  • We'd still be together, no doubt, but no we would not be married.
    Married changed him greatly. Which in turn changed me. Not so much for the better.
    I questioned whether I even thought marriage was worth it before I even knew him. I married him because at the time I thought it was the right choice. Looking back I see that marriage means nothing more then government recognition to your commitment.

  • I love being married, and I would absolutely do it again. My Dh is my best friend, and we've fallen deeper in love over the years. We've seen the best and worst in each other and are stronger than ever. We've changed each other for the better!

  • We got married when we were 18 years old, 13 years ago. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My husband is an amazing man, my best friend. We have been through some horrible things together (mostly health problems) and I'm not sure if I could have gotten through all of it without his love and support. I would marry him again in a heart beat.

  • We got married a year and a half ago, but it's made things better. I mean, we'd be together anyway, so I don't get what the big deal is. What's the difference between living together and raising a family and being married and raising a family? With divorce rates the way they are, obviously a lot of people don't see marriage as a forever thing. I do, but that's a personal viewpoint. Either way, we'd still be together, and this way (he's in the military) I can live on base with him, have benefits, and not have to go through nearly as much red tape and rough moves and I would otherwise. I'd definitely do it again. He's the only guy who has put up with my crazy mood swings, and I'm the only girl that's been able to keep him interested :) We work well together, and really do try to bring out the best in each other. He's my best friend, so what more could I ask for?
