    Given the Divorce rate I would venture to say no.

    The problem is that you shouldnt marry because you need something, you should get married cause you want to. What ever happened to gettin married for love. The person you marry is the one you agree to spend the rest of your life with so if you are not truly happy with them you might want to reconsider gettin married. A good test to see if you should marry your partner is to live together for at least 1 year, then you will see how your potential married life will be.

    No...it's a give and take situation, because you are individuals not conjoined twins.  You have different personalities, likes and dislikes you should marry to partner with someone in life that you love.  I think there will always be a lacking in a relationship because it's not built on perfection, it should be built on friendship, love and compatibility.  None of which is easily obtained or achieved.

    No!  Marriage is a permanent working relationship.  You both have to give a little to maintain a happy marriage.  As the marriage grows older, the individuals may find that their wants, needs, desires, and goals can change.  So, you should discuss what your needs (for now and into the future) are with each other to try to find ways the individuals of the marriage can have some of their needs fulfilled.  Actually, this should have been done in the pre-marriage phase so that you both would have an understanding of what you are getting into.  I think that getting married for love is a prerequisite for marriage, but understanding what you each want and expect out of the rest of your lives together is just as important.
