I was talking to a few friends last night a mix of men and women. All in our 30's (not that age matters) The conversation was about marriage. I believe that marriage is a very important step in a relationship! Some of the guys think that marriage means nothing ?!?!? It doesn't make the love any more or less strong. It doesn't make the other not leave you. It doesn't make either not fall out of love. So the men just didn't see the point. The girls on the other hand think it's extremely important! Its professing your love and shouting it from the roof tops for all to hear! And the ring is a symbol an a reminder of you have given yourself to. Who you promised in front of friends family and God that you would love and cherish until death do you part... So is it true? Guys think nothing of it and the ladies need it ?

How much input do men generally put into their weddings? The groom and his groomsmen all wear boring tuxedoes. It's the bride and her bridesmaids who look all pretty and everything. Most men don't care what goes on at the wedding. Not that they don't give a sh*t. Not that they don't love the woman that they are marrying, but for the most part it is a day for the woman. Us men, we don't grow up with fantasies of our wedding days. That's a chick thing. Women see it as a natural progression. That's what you need in order for the relationship to feel real. You need to profess your love and shout it out loud for everyone to hear. That makes it all real for you. A lot of men don't need that validation. It's not that guys think nothing of it, or that their love for the women they are with is any less than what the women feels for them, they just don't need the validation like that. And then when you add that on top of the current divorce rate. How many people in the past 10 years had huge drop dead weddings, only to be divorced 5 to 10 years later? Men see that and they like why bother?0
