What does marriage mean to you?

What does marriage mean to you?

How do you define marriage? What makes it sacred? If marriage = a loving couple committing to each other for the rest of their lives, who else should be part of the equation? Some people believe a marriage is only valid if done in church by a priest, while others are content to be legally married in a courthouse. Some couples want to have a ceremony to involve all the people they love as witnesses of the solidifying of their union. Some couples already feel committed to their bond but want the law to acknowledge their bond for tax, insurance, and other legal purposes such as having the rights of a family member in emergency matters surrounding their beloveds. What does marriage mean to you, and what could possibly threaten that meaning?

I lived with a man for a while, and one night, at a friend”s apartment, while a bit drunk, we declared ourselves husband & wife, and we meant it. About 6 years later we were properly married according to the state & with a priest. 2 years after that, I was filing for divorce. I think inviting church and state into the bond between two people kind of depletes the meaning. There”s nothing more precious than the power of a voluntary union between two people with no paperwork binding the love. I think once you try to bind love, or… Read more »

Dear Happily Divorced,
That won”t happen in your lifetime or mine… Too many lawyers and religions will not let that happen.

I don”t know, realist. Lots has happened in my lifetime that I never expected. With the Occupy Movement, assaults on women”s reproductive rights, and everyone ready to reassess everything and start all over again, I don”t think we can really guess what might happen next!

If you now you love someone then nothing and no won should change that, if your married or not. You and your loved one should understand that. And when something difficult happens it should bring you closer not farther.
That is what love is to me.

I believe that everyone should have the same opportunitity to marry the person that they love and want to be with for the rest of their lives no matter if it is between a man and a women, a man and a man, or a women and a women. I feel with President Obama openly coming out in support of gay marriage that there will possibly be a change in the legal system sooner rather than later.

There are definitely a whole lot of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to bring up. I supply the thoughts above as common inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place an important factor might be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, however I”m sure that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys really feel the affect of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

Thanks for the unique tips provided on this website. I have noticed that many insurance carriers offer shoppers generous discount rates if they favor to insure multiple cars with them. A significant variety of households include several cars or trucks these days, specially those with older teenage youngsters still residing at home, as well as savings upon policies may soon mount up. So it is good to look for a good deal.

How do you define marriage?
A commitment that you should think about 100 before you decide to go with 🙂

What makes it sacred?
because it demand a lot of responsibility and hard efforts to make it work from the both sides which in many cases doesn’t happen :S
