    Tell me something-

    If your man or woman -cheats on you with someone-who's to blame ? the person who was able to seduce them or your partner who succumbed down to that level? What if the seducer was single ? What if seducer wasn't?

    The person in the relationship is mostly to blame but if the person they cheat with knows the other person is married, they are wrong too.

    Because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I’ve questioned my decision many times, but we’ve trudged through life like soldiers and I love her❤️

    Very good. I think it's just the normal thing to do. And I don't regret it even after 30 years.

    I got married because I wanted to. Plain and simple. My reasons are my own and probably different (if only slightly) from some other person who decided to marry.

    Because we love each other and want to be together for life.

    People say you can do that without getting married, and YES, you can! But that's not how we roll.

    While we were dating I suggested we move in together. She said, "not without a ring on my finger." Soooo we got engaged, lived together and got married. In retrospect, I was kinda pressured. Don't do it ladies!

    Basically what I posted in the first post.

    I guess I was looking for something which doesn't exist. All the posted answers suggest that it's just a very simple thing. You either do it or not. I just assumed there was something beyond which I didn't understand because I am not married and never had a relationship in a conventional sense. I've had "encounters" and "dates" they were both good and bad. I have memories from them which I cherish. I've had friends good and bad as well. I do not hate anyone or dislike anything- I forgive and move on because I get to learn from everything. After all a situation is good or bad depending on how we perceive it.

    Marriage is stupid to me and makes no logical sense but even tho that's how I feel, I know how important it is to women so I married my ex wife to make her happy.

    I will never marry again.

    He was the part of me that had always been missing. I was put on this earth to love him and care for him during his battle with ALS. I was blessed to be able to call him my partner, my best friend, my lover and my husband. 💙

    This is very sweet. <3
