Is there any reason you would marry someone you did not love?

Excluding people who have to marry out of a traditional arranged marriage.

It's very tempting to marry since that is the only sure way to get a relocation of my child granted. But...I want love so I wouldn't do it.

the only reason why I would marry someone I didn't love would be for money and that would be when I have no more heart or care for other peoples feelings. Which I find that hard to believe to happen to me before I die.

Yes.  I share a child with said person, so we married.  We are still together and trying to figure it out.

No way.

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

I have married to help a dear friend get his residency. We divorced 3 years later after he was granted his 10 year "green card". He went in to get his citizenship, marry a wonderful woman and have a beautiful family. I couldn't be happier with my choice to help him out that way.
