Excluding people who have to marry out of a traditional arranged marriage.
money. Like a shit ton of money
Yes. I share a child with said person, so we married. We are still together and trying to figure it out.
I had the chance to marry for money. A nice guy, too. If my life were terrible and I had THAT low of a view of my self-worth, then I might have. But I didn't. I couldn't. I wouldn't.
I was engaged once before my DH. It was to my DS's BF. We said it wasn't because of having a child together, and honestly I DID love him, but I was young and stupid and naive and really wanted to be a happy little family (something I didn't have growing up).
I actually made out pretty good =) I married an OCD nerd with some cute quirks that loves me unconditionally whom I can't imagine my life without. And although we worked our way paycheck to paycheck while we chugged through college with kids & work... Here we are making big bucks! No WHAMMYs !!!
I don't think I could marry someone for anything else besides love.
i know a lot of people of a certain age that have lost loved ones, they marry out of companionship. To not die alone. Insurance reasons, etc.
No reason for me
For others because of money or because they have a child with that person
