfriend" is something that you do in gettting to know someone or as a teenager, marriage is what you do as an adult when you choose the person you want to spend your life with.

  • I haven't quite figured it out yet, initially it was because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with the person I loved, the person I had my children with and on a legality note it made sense for us.
    However that being said in the last 3 years - its only brought headache, pain, loniless, frustrastration, stress, anger...there are some good days in there and we're working to make it better...but its a challenge.
