      Respect, communication, trust, and a smile that’s says I love you for being you, I am very lucky to find a women who I want to spend my life with., and after twenty years, I can honestly say, I love her more now than ever.

    Benefits....not sure if I can consider benefits; some will.  I got married because I had a belief, felt that we were making a commitment for a lifetime to each other rather than just a legal commitment.  Otherwise just live together.  As well, followed tradition.  I was wrong...it was complicated though.  Doubt if I'd marry again.

    Flightkeeper actually wrote very interesting point of view on this topic:

    Lots of stuff I've never thought about.  Probably because I've been married so long.

    I am not married but and unsure whether I ever will. It all depends I guess, I certainly would take my vows very serious indeed.

    Marriage life is like driving a vehicle. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it!!!

    Research found out that men who are married die older than their counterparts, and financially both are better off, insurance, joined assets, in the long run according to the study even if the marriage has ups and downs it has more advantages, and it still helps to marry

    I wrote a hub about this

    and personally "It is good to belong to someone" and feel that you are loved, somebody to be with and to feel love, and to give and share love, we are born to be with somebody,,,

    Being married makes it so much harder to walk away, so you are more inclined to put up with the tough times, and stay together.  So on the plus side, many couples can remain happily married for many many years, with just a few tough times. On the down side, the difficulty in walking away from a marriage makes some couple stay together when they really shouldn't- when they are really hurting each other.

    well, the wedding was awesome!  we will never forget it and how enjoyable it was.  thats a plus.  and we like belonging to each other.  we're a team and we rely on each other without doubting if we will be supported.  and we love each other a lot.  there is something incredible about being married to the one you love.  hard to put to words.  of course we are not immune to problems and tough times, but we get through them and we work at it.  love being married.  honestly.

    Getting married is easy. Staying married is nearly impossible. Our society is too damned complicated now. There are too many expectations and the couple is bombarded with external nonsense. It always comes down to money and lifestyle. Gotta have this and gotta have that. The focus is no longer on each other but on trying to survive in a very threatening world. So the couple is beat down and, over time, is reduced to two incoherent and babbling nonentities who have no idea why they got married in the first place.
       So what are the benefits of getting married? I no longer have any idea.

    The Biggest Secret about Relationships is knowing Yourselves Wholey 1st and Then *DEALING FROM THE INSIDE*. It is the Ultimate Answer. As you can see from other responses, outsiders know Nothing about Your relationship, just their own Good or Bad experiences. Other people are bias to their Own experiences with relationships. So if you Know Yourself well enough, & your spouse knows Theirself well enough, then you must be asking this question to them. Others will Always be a distraction. Focus on whats Real in Your Life, not others'. My fiance Always posts our business on Facebook, talks to his family and friends about Everything or mere Strangers. They only hear His side and Most of them have been divorced so of Course they will Always tell him to leave. This is why i will not marry him, because hes not a Strong enough person on the inside to think for himself or confront Me with his concerns. YOu will be ONE if you get married so if you dont like to think of it that way dont get married. YOu would never go to others and say, "i have scars on my right leg, should i cut it off?" You learn to live with it, and you make that decision within yourself. its a silly example but i feel as though it is a Truth. You can learn to deal with Anything but is it what you deserve. I will always be satisfied and happy single. i Love God and in Heaven it is written that we will All be single Anyway, as children of God. So its Up to You and it is Also written, that if Anyone should ASk for Wisdom from God, He will Always Answer that request within a short period of time. smile
