    Already married, I was 26 at the time and we'd been together for five years, and living together for almost as long... It was our tenth anniversary of being together, and our fifth wedding anniversary this year...
    Met at uni?

    I don't have one either at the moment, but I'm still young so I expect there'll be quite a few in between now and when I get married so i don't expect the next guy I come across to be 'the one'.

    We met whilst I was at uni the first time round. She already had a degree, career and all that gubbinz, although I guess her career didn't really 'take off' until after we met.


    Oh and we met in a nightclub, I suppose you could say that its been a one night stand that's lasted ten years. Well she had actual food in her fridge, which might also explain why I've put on at least three stone since we've been together...

    No, I won't be marrying anybody. Although I might just stay with her forever. Not sure how good that is compared with a meaningless contract, however.

    Marriage is far from meaningless, apart from anything else it literally means that you own half of each other, or in more literal terms half of your total combined assets. This apparently is one of the things that tends to put men off marriage, that and the fact that it costs as much as a pretty decent car... Although having gutted, extended, rewire, replumbed, replastered and generally rebuilt the inside of our house, I tend to see £15k as the cost of the further extension that we couldn't quite afford, or a decent kitchen...

    The whole jointly owning your assets thing won't really matter unless you're planning to get divorced, in which case you probably shouldn't be getting married....

    no, he doesn't have enough potential to be rich. i want an old rich man, so i can be a kept trophy wife, spending his money on clothes and spending my days lazing on the riviera.

    Haha! Pragmatist!

    No, I just don't want to. We've been together 10 months (or over a year depending where you count from) and we both know we're going to break up at some point. We love each other to whatever extent we do but I'm fine with that outcome. We're not having problems, much the opposite, but I just don't want to be with him forever, nor him with me. People say we're being stupid and "oh you may as well just break up now then because you don't have a future" and whatever, but we do, it's just the near future rather than the distant one. I don't see the point of depriving each other of each other while we don't have to, if that makes any sense, it does to me at least.

    Did your wedding cost 15k?

    I just had to say, weddings don't 'have to' cost as much as a car ... ours cost £100, which is the fee for the registrar.
