How do you think a marriage should be?

  • I think marriage should be about both people doing as much as they can for each other and their kids!

  • It all depends on the couple. My dh and I are old fashioned but that doesn't work for everybody.

  • If I stay home, I will do a lot of domestic stuff. When I work, I expect him to totally pull his weight.

  • I think it depends on the couple. Some are happy to live the old fashion way, some are more modern couples. As long as it works, that's all that matters, right? =)

  • I think marriage should be a partnership and friendship, where each spouse helps and supports the other in whatever way will bring out the best in each other. That means different things to different couples.

  • It should work for the couple and not matter what other's think.  


    I was raised to believe that a marriage was 100/100. Each person puts effort into the relationship to make it work. No one person was in control. It works for us.
