I'd been out of the house for a long time when I got married. We've been together 11 years, married 6. We took our time. No reason to rush.

I have no idea what getting out of the house and marriage have to do with each other?

I married for the wrong reasons. He's my best friend and I love him, but there is absolutely no passion there. Im not IN love with him. We've been separated about 2 years now

 Absolutely not. I so married for Love. What I should have done was waited til we had more than $50 between us. The earlier years might have been a little easier. I have been married 29 years to the same man. The good years have far outweighed the not so good ones. Marriage is what you make of it.

I already lived on my own and was financially independent before I married my ex husband and my husband.

I had a baby and got married to get out of my parent's house. Luckily for me I did love the guy very much so it has worked out. But since we didn't get married for the right reasons it took a lot of heartache and growing up to get to where we are now.

Both times, absolutely. The first, I wanted to wait, but we were very young, pregnant and his family put the pressure on. I allowed myself to be sucked in. Not even two years later, DIVORCED. The second time, I thought I was doing right by my DD, whom I got preggo with while on depo. BIG mistake. Never should have married him. Divorce is final next week. WOOT. With DF, well, we are not getting married for a while yet. We both have failed marraiges under our belts and we want to do this right. Although, now that I am with him, I totally get what my grandma meant by, "You will just know". She was right. It would be nice if she could have been a bit more specefic. Would have saved alot of time and court fees.

Nope, I knew when I met my husband that he was the one I wanted to be with for the rest of my life and now things are only getting better, except for me trying to quit smoking....I am kind of being a bitch right now:). We have been married for 3 years and I couldn't be happier. Sure there were VERY rough times but we got through it together!! I love him more then anything and I wouldn't change anything for the world!!
