    If What You Seek Is Not Within You You'll Never Find It Without

    People seem to think that they've got this love thing correct when they've found a person to marry and not when they've sorted out how they see love. I think I have the most objections with the "institution" or "establishment" of marriage when it comes to seeing love as a...

    As my sister put it, "4 years undergrad.

    4 years med school. 3-7 year residency. And that's something I actually WANT to do. Why the Hell would I add a whiny man-child to that mix who will want to constantly **** AND expect me to work like a lackey being Suzie Homemaker while he sits on his ***?" The beauty of living...

    Everytime I hear the word,

    marriage, I think of Shirley Long from Money Pit "Why do we need a piece of paper from the state of New York.' but marriage can make or break a relationship. There's so much more to life and if you get married to fast and young, you'll miss out on experiences so enjoy life...

    Contracts and Love Are Mutually Exclusive

     When I look at it, I think what that piece of paper changes is the fact that you're not together because you love each other anymore. You're together because you have a contract. Someone once said, "If you love something, you must let it go. If it returns to you, then...

    Marriage isn't for everyone,

    simple as that. I would love to be married one day but at the same time, people my age do not take marriage seriously. There are going to be days where you fall out of love and just can't stand the site of your significant other. That is when you have a strategy for falling back...

    Not Essential To A Relationship

    i think if two people love each other then you don't really need marriage to validate that love or to show your level of commitment. marriage won't make you love the person anymore or make you more committed to the relationship then you all ready are. and plus if the relation...

    Why do I need to get married?

    I'm happy with my partner and we are not married. I don't need a ring to show my commitment. Plus it saves money. Who says we won't move on later in life? Again, saves money with that cost too

    I don't believe that I need a legal marriage to

    solidify the way I feel about someone. I feel that just being together and living in the moment should be enough on both sides. If I ever find someone and we stay together until the end, great. If not, that's okay too.

    I think it is a legal price of paper,

    so the federal government can poke n prod into yo personal affairs. I think you can love someone n make a commitment from the heart. I shouldn't have to advertise my love life to big brother! lol not many ppl feel that way. but, I'd rather have a real relationship, than an empty...

    Marriage, Schmarriage.

    We're raised knowing that when you grow up, you get married.  You find yourself a nice person, you date them, you fall in love, and you marry them.  You have some kids, get a house in the suburbs, and live happily ever after.  Both of you are so committed to each...

    Not Necessary At All

    Two people who are in love don't need a piece of paper to validate that love and they shouldn't have to prove their love before God or anyone else.

    I've been married for 9 years.

    Divorce is pending. Though we've agreed how to go our separate ways, financially, possessions , living arrangements, and kids. It is still burden and worrisome. Marriage is nothing but legal hoopla. Personally, I'd rather wake up with someone each day with someone knowing I am...

    Why do you need a contract between two people

    who want to live together, have sex with each other, and maybe make babies? Seems an ancient antequated idea of thinking of reliability. Tend number of divorces proves it's a ridiculous idea.

    A Lifetime Decision?

    Many people get married while they are in their 20s. "To love and hold, forever. Until death." Why? Why the pressure to make a 'lifetime' decision so young?? And why the pressure to 'stay in the marriage' and 'make the marriage work'? Are there any other decisions we...

    people devoting themselves to each other for as long as they live, but I feel marriage is a way of requiring someone to stick around. Maybe it's just me who imagines living my life as an island, such as only providing for myself. I'm not trying to sound selfish or anything, but...

    I've been married. Most of the time it was good,

    Never plan on having one,

    I don't think you need a piece of paper,

    a ring and a big fancy do to show someone that you truly love them. I think it's better for people to love eachother without having to show it in such a materialistic way with rings and gifts..
