    Simple question - do you enjoy being married?

    I've found that overwhelmingly opinions are either silence about their marraige (which I interpret as not bad, but not good) or being told to never get married should I have teh chance. Both from males and females.

    What I don't seem to hear is anyone preaching how great it is. Which is odd b/c there's all sorts of preachers in life. Diets, lifestyles, hobbies, television, people love to tell you about how great something is. Oddly, no one preaches about marriage.

    So in an open question to get a better understanding - do you enjoy it?

    I am very happy. I was not a good single person, I didn't really enjoy dating. there are a few things that I miss, but overwelmingly I am happy.


    but I wouldn't rush into it. you need to find the right woman, and you need to sow the oats. I was 30 when I got married.

    Even though my own marriage turned out to be a real buzz-kill I'd highly recommend it.

    I love it. When I think back to all the experiences we've shared, the great kids we have, I would never want to go back and do anything over.

    I am not going to lie to you though, I am quite the gourmand when it comes to fresh gash and I occassionally miss sampling some new stuff but my desire for that is no where near my desire for my family.
    Sex wise, the great thing is that my typical worse case scenario is a BJ with a little prostate massage [​IMG]

    We don't all have backs as flexible as yours, however.

    I think I met the girl I'm going to marry, but it was only 10 days ago. Plenty of time to be sure, yes?

    me too. I think it works best if you dont change anything after you get married that wasnt broken to begin with. too many I know get married then they feel like they have to change certain things in the relationship because they are "married" that they didnt do before they were just dating

    +1 and also +1.

    I think a bad choice can ruin a life, but a good choice can completely enrich a life.

    I think most married men look fondly back on the days of new pussy, but a good marriage more than compensates for that IMO. I'm glad I waited until long after most of my friends were settled down, and already had kids. No regrets, and the additions to all other areas of my life that marriage brings, far outweighs any whim to conquer new territory.

    My wife and I have been together uninterrupted since 1984, when we were both in college. We finally got married in 2002...I popped the question a year earlier on a hilltop in Bora Bora at sunrise on St. Valentine's Day. Our son was born four years ago.

    It's been a long, wonderful trip...and I look forward to so many more amazing years in the future.

    It can be done if you have the right girl, and if there is something inside you that makes you try to be the right man.

    So much emphasis is placed on finding the right girl. What about becoming the right person who is ready for marriage, I think it was overlooked.

    ^yes. i know too many people who were co-habiting in complacency and then just figured marriage is the next logical step.

    my wife and i share nearly all of the same interests and have a similar sense of humor. she is happy with sex less frequently than I, but i wouldn't marry a woman who wanted it as often as me. would be a psycho.

    Cornball.

    We have been married since 92. What I put inside my wife is what makes her the right woman [​IMG]

    Don't kid yourself. By the marrying age, you are who you are and she is who she is. You can both make small changes but no one is doing a 180 nor should they be expected to.
