    Five???  You only need one:  It's marriage!  Don't do it!  It's just a piece of paper after all, and any two people that truly love each (my other half and I have been together 12 years) can have the same relationship, the same commitment, and the devotion without it.  Who is to say that the government or the church (through a marriage license or an official ceremony) is going to determine how you feel about someone else?

        That's true Misha.  And there are most certainly good reason why some people feel compelled to take the plunge.  Heck I did...twice, and so did my better half.  But if I had to do it all over again, given my personal circumstances, I would abstain...

        LOL, insurance may be a reason.  Thank God I'm a nurse and will never lack in that aspect!  I hate to think I would marry again!  Some are made for it, some are not.  big_smile
