This is an analytical exercise dunce.
Dood, I met someone, I fell in love, we had sex, I married them , we had fights, we had sex, we had kids, we bought a house, we had sex, we have two cars, we work, we go out, we have sex, we go on vacations, we are planning for the future, we are raising our kids. I have yet to spend one minute thinking about what the benefits of being married have been. It is something that should just happen, it's not comparing a condo rental to a house purchase. You are either too young, phucked in the head about relationships, or have not met the "right" person yet. And yes, the right person could turn out to be the very wrong person later on. It's called life, you have to be in it to win it.
