To me it seems strange how one who is already living/cohabiting with his or her partner can get so excited about becoming engaged. In that scenario I don't get what the difference is, it seems merely a step to make the commitment on paper.' We've already made a commitment to spend our likes together, let's formslise it on paper'.

Compared to the couple who aren't aleady cohabiting...'lets get married because I want to spend the rest of my life with you'. It's more symbolic.

I don't get the point of the former. Put that wedding money to better use.

Nothing. If you truly love someone you don't need marriage to prove it.

Marriage is a contract, telling each other that no matter what happens, both partners will stick together. That both partners fully trust and love one another. That they want to grow old together. That they understand each other and would do anything to have each other in their life.

Shame I won't be getting married, don't believe in it. I don't believe there is a person out there who is made for you, there's no such thing as a soulmate. One way or another, everyone will get f*cked over by a person they love. There is no one in the world who will understand you, trust you, confide in you, be honest with you and love you, till the moment they die. It just doesn't exist.

To me its BS. In the event you want to split up then things get hugely complicated. As the proud owner of a penis, I am not gonna make it easy for me to get tucked right up.

Marriage doesn't make sense, because it doesn't mean what it once did. Ownership.

I feel that marriage is the ultimate promise. It's completely, totally giving yourself to the other person for the rest of your life, and them doing the same for you. In my opinion, it is the ultimate sign of true love, and I feel that when marriages break down it's nobody's fault per sé but that the people involved didn't fully immerse themselves or understand the promises that they were making when they made them. Obviously I'm talking about a normal relationship, not an abusive one, unfortunately a lot of people feel trapped in those situations which is never good. I'm gonna take my time and not rush into marriage, I want to be completely sure that I want to remain with the person forever. :-)

This is a question I struggle with a lot. Being married, it's very confusing to figure out what exactly it is. There's obviously the legal aspect which brings security and peace of mind for many issues. It's also very intimate personally. There isn't a tangible change and things don't feel obviously different but...they are. There is a new seriousness to the relationship. A new....commitment. Although to me that might mean something different to others, being poly and all.

Interesting...

I take it you're already in a cohabiting relationship?
