  • Marriage is a promise, an oath.

    I don't know about other girls but I take my word and my promises seriously. That's why I always hesitate to give it out and think things over.

    I don't believe in divorce, if I get married, that's it, there won't be a divorce even if we get to be really unhappy later on.

    You don't marry a person thinking they are going to make you happy forever, you marry a person because you think you can take on *anything* together, as a team.

    It means you need the utmost faith and loyalty in one another, the willingness to listen, to compromise, the ability to lead when the other is down and the humility to accept help from your partner when you can't help yourself. There is no room for selfish pride here, only the grace you can get from truly loving each other.

  • For me it means a life long commitment, something that your 100% sure of and no wishy washy feelings. It also should happen(to me) only if the two are completely in love and have been for some time(as in years). To me marriage is very special and should not be toyed with

  • I don't want to get married. I believe it's outdated and completely unnecessary. I can have a family out of wedlock easily. It doesn't make a difference at all. I can feel the same sense if security with a partner. X

  • i expect respect and love and loyalty, honestly, caring, someone who will always support me and my decisions in life. but also someone who will point me in the right direction when I need that.
