    Default Thinking of getting Married

    I may have met the one if ya know what I mean. We are both running out of time and desire to be in Love. Money and security..well kinda lopsided there and I would be at risk for that. And I would be inheriting a life of drama. Is it worth it ?

    I was told a long time ago
    MARRY for MONEY< LOVE IS FREE LOL
    but honestly I think its a more personal deal, than a rule of thumb on getting married or not

    its great for some and its terrible for others

    I'd be doing some serious looking at how compatible you's are in life NOW< and plans of the future!
    and even chat up some of the past, as the past has a way of haunting a lot of folks that cannot get past it!

    oh so true. believe me I hear all about the past. 11 yrs later. She cant get beyond it. And the present. And both are still haunting/dominating our conversations, Hence the drama.

    Marriage is the hardest job I've ever had. For me its worth it with the life I've built with my wife and twin boys. Highs and lows, counseling, personalities....everything plays a part. Just remember your are marrying her family too and she yours.

    Absolutely, X2! However we've been married for 44 years, and wouldn't think of it any other way! She's the best I could ever ask for! Good luck, eh!

    Oh so true! Wise comment. I remind any younger person thinking about getting married of that same advice if they ask me.

    To the OP...if the potential wife comes with drama...Highly recommend taking your time to know 100% you want to proceed. If she's the one, then she will still be around.

    Your words DRAMA! No way I would marry into drama who needs that nonsense in their life? You want someone that brings peace and contentment to your life not DRAMA. Stay single for sure be friends and free to look some more.

    Remember:
    The (dating) sites cater to more than 50 million users in the U.S., Slavitt said, noting that research from OKCupid has found people who are vaccinated or plan to get vaccinated receive 14% more matches than those who don't.

    I have no idea who "Slavitt" is. And dating site profiles can claim anything. Do you even follow the conversation or read what you type ?

    DRAMA - Never had any in my life and would like to keep it that way.

    MARRIAGE IS THE CAUSE OF DIVORCE.

    Do you know why divorces costs so much ? Because they're worth it.

    Yesterday I would have said marriage is great. Today, not so much. It's like the ocean and there will be waves.

    If there is drama before marriage, it will be drama X1000 after the wedding.

    Also, it depends how happy you are with yourself, by yourself. Some people need to have others around them to be happy. If you are content being alone for long periods of time and look forward to being alone, marriage may not be for you.

    I know a lot of folks that will highly disagree with this one
    and tell you straight up, it was way over priced and set them back decades from ever retiring and filled with regrets!
    and since the percentages of how many STAY married is so high, I doubt there alone!

    as they say some folks PLAY and WIN the lottery, sadly most DON"T! LOL!

    I will be married 25 years this weekend, and wouldn't change a thing. We both agree, no drama. We do have our differences for sure, but we work them out or at least agree to disagree, but then we move on. Having a great partner in life can be wonderful, but if your asking an internet forum, you must have concern in your choice already. Just being honest.

    I will say this about marriage. If you have drama in a relationship now, it's not going to change, at least from my personal experience. My first marriage was exactly that, DRAMA. Stuck it out for 13 years, then it came to an end. For me & my young daughters at the time, it was rough, but in the grand scheme of things it was the best thing that could have happened for the 3 of us. I have been happily married since for 20 years. Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been roses, it takes a bit of effort, kindness & understanding from both parties to make it work. I joked about marriage being a "wonderful institution" cause sometimes things can drive you a little crazy, but, when you work through the issues that can occur & do it together, it just further bonds the relationship. I wouldn't have it any other way. -Mezz

    I always thought marriage licenses should be renewable every several years like other licenses. That being said I've been renewing mine for 45 years with no regrets.

    No after all these years of going solo I'm good with how things are. I don't wanna mess it all up now. You talked me out of it.

    I couldn’t help but overhear 2 20 something year old guys talking in the bar last night, One of the guys says to his friend “you look tired”, “I am exhausted” he said, “I can’t believe it, my girlfriend and I are having sex three and four times a day, I just can’t keep up with it, I don’t know what to do”. an older guy was hearing the conversation sitting a couple stools down said to them “go ahead and marry her, that’ll put a stop to it”

    Well...now I have the same problem. Gave a drunk girl a safe ride home, exchanged numbers, started dating. Shes 13 years younger way hot. Tons of affections and the other things. She started planning my wedding after 3 weeks, is a two bottle a day wine drinker, tons of drama, nights filled with drunken ramblings that turn into incoherent mumblings.
    I think I will heed my own advice and start Truck shopping..
