Seems as though who ever said that thinks the 'work' aspect of marriage might outweigh the benefits.
Marriage takes compromize. It's a partnership and takes two people who are truly committed to it to make it work. It's not for the selfish or for the faint-hearted but if you're with the right person it's totally worth it.
it is, especially if you are the only one putting all the effort into it!
yes it is. which is why i will think long and hard before doing that again, marrying the right guy also helps a lot, lol.
Most of us would agree with you...... but then again most things in life take a lot of work, its up to you to decide what you will put your energy into and what you will let go.
marriage is really a hard work if you want it to work out. but if you are in a happy marriage, you don't feel that it is "work" at all...
