    personally, i dont think it is at all why would you need a group of people fancy dressed a single kiss and basically papers to bind u to another person and a big party to keep you happy? loving the other person and knowing u can b happy and secure together without being legally binded together (which i think causes more issues than good if it doesnt work) is much more fulfilling than getting married. but that is my own thoughts on your topic.
    do what you and your lover think is best but think it through carefully.

    best wishes with all!

    I think so. There are statistics that say that married people live longer than unmarried people. I can see that I mean if it is a good marriage, it is companionship for life. Which makes for a happier person.

    It depends on a person's outlook and attitude. After 17 years of marriage.. i can say from experience it can only double your happiness... If you are a sharing, caring person, nothing can make you happier than being married to a person you love. Even more happier times is when you hold the bundle of joy/s in your hands and even greater joy is when you see them flourish..
    Happiness is in the way you look at life .. your status married /unmarried doesnt mean a thing!!

    Penny and I have been together for 23 years and there is little likelihood that a marriage is on the cards.


    Because there's nothing wrong with our relationship. We stay together because we want to, not because we feel obliged to. I have seen marriage split many happy couples, so why would we want to change something that's perfectly good as it is?

    We have our happy life WITHOUT a stupid bit of paper.

    The answer varies with each of us.  For me the answer is yes.  I enjoyed being single.  When I got married  I was ready to commit to a relationship.  I don't know if I got lucky or smart but it worked.  You have to know yourself and do what is best for you at that time in your life.

    Absolutely not! Being happy comes from within you. If you are happy with your life then that is fantastic and being married could be the icing on the cake for you. If you are not happy and you get married, well I guess you would be happy for a period of time but your happiness would not last because you looked for it outside of yourself. If you are truly happy with the person you are, everything else falls in to place. Take time to get to know who you truly are and be true to yourself.

    What is marriage? A piece of paper you file at the court house and a box you check on your income tax return or whats in your heart?
