Seriously... I've never been married. I've been engaged for 2 1/2 years and I'm dragging my feet on picking a date. I don't see what the big rush is. I've already got the house & kids. We've been living together for 4 years... what is going to change other than my last name? oh, and the fact that the house I've put 10 years of equity into will now be 1/2 his...
Not trying to be a marriage hater - I really want to know what the "up" side is.
I guess I've seen too many divorced people in my family to want to go jumping into it.

If that is how you feel about marriage might want to look at the relationship you have with him. Sometimes we drag our feet because we really don't want to spend the rest of our life with the person we are with. I was with a man for 7 years I loved him and thought he was the guy for me. We lived together and had combined our lives. When we got closer to our wedding day I realized I loved him but wasn't in love with him. We split up and 6 months later I met my current husband we married less than three months later and have been happily married for 25 years. I wanted to marry him right away never had that feeling with the other guy ever. Might not be your situation but I have found for many of my friends who have lived with people for more than 3-4 years it was even when they had kids.
