Well I'm married so I don't really know if you want to hear from me.

I got married young and I'm still married to my husband. If I could go back though, I would have us still together but I'm not positive about the whole marriage thing.

I absolutely love my husband and plan on being with him for the rest of my life, but being married has definitely changed some things.

Hubby and I never planned on getting married.  We were living life just fine as a 'living together' couple, I could get on his insurance if I needed to.. there was no reason, we didn't see the need.

But then we decided to have kids, and got married basically just for it to be easier..


edited to add - we were together 9 years before we got married, we've been married 5 years now.
