Why are you married?


Are you married because you love your spouse or is it for your family/children?

I am starting to think that the only reason I am married is for my children, and I don't know if it's actually benefiting my children to only be together for that reason anymore.

  • I am married to my husband because I love him, I can't imagine myself without him. I was married before, and I realized I was just staying for the children - I divorced, and I've (and my kids!!) been much happier because of it.

  • I feel the same way as Scuba, I'm on my 2nd and final marriage, my first I stayed for my son and I was miserable and I finally realized my son deserved a mom and dad who were happy, rather than miserable together, not to mention I deserved to be happy. I'm so glad I finally left, and today I couldn't be more happier with my husband and my marriage

  • I am married because I am in love with my husband and I know my children will benefit from having an intact family.

  • Love

    That's it.

    Through 25 years of good, bad, downright ugly, and the downright fabulous.. It has been LOVE and love alone that has kept us together.
