Don't fall for the marriage trap even if you find a very attractive woman.

I really dislike the way most voaters see marriage. My wife is my best friend , we've been together for 14 years, have a wonderful son, and I would not be happier if I were single or just playing the field. Do what works for you, buy laying down a huge blanket statement like this is unnecessary.

You are the increasingly rare exception.

ditto. Marriage is not without its own difficulties, but if you marry the right woman, a true helpmeet, it is inconceivable to live without her.

The thing is, you can do all of that without an arbitrary legal document.

If you really love someone you let them be free. True love is a partner that is free to go anywhere but they stay with you. If things change, and the other person isn't happy anymore, I don't want them to be a prisoner of my love.

Same here, ten years though. We dated for two years before getting married and waited to have a kid until two years after. I think a big problem a lot of people have is that they jump in head first and have no idea what they're really getting themselves into.

I will never put my foot in that bear trap.
Life is good. I'm not gonna fuck that up.

I make it clear when I begin dating a woman that I will never marry, so if that is a deal breaker for them then they should go.
