- Wedding: May 2013
I want to marry my Fiance because I just can’t imagine my life without him. From the moment we met, we can’t be apart, we want to grow old together and I want to make him happy which makes me happy.
Any happy, long-term relationship can bring the emotional benefits of marriage. However, most of those do not carry with them the automatic legal benefits, rights and responsibilities that legal marriage brings. It would take hours with an attorney and thousands of dollares to write up and make legal the over 1000 legal rights and protections that come with the “piece of paper”.
While I was and am deeply in love with my DH, it was the legal side that concerned me. I refused to combine finances, establish a household with shared property or have children until we were legally married. I was committed and I knew he was, too, but society as a whole doesn’t always recognize that committment without a legal marriage.
Because my Fiance is my soulmate… There is no one that would put up with me and accept me the way I am like he does, I just know it! He is the most trustworthy man I know and awesome : ) I love him so much! After 7.5 yrs together and me graduating from college, we got engaged, and we will marry because it is important to both of us. hmm that’s pretty much it!
Because you’ve found someone you’re willing to love and be loved by for the rest of your life. To create a family with this person – not in the sense of having children, but in the sense of making them your family!
So he can get health insurance, and so I can get financial aid to go back to school.
However, those are just perks. We love each other and want the world to know we’re 150% committed for life.
Because you love them and want to celebrate the decision to stay with this person for the rest of your life. Also to mark ans celebrate a new chapter in your life ! My view is that they should be your best friend and accept everything about you, good and bad.. 🙂
My Fiance and i are building a house and will be married very soon after and ours is a celebration of us having our own home and moving forward with the next stage of our lives to make a family!
We have been together 9 years already (10 when we get married), have lived together for 8 of those years and were already in a committed, lifeling, loving relationship well before we got engaged! We are soulmates with or without the ‘piece of paper’, already own joint assets and don’t want children.
I guess our main reasons for deciding to get married are practical ones (financial/legal) but we also want to share a celebration of our love and commitment with all our close family and friends who have become so entwined in our lives over the last decade!
