Before you read on, just keep in mind not ALL marriages don´t last.
I have seen marriages that have lasted for more than 50 years. Of course marriages are worth it, that was what God wanted, for both men and women to have some kind of bondage. But before you get married make sure you REALLY love the person. If not, that would lead to what you said (DIVORCES). So yeah...In my opinion, IT IS WORTH IT.
Forget love, love is nice but you can love an a**hole. Do you like and respect the person and visa versa? Love is just the icing on the cake. Been married going on 31 years and he is still my best friend.
my girlfriend and I have been living together happily un-married for 10 years. we have joint bank accounts, both our names are on the car loan and apartment lease. bear in mind, getting married ties both of your credit scores and incomes together when looking for finacial assistance i.e. collage, community action programs, medical cost sliding scales. you may find that married, the two of you make too much money when you really need help. Also, with divorce rates over 50% I am sure most of them thought they were really in love. A divorce is cheaper than a marrige (at least in NH) but your credit score will take a hit. if you do go the married route a pre-nup will save alot of aggrivation and bad feeling between you and your new Ex
I've been married for 38 years and no, I don't think I'd do it again. It pretty much is just a case of putting up with the other person (for better or worse) because it's hard to get rid of the other person. This can be done without marrying them too.
In my opinion if you have trust and no doubts marriage can work. Both people most make sacrifices and work together. Love and communication must always be there. I was married ten yrs almost but mine didn't last. All the signs were there before I got married but I ignored them being young and inexperienced. That's doesn't mean all marriages end in divorce.
Smart question considering that, in my country, about 50% of marriages end in divorce. If you're both willing to work at it, if you're prepared to put each other's feelings ahead of your own, YES, it can work. And when it works it's wonderful.
As an agnostic I'm not given to quoting the Bible but there are places in it that have a lot of wisdom. In Mark's Gospel is written, "the twain shall be one flesh." It's almost literally true and two people together can achieve a relationship that is far greater than the sum of their parts.
Of course. Hubster and I have been married for just over 24 years. :0)
Just remember that it is not all a bed of roses. You will have two very different people joining a life as one. You have to learn to coexist peacefully and happily. If you cannot, it will never work. If you are a "me me me" type of person, it will be difficult.
Marriage is not for everyone as evidenced by the large divorce rate here in the States. It is a step in a relationship not to be taken lightly. If you are not sure, do not do it.
