i was married once for eight years. it was completely the wrong move. I have two awesome kids and that is the only thing positive that came from it. she lost our house and pretty much everything else.
my g/f now i have been with for five years and we talk about getting married. But getting married is not the be all and end all. Katie is my best friend in the world and she is totally my better half. She is this married or not!
You know whether or not the women your with is the one who would rather spend more time with than anyone else. then it is time to get married. If your not there yet dont make the mistake everyone else does.
end rant :)
