We are all married to the same women, we just live in different houses.

Re: So how important is Marriage to you?

I liked being married. I liked having the whole package: a house, kids, common friends, visits with the relatives, fun vacations and most importantly, somebody who would be there for you.

When a marriage falls apart, then it becomes hell on earth.

I don't think I'd get married again. Marriage just seems something that young people should do. Or for people who have never been married before. I'm not sure why someone would want to get married a second time.

Re: So how important is Marriage to you?

For all those bachelors and spinsters, just marry your loved ones, you will know how(little bit extra) beautiful your life and relationship is.

Just imagine the moment your partner would say, ''Will you marry me? I want to live the rest of my life with you'', if you have not yet experienced it.

You are really missing 2 things if you are unmarried; that moment of joy during the proposal and a lifelong incomparable relationship which is reallyreally beautiful. Well you have to make it beautiful .

You may live together with your partner; but getting married is something different and divine. Feel it.

Regards.

Huge constant disagreements, hysteria and drama are one thing. I've learned to avoid those like the plague. But how would you deal with your partner having a death in the family or getting sick? Then there's inevitable stress that comes with having kids (if you do choose to have them). No matter how compatible you are, it's never going to be effortless, not on a long enough timeline.

That said, marriage should be an extension of that understanding, not a prison that forces people to work things out. I'm not really a fan of the "I've got the beauracratic wall in place to keep him from ever leaving me too easily! Yaaay love!" attitude some people in this thread had. That's just borderline creepy.
The stresses that you mention... Last year my husband's brother died suddenly and I've had some health issues starting in December. One of the things I find is that it is so much easier to go through these difficult times together. It's not effortless, but I think going through these things together can make you appreciate each other, perhaps even more.

Better than the French 'vieille fille' (old girl)

Not too familiar with the laws over here, but I believe that could be interpreted as incest...a game the whole family can play...apparently.

Re: So how important is Marriage to you?

Is a spinster still called a spinster if she has a lover?

And why does bachelor have a positive sound to it and spinster a negative sound to it? Now that's unfair!
