    There are so many opinions about marriage.  What are your 'feelings' on saying, 'I do'?

    There are so many opinions about marriage.  What are your 'feelings' on saying, 'I do'? 
    I promise to have and to hold, to honor and to cherish, to love until I give up the 'ghost.'  Do we still have a need in this century to engage in a life of 'wedded bliss?'  Or is living together with our hearts joined as if we were married enough?

    In all fairness, all of those that answer this question deserve to know my 'feelings' on saying 'I do'?
    My feelings:  Oh yes, I believe strongly in the union of two hearts, souls and bodies.  This Princess cannot wait until her Prince takes to one knee...

    Most couples have NO idea of " what for better or for worse" encompasses.

    You simply can not know, on the gorgeous wedding day,  what might come down the pike 10, 15, or 30 years later.............I did not either, and still, here we are, together...........

    we are not kids anymore, we are responsible adults with committments.

    We are living the vows, not releasing ourselves from them.

    It is man and woman, not prince and princess..........get that vision out of your head!

    Call me an old cynic, but I think that for a truly happy marriage, both partners have to start by being outcasts, and then to  emigrate to a country far from their home, and difficult to get to, where they could go through their trials and tribulations, and the learning process  which is married life as individuals in their own right, without having to experience married life as proxies of their friends and relatives, who might insist on giving free advice which  unless followed to the letter, would turn them into enemies.
    Now for the hard part. I believe that FRIENDSHIP is the most important aspect of the relationship. All other sentiments become less important as partners get older, but friendship and mutual respect last forever. To prove whether this is the case, one only has to see how often couples go through three or even more partners without ever losing the friends they made in school. Beware of any attraction that is purely physical. That sort of thing begins to vanish as one gets older.
    Also, partners have to make sure they are not setting themselves up as a sociological experiment aimed at proving that their sort of union is capable of surviving against all the odds.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback on my question.  I know that marriage is not princes and princesses - my name happens to be Princess Prisca.  You know, princess waiting for her prince.

    I can assure you that I live and breathe in the real world and am not disillusioned about holy matrimony or the many dimensions of it. 

    Ciao...Princess Prisca

    I think it's idealized and overrated myself. The formality of it doesn't guarantee to make a marriage/relationship work. I think people should save their money.
