    Marriage is good if it is for the right reasons.

    It's not about marriage being good or bad it's about how you view it. If you think marriage is good then it's good irrespective of what other people have to say.

    Before making a lifelong commitment there are things each party should consider.

    1. What do you think marriage is
    2. Do you want to get married
    3. Why do you want to get married

    After considering the above questions then you would have a better understanding of what you are getting into. Marriage is what you make it out to be, until you decide what marriage means to you then it remains neutral.

    When you get married it is up o you to make it work or last. Every relationship takes hard work and marriage is no different. You need also to make sure each person understand why they are doing this.

    If I know that you are marrying me just because I'm rich and I am okay with that, then we don't have a problem because you were honest with me. So here honesty plays an important role in the relationship.

    Both persons need to be honest with themselves and each other before making the decision.

    Marriage is a good thing. For getting married, you have to be prepared for things like disagreements, and differences. There will be heated arguments. The one thing that you should do is keep your cool. If you find that a discussion is getting too heated, the best thing to do is to find some kind of way to take a break and continue the discussion.

    as long as you have a strong relationship, marriage should not hurt it and it should be good. If your in a not so good relationship- getting married will not help.

    It can be as long as both parties work on it on a consitent basis and Love and Respect each other.Also keeping the lines of communication open and having regard for each others feelings are always in play.If this happens than any problem can be solved and you'll have a happy life together.
    It Depends on how much effort both parties put into their marriage..... some last.... some fizzle out.
    If your blessed by finding that one person then you are one of the lucky ones.

    The idea of marriage being good or bad really depends on the one who's thinking about getting married. I think marriage is a wonderful thing when it's right. Some people rush into getting married before they really know all that they can about a person. One thing that I think is vital to consider before marriage is how compatable to people are, not in general, but with living arrangements. Two people may be perfect for each other as far as attitude, personality, and interests, but that doesn't mean that they can live together. It may go against certain belief structures, but I think that before someone gets married they should live together first. It's a good way to see how things would be after marriage, but still early enough to reconsider if it doesn't seem to be working, without the legal troubles afterward

    Marriage is in part more than just good or bad... Its a whole hearted commitment something that in todays world is taken lightly vs taken the way it should be.

    There will be good times and there will be bad times, but "for better or for worse" marriage is a partnership, to stand together against all odds... even if the outcome looks bleak.

    I've had my taste of the bad and I've emmersed myself in the good of it. Do it for the right reasons... don't rush in foolishly and believe thats all there is to it. Because the person you marry, you are dedicating yourself not only to be recognized by the law, but to living with eachother through it all.

    Every couple has their fights , every couple has their problems, its whether it breaks you or makes you stronger in the end. If your considering it ... make sure you got the whole scope before hopping into the frying pan.

    The best current relationship science proves that we are designed for being in long term, monogamous and emotionally healthy relationships.

    Before getting married people need to learn basic relationship maintenance skills and knowledge. It's like driving a car. If you don't learn first and try to drive, someone usually gets hurt.

    If you do learn how to drive safely for a few months from a good teacher or teachers, it becomes automatic. We don't even have to think about it and we arrive safe and sound 99.99% of the time.

    Distressed couples also learn and apply these basic relationship skills to save and transform their marriages as well.

    Marriage is really what you make of it. People get married for various reasons, not all good.

    I think in getting married, people need to take time to get to know each other.

    Don't get married expecting that you partner will change his/her ways afterwards, or whatever he does that annoys you.

    It's important to be friends first, so that the friendship can cushion the difficult times.

    Two way communication is of the utmost importance, and so is trust.

    Each person needs to have their own interests.

    Marriage is not good or bad, it's the people in it that determine it's worth.  Many are not the type of people to be able to make a lifetime commitment, while many others are.  Consider whether or not the personalities are complimentary, if you have the same values and goals, and many many other issues like having children, religion, how to handle finances, sexual compatability and lifestyles.  Take your time..................marriage is forever.

    Marriage is a "life style choice".
    It's not for everyone. Some people really are happier living alone, dating, and enjoying "the single life". What determines whether a marriage is "good" or "bad" is the two people in it. The best marriages are usually between people who have the same values and desires in life. They agree on the major things. It's important to KNOW Yourself before (selecting) your life partner.
    Each of us chooses our own friends, lovers, and spouse. If you go to the store to purchase an apple but buy an onion instead....Whose fault is that? You have to know what YOU want before you make your choice and be willing to stick to your own "shopping list". You are responsible for your own happiness!

    Both!!!!  I have been married for almost 11 years...good and bad!  I think overall marriage is a wonderful thing, but if one thinks there won't be any ugly moments...what a surprise you will have!  I would suggest that people make sure they really like their significant other before they get married.  Great sex can only take you so far...marriage really requires a lot of work and constant communication...if you don't like your spouse...consider them your best friend, things can be really hard.  If you laugh a lot and you really respect and like each other...not just love and will be fine!

    For me, marriage sis good if this happened due to mutual commitment and love of the couple. They may encounter problems along the way, but its just part of the marriage life. It will only turned bad if it is a one way commitment.

    Marriage is most definitely a good thing. If two people love each other and are willing to spend the rest of their lives together, they should get married.

    Marriage brings in a lot of responsibilities and requires effort, both partners should be well aware of this and be willing to accept it - this is one of the things that should be consider before getting married.
