  • I have pretty crappy finances and some weird medical concerns that I do have to deal with for the foreseeable future. Marriage, for me, is not beneficial as a legally binding arrangement. While I would like my spouse to have some of the benefits that come with marriage (like rights to my SSDI stuff and hospital visitation privileges), I don't like the idea of my loved ones being stuck with all of my shitty bills in the event that I die.

    I'm not 100% sure if your spouse is stuck with your debts after you die, but I don't want to risk it.

    Would this stop me from performing some kind of marriage-like ceremony for the social benefits? Of course not. I'd gladly jump the broom or get hand fasted or any number of marriage-type ceremonies.

    Unpopular opinion alert: I think that marriage and civil unions should be different things (marriage having a religious/social context whereas a civil union being a legal binding between two parties that bestows what we think of as "legal marriage benefits"). So, I wouldn't get civilly unionized because of legality, but I would marry the shit outta some people.

    Anyway, weird musings aside: if other people wanna get hitched/tie the knot/whatever, let 'em have it!

  • Marriage gets a bad rap because too many people rush into marriages without making sure that they have found the right person, and too many marriages end because people want to simply give up instead of working to make a bad marriage better. If you find the right person with the right attitude, marriage can be wonderful.

  • if you'd asked me this time 2 years ago, i would have said yes. but who i am now says no, because i'm finally in a relationship with someone i trust and who i like enough to want to marry.

    for the first time in, well, ever, i can't wait to get engaged/married. my other half and i are hoping to be both by spring 2017, so i guess we'll see what happens (it's not an if, it's a when). :) <3

  • Yes, I would. I've been single for a lifetime and if the right man comes along, I'd like that very much. But if he doesn't, I'll have to be ok with being single. I'm not interested in being married to the wrong man.

  • If I want to have kids or am about to have kids I will. I think you should to grant your kids privileges that it can have when the parents are married/or were married. Otherwise it will be depending on me only - which is not a bad thing - just would like my kids to have the privileges it gets when parents are married.

    When I can't or won't have kids, I would like some kind of ceremonial/ritual thing that would present our love for each other ^^

  • I am married but if it ended (death, divorce, whatever) I wouldn't get married again. No point, I did the baby thing already and that is the point of marriage for me. My Husband is my absolute best friend and my soul-mate, having a marriage cert didn't change anything for our inward relationship just made other people take it more seriously. Like I said since I am not having anymore kids I wouldn't need to do it again.

    • Yeah. I don't think I'd ever remarry after my 1st divorce.

    • @dwright9224 Exactly, I'm just looking to settle down and cohabit, but not legally marry this time. It's simpler, and if you ever find out your sweetheart is dishonest, you don't have to worry about divorce. You just go your separate ways.

    • Yupp. That is very true. I'm still very young. So I still have plenty of time before I get married.

  • I'm not for or against it. If people want it they should have it and if people don't then they shouldn't.

  • I'm for marriage but I am impartial to the idea of me marrying anyone. I think people on average and society as a whole functions better when marriage is commonplace. However I don't think marriage is for everyone. I don't think unhappy people should seek out relationships as a cure to their unhappiness. I don't think being in a relationship is inherently any better or worse than being single. I think they both have their cost and benefits and people should try their best to understand those cost and benefits and decide if they align with who they are as a person. I don't think anyone's worth as a person should be tied to their marital status. But I do believe if people are participating in the dating world (including friends with benefits and frequent one night stands) that some form of permanent stable healthy relationship should be an eventual goal otherwise it reduces people to simply being a tool for self-gratification. I think relationships create some of the biggest risks of emotional (and mental) damage and if people decide to actively participate in that world they should do so responsibly. I've never quite understood the people that act like they need sex but avoid relationships. To me sex without any kind of connection to relationships is just masturbation with fancier equipment. What's the point of involving another person? I always felt like people that always seek out sex are really looking for a relationship but afraid to admit it for whatever reason. Fortunately, My opinions are only my opinions not facts or laws and people are free (to a certain extent) to act as they wish. Which is why I'm impartial towards me marrying. I don't really believe I'd function well in a marriage based on my past relationships (which weren't bad they just weren't any better than being single). However, because people are all different I can't say that I'll never meet someone that will convince me to want to marry them. If I find someone who makes me consider marriage I will but as of now I'm not actively looking.

  • It's best to avoid women...

    This includes dating and relationships. Marriage is the most dangerous though.
