    I think marriage, when someone is in it for the right reasons, is beautiful. And I DO believe in marriage. I think society today is very focused on love, but not on commitment. Dedicating yourself to one person for the rest of your life is an amazing thing, and something I hope to have one day.

    I also strongly believe in the traditional order of things - You fall in love, you get married, you have sex, you have children. But today that's not a norm anymore. So many people get married out of wedlock or have children with people that they don't marry. It's sad, at least to me, but it's something that happens and who am I to decide what is right for another person.

    Yes, I still believe in marriage, even though I am divorced. Marriage is a beautiful covenant between two people ordained by God, himself! While there are many who marry for the wrong reasons (including myself); it is refreshing and hopeful to see married couples committed to each other in unconditional, unfailing, til death do us part love. Those marriages are perfect examples of Christ's love for His church of believers.

    I believe in the concept of marriage...but this is a business concept moreso in this day and age than a religious concept.

    Yes I believe in marriage.  My husband and I have an awesome relationship and you know why?  Because we talk and we still have romance and we still have date nights and we still tell each other everyday that we love each other.

    I don't believe in marriage, the christian version. There's really no reason for it except to bind someone into a contract thinking it can't be broken.

    The pagan handfasting is a bit different. It's a soul binding, and while I still think even that is a silly custom, it makes more sense to me than a traditional marriage. I believe in making vows to each other. Those vows are private and individual to each couple, it's between them, and no one else. There doesn't need to be an audience or someone to preside over the vows. To me that's belittling love into a simple contract. Love is much more than that.

    That said, I will marry my fiance simply because it is his wish. If it will make him happy for us to have that little piece of paper, then so be it. I understand it's difficult to break traditions, but for me, it really doesn't matter. I already consider him and refer to him as my husband because I've already made the commitment.

    I believe in marriage for the right reasons. Marriage because you love a person, they love you back and you want to spend the rest of your lives together and want the world to know it, compares to nothing else in the world other than the birth of a child. But marriage because you got pregnant, because you're worried about spending the rest of your life alone, you can't afford your rent on your own, you need someone around for your children or for any similar reason/s I believe is foolish, set up for unhappiness and is unlikely to last.

    Yes, I believe in marriage. It is not only the joining of two people, it is also the joining together of two families. Neither marriage nor its vows should be taken lightly. Getting along is not always easy and involves compromise and forgiveness, but a well-chosen mate is worth the effort.

    I have actually done "til death do us part" with my husband. I definitely do believe in marriage. It is a gift when the person you are married to is also your closest friend and you enjoy communicating with each other. It's not always easy but is definitely worthwhile as it is so rewarding.

    I think there is too much energy focused on the wedding over the marriage. I don't understand why a wedding is typically blown into an over priced party fit for royalty. I think money is better spent on positive investments such as, opening a business together instead of splurging on a one day stint that causes debt which most of the people involved view the event as a hassle. Love is love marriage certificate or not.
