Stupid. My parents shacked up, as you call it, for 16 years before they married. They've been together for 28 ears total. I'm not sure how that makes my stepdad a little boy?

I think that statement is stupid. I know of two couples who have been together, one 35 years, the other 30, and not married. The 30 year couple has 3 kids, all of whom are graduated and in college now. Both couples are incredible people who have built amazing lives together. Marriage is my personal preference, but it's not for everyone.

I guess they become men when they day I do?

Hmm

Why do so many act like boys even after those I do's?
Cant figure that one out


Quoting ImNotKarl:

Wow. I was unaware that people needed a legal contract of commitment before they entered adulthood. So I guess today CM taught me that for the males in our society, our right of passage is getting married. Learn something new every day.

I have been with my boyfriend for 9 years and we are not planning to get married for a long time, I don't think I have any friends that I grew up with that are still married to their original husbands. Plus I see all the issues my married friends have with doing taxes and legal bullshit that it seems like a waste. We live each other, we have a beautiful daughter together and that is enough for us. We are together because we want to be together, not because we have a piece of paper that forces us to unless we go through an expensive hassle to separate.

So being married changes "playing" into actually living it? How? Is there a Wizard of Oz black and white to color moment or something?
Quoting Anonymous:Yup. Little boys and girls play house.
Married because I have more respect for myself.

Me and dh "shacked up" and were very happy. We got married when we were both 100% ready. I don't think he magically switched from boy to man.. that happened over time for 6 yrs.
