As in one partner for life or five separate relationships at least 10 years long with not more than a year being alone between. All relationship's are passionate and you both fall deeply in love, the break ups occur mutually because the spark has run out but you remain amicable, except for the last one who you stay with till you die. So would you rather love just once or 5 times?
Once!!

I mean, don't do it man. Break the cycle! Do the things you enjoy doing instead, focus on the internet, your career and hobbies etc. forget marriage, it will just end in disappointment anyway.
Boy needs love, man. I can't do that.

Don't get married. Break the cycle guys. Rise above. Focus on TSR instead, less disappointment that way!

You don't need marriage to have love. If you really want a family, you can adopt or you can get into a committed relationship long-term without marriage and still have children. Or you can look into surrogate mothers if you want your own child to look after. You don't need marriage - it will just end up in divorce, expenses and disappointment. Keep that in mind if you get tricked into it - it's a trap!

But...but... I want a pagan-like, ancient/medieval Scottish ceremony in a forest with a druid! :cry:. Wife dresses up in those white, long dresses with flowers on her head and ****. I wear a kilt cuz it's badass and I have long hair cuz I just do anyway. We later take our clothes off and make lurve. It's all about the RP.

Seriously though, I don't really care about the papers and formalities if that's what you mean by marriage. I want to be in a committed life-long relationship if possible and that means marriage whether it's official and legal, whether you had a big fancy ceremony or not. I want the legal thing but it's not really required, it shows commitment and that you take this affair seriously. But it's not really needed.

I have my parents to blame for this. They've been married for like 30 years and although they have had loads of arguments, fights and so on they still are together.

I find that so beautiful, I envy and want it for myself .

Mate, just read some fantasy novels, I'm into that stuff as well. If I wanna live multiple lifetimes with ancient / medieval themes, I'll ask Alexa to read me something and fall asleep to it.

My parents are the only people I know who've got a successful marriage tbh. They've been married almost 50 years now and still are. It's just not the same nowadays though, most marriages (not half, MOST!) end in divorce EVENTUALLY. But I understand what you mean, I was exactly the same because of my own parents and wanting that same commitment.

Why is that?
For one, I really don't like the idea of either waiting a long time for that one lifetime partner or getting into a lifelong relationship young as things change substantially.
For five, I really hate the idea of spending 40-44 years in and out of relationships that are bound to end.
I'd rather spend 10-15 years doing a combination of dating and being single and then dating/marrying a lifelong partner.

I just think it's cute.

I know many couples who have been married successfully for 30+ years so my parents aren't the only ones but they're the closest to me and the biggest influence obviously.

I think the figure is 50% but it doesn't matter. 50, 60, it's still a scary number. So I know what I'm getting into I just don't think it has to be as morbid as you describe it.

And when it doesn’t spread you inject them with propofol.

5 and why is this even a question? It's better on every single level.
Care to explain how it's better, more variety, more romance? I think you're the only one with this opinion
