    I believe in serious relationships and true love. Nowadays, a lot of couples live happily together (not necessarily married) and that's what matters the most. Marriage or not, whatever makes you happy!

    Yes, I do. Not the religious kind of marriage but the idea of being with somebody you love, share your life with that person and start a family.

    Yes I do. I do believe that people can fall in love and stay in love. I believe that in our day in age people spend so much time worrying about what their partner doesn't offer and not focusing on the things that attracted them to you in the first place.

    It's not a question of believing in marriage, the hard relationship science proves that we were designed to be in very close long term emotional relationships. Married couples, in healthy relationships, live longer and suffer far less physical and emotional disease. they are also better able to effectively parent and function at a higher performance levels at work. 

    That's why I'm passionate about saving marriages!

    Yes I do. though I am not married and I would love to be married one day. Marriage is good and only for the serious minded, the committed, really for those who are wanting to be more like God. God is LOVE. Marriage without love is not believable or not successful. The one you choose must also choose you as you are and not who you were or will be but as you are now and must respect your core beliefs. Now there is always room for improvement but no one should try to change anyone. But only love, respect and pray for the other and encourage and help one another. Nothing can top LOVE'S expression  smile

    I think it's up to the individual to choose whether it suits them -  it certainly isn't optimal for everyone.

    Human's aren't wired to be monogamous (polygamous men and hypergamous women), so you have to resist your natural desires if you are going to practice monogomy successfully, which is easier for some than it is for others.

    Whilst I think open marriages can be a healthy thing, it is not without it's drawbacks.

    I also don't believe you need to get married to have a successful long-term or life relationship - it is a mutual contract that is somewhat of a barrier, but is much easier to terminate these days (far less social stigma and often there is even an incentive for one party) than it was in yest a year.

    The statistics do say that married people live longer and healthier, however they are flawed as they don't measure quality of life, they don't differentiate between happily married vs unhappily married, single and happy vs single and unhappy, frequency of sexual activity, income levels, lifestyle factors etc.The research needs to be conducted at a deeper level.

    People trying to avoid marriage are simply trying to avoid doing things the hard way. In life, the hard way is more often the right way. Communities that are doing their best to dispense with marriage are often the most broken and unhappy despite all their efforts. Marriages almost always work when two of you are determined to make it work and not necessarily if you are both so crazily in love. You see Love is not really a feeling its a decision

    I think that if two persons really love each other, a ritual won't be necessary to build a compromise, or to share their life together or start a familly. What really matter is how they feel. But marriage is a beautiful way to share that feeling.

    Yes!  Marriage is a wonderful thing!  It doesn't always feel wonderful and takes work and commitment as well as faithfulness.  People are selfish by nature and marriage helps to open our eyes to that.

    I definitely do. Marriage would be by many considered just a basis to live together and be a partner to one another. But I will say its not just this way, people marry to keep their relationship always alive and go on forever. There are when the divorce and evils of it come up yet marriage is purely needed between two loving couples.
    The aspects like understandability, knowing likes and dislikes, building up a family with kids and the know how in the society about their won status in the society is always important. Marriage being a legal agreement provides enough basis for couples to not make silly decisions with their lives and spoil them instantly.

    yes....planning one right now!  Very happy, but deciding to get married is a decision between a couple.  It's completely up to the couple, and how they want their relationship to be.  I believe in marriage, and the vows.  Alot of others don't.  Relationships are intimate, and nothing is ever perfect.

    Yes, I believe in marriage...
    Marriage is not a simple relationship between two lovers. Marriage is a promise for life, who must overcome the difficulties of life to bring stability and happiness in your relationship.

    Hmm... Good question!

    I think once people have been married once , that is enough for a lifetime- when I say that I mean- Marry then split - .... thereafter even though they possibly marry again, their belief is never the same!

    I think because the ritual has been moulded into our minds that marriage seals a contract forever between two people and when it goes wrong we are left with a disappointing feeling.

    I am going to be married this summer , If God wills.

    An though I was married before, I have ignored that fact because It was a bad one... I have not believed in it for 6-7 years up - till now..

    So there is HOPE for those who hate the idea of it...

    Subconsciously our mind becomes frightened at the word 'marriage' and it feels like your caged in forever...
    But its a beautiful thing...So anyone feeling any fear or has no belief in it... Hold on..when the right person comes along smile all that fear and doubt will disappear smile

    i believe in marriage. i believe in the end that is where everyone wants to end up. if it has been done before then maybe those people wont want to do it again depending how big the failure was.

    my dream is to be married, not with only happy moments, i will love the bad moments as well as long as we always make up.

    marriage is apart of life. whats life with out someone to share it with.
