I've been with my SO for 3 years. We have recently started to talk about getting married...does marriage even still work?

I've been married to my husband for 7 years now, and I'm going to be honest. It's not peaches n' cream all the time. There have been obstacles that we had to overcome over the years, marriage doesn't come easy all the time. With it comes commitment, and unfortunately it's so easy to get a divorce now days and people don't want to work at it. The second a problem arises, they take the easy road and bail. It IS easier to just give up and hit the road, I've felt like doing that many times. But the fact is, marriage to me Sacred and it shouldn't be taken lightly. If you're going to stand up before all your friends and family and vow to love the other person for better or worse and sickness and in health you need to be prepared to honor it. Just keep that in mind. I love being married to my DH, I grow more and more in love with him over the years. It's the trials that we have faced together and conquered "together" that makes our relationship close and everlasting :)

I totally agree! 

Quoting Acid:

Marriage can work, if you want to get married for the right reason.

Don't get married just because you have a baby, or other children.  Love is a good start...but, not the entire foundation.

You have to make sure that you marry him because you want to, there is a strong foundation and there is love, affection and attraction.  Otherwise, you're marrying Mr. Right Now, instead of Mr. Right.  If you end up wtih the first guy, you'll be like the majority of women on this site.  Complaining and whinning about your useless husband who doesn't help.

Yes, but I don't think it should be a 50/50 partnership. I think each partner needs to give 100% ;)

We've been married for almost 9 years.

shake handMy DH and I have been married for 6 and a half years. We had a baby his senior year, went our seperate ways and then figured out we were meant for each other and have been happily married ever since we decided God wasnted us together and not seperate. It has been rough but what marriage isn't. It takes work, sacrifice and forgiveness from both sides, but it is AMAZING!!!

23 years and counting. :D Yea,we have had problems (like anyone else) but we are commited to one another and we know our marriage is number One in our lives. In my opinion,the key to a lasting marriage is respect for your partner. Respect covers every issue that would come up. Good Luck!

 Yes, I'm happily married
