Marriage is a commitment, a holy union before God. People claim to honor God but disregard his commandments when it comes to marriage and Divorce,If you have no faith in your partner you shouldnt be together. Thats whats wrong with this world people have no morals and just shack up or get married for the wrong reasons. Noone wants to do the right thing and work at and be committed, they want instant gratification, nothing is sacred anymore. Alot of people disagree but the truth hurts sometimes.
I think you should.. Your onceing to God family and friends this is the woman/man I love and want to spend the rest of my life with!! and too your self:) the party is just a celebration of the two bc/ one uino:) && LOVE:*
No, marriage is not necessary, but if you were planning to have sex with a specific person because you love and cherish then deeply, then it's not a bad idea to get married first. God says that sex before marriage is sin, so if you were to have an intimate relationship with someone, and you truly love them, then marriage should at least be in consideration.
I'm old. I did the whole shack up thing with my boyfriend when I was a kid. That worked out ok for us at the time and probably saved a lot of lawyer fees when I left. I lived with my current husband for years. But as we grew up we both realized we not only wanted to make the traditional loving, life long commitments, we NEEDED the legal protections of marriage. I know that's not romantic sounding but when you have kids, buy property, have insurance, get sick, etc. that's the practical stuff marriage protects couples with. We've been together for over 25 years. No regrets. I really understand why people feel strongly either way though.
No you don't need to be married. My husband and I lived together for 8 years and both had been married before and decided neither of us wanted to be married again. Then I lost my job n needed his insurance they made us get married to be able to be on his policy. Its no different going on 17 yr now. It's just up to you what you both feel is right for you at the time. Good luck be happy!

Getting married is a commitment and is not for everyone. It all depends on where you are in a relationship and if marriage is right for you. Getting married shows you are intending on being committed to a specific relationship. Unfortunately, marriage does not always work out, but that does not make marriage wrong or bad.
