None of these options…what?!?!?!
I don’t think anyone on here would say any thing other than the first option.
I would like to vote for both 1 and 2!
Marriage is a commitment and a promise. It’s bringing 2 people together and making one, a family (even though our family will be just he and I) and it was important to me to be married. When he asked me to move in with him I said I would with the promise of getting married in the near future. He said yes, I said yes then we both said I do!
He is my best friend. He has gone through hell and back with and for me. We know each other inside and out. I feel safe with him. I feel it is a very special and important step for our family to take. We have beautiful twins together and one on the way. I love his heart. I love his soul. <3
As we were driving home last night after celebrating two years together, my FH described me as the female verison of him and he couldn’t imagine a life without me. I love that man more than anything. I can’t imagine not growing old with him. While he already insists we are married, it’s important to both of us to do it in front of god, family, and friends to “officially” bring us together as a family.
My answer isn’t on there– legal rights. Not that I’m not heads over heels over DH, but that would be the case with or without a piece of paper.
ETA: I’m going to vote “for money” on the poll, cause that’s the closest. We save tons on taxes and insurance and all that…
Oh I think people would say those other options….ever wonder why divorce rates are so high these days? It’s not always roses and fairytales.
I am completely in love with my fiance, and we have been together eight years, so we felt it was time to make a more permanent commitment. Then when we started talking about marriage more and even looked at rings together, my mom got really sick with a terminal illness, which crunched down our timeline quite a bit. (Otherwise, we probably would have gotten engaged over the summer/fall instead of the spring and had a longer engagement stretching into 2013.)
Because he wanted to have kids and it was important to me to be married. Otherwise, I was just fine dating forever.
We are getting married for a lot of reasons.
Only one of them is on there.
@jatelynn: For some reason, reading that, I immediately thought of Wuthering Heights where Cathy realizes how much she loves Heathcliff and how he is like part of the same being:
“I cannot express it; but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is or should be an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of my creation, if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff’s miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning: my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He’s always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”
The topic ‘Honestly, why are/did YOU get married?’ is closed to new replies.
