Just Another Choice....

We made a decision as a couple and then did it mostly for tax reasons but also cause there was some form of love...somewhere in there..twisted maybe?

Was there ever a spark ?

Well IDK about twisted but certainly not a good idea.It probably cost more to unravel than the tax savings was worth.

Sometimes I feel like people do things to give their life direction and meaning. I think often times we feel lost, like our life is directionless, without cause or meaning. Then we do things like get married, buy a house, or have kids to give our lives a sense of purpose. Not that these things can't be wonderful and beautiful things.

is marriage a moral decision?<br />
i mean what is "til death do us part" but adultery is a "sin".<br />
and Man created the legality of marriage. divorce is so common nowadays, <br />
it is accepted. <br />
marriage should be a bond between two people.<br />
but yes, we marry for tax purposes. we're getting f***ed by the IRS instead of our spouse.

For the sake of morality, exclusivity to one another, and a normal environment for any children that you may have one day.

I wonder the same thing too.<br />
<br />
If I had of known what I know now, I would have never gotten married. I would have stayed single.<br />
<br />
My husband is a nice person, don't talk too much especially about his feelings and we don't argue alot. It didn't start off that way; but it has ended up that way.<br />
<br />
Yep, a typical roommate because that is what he has become.<br />
<br />
I guess I should not complain because I have a few friends who husbands don't support them, they don't work and they don't help out around the house. One is on drugs and he fights her. Another one will not work and he don't help out at the house when she is at work.<br />
<br />
At least mine will work and he supports the family and cooks. I don't cook and I don't clean. I have kids that do that.<br />
<br />
It is other things that are lacking in our marriage but that is a total different story.<br />
<br />
That's what makes me wonder "Why did I get married, Too?
