Personally, the first time around I wanted to get married. That piece of paper meant the world to me...but that's just me. I don't think it's necessary for everyone, just what I wanted. If I were ever faced with another relationship after this one? No.
yeah, i would surely.
Sure! You don't have to be married to someone just to stay with them.
You can still stay together for a long time, even for life and not be married. Cohabitation, I think it's called. You can even still pledge your life and love to that someone.
Perhaps not recognized by state law or by most religions, but if it's from the heart and soul, it's still a spiritual binding. And for some, thats enough.
Deep down probably not, I'm a very emotional person, maybe not always outwardly so, but I'm very romantic as well, to be fully complete I would want to go the whole way with the person that I felt was the perfect man for me.
I think so.
Absolutely. To paraphrase The Compassionate Buddha, marriage is a state of mind.
yes, I am not a big fan of marriage
It works for me
