    Is It Even Real?

    I'm a woman in her thirties who has never been married...I've never even been in love. I've been asked several times, but I knew it wasn't right. Maybe true love isn't in the cards just because I want it...maybe wanting isn't enough. Its just not out there.

    And Never Will Be

    I don't see the point in marriage. Why would you need someone else's approval? A lot of marriages end badly and there is that extra drama about it.If you truly love and trust someone and he/she loves and trusts you what more could you ask for?

    ... This Is What My Parents Think, Anyway! :)

    Despite the name of this forum, I have been married.  I was married to a terrific guy for five awesome years, and can honestly state that we never had a single fight in all that time.  There was no jealousy, no drama, no discord whatsoever, really.  We were the...

    And I don't plan on it any time soon!

    It scares me how people that have been married for decades and decades feel about marriage.. It seems like they want/crave everybody BUT the person they are married to. Then what is the point?? It confuses me and its not something that I look forward to as much as I did when...

    Well, for anyone who's ever met me, this has to be one of the least surprising things about me. May not be very surprising for anyone else either.

    Odd One Out

    I used to think I'd get married. It's just something that happens, one of those things that society seems to expect of everyone. Deep down, I like the idea. I want the security and stability. I long to know that someone else could be that committed to me. I've still got time...

    I've Never Been Married

    I haven't been married. A few females have proposed to me when I wasn't ready. For quite awhile I wasn't sure if I want to be married. Marriage isn't really important. Hope to get married though but there's no hurry for it. Some say I should be in a hurry cause I'm 61

    But I Wanna Be Someday.

    I long to find a girl, who actually likes me for once. Ask her out and actually get a yes. Like turns to really like, and really like turns to love. Then propose and get a big "Yes!". And then finally, get married. Sounds easy, but its not.

    Don't Want to

    I don't want to get married. This doesn't mean I want to stay single for the rest of my life, but I don't think this little piece of paper means that much in a relationship. And if she wants a wedding in church with a white dress, that is exactly what we'll do. And a ring on...

    I am 29 years old and I have never been married.

    I got engaged once but we broke it off due to differences. I believe in the institution of marriage and would like to get married to the man I love. I know I will make a good wife and I have the maternal instincts that will make me a good mother. I hope I find that man soon :) I...
