One day yeah sure why not
I think I'd be worried that of might change things though, actually I dunno.. depends on the people. A lecturer at the college I used to go to has been with her partner for 20 years, and they have two kids together, but just don't feel the need to get married.
Funny this thread, Jay and I were talking about this last might in bed.
Rawr, I'm being called in, I'll finish his on my brake.
I'm not against the idea of getting married, but I don't care much about it either. Like AndThen, marriage doesn't hold any particular significance to me, but I'd be willing to do it for the right woman if she wanted it.
I never add friend codes.

Also, Brandon...yep, but we don't go there.
Weddings don't have to be religious. I'm not a particularly religious person, so a church wedding was not important to me. My wife is Catholic, but was married once before, and divorced because of a cheating husband. Since she is catholic, a divorce is a sin that has a lot of crap tied to it to be accepted again in the church. Because of that, and the fact I'm not catholic, or a member of any church, a church wedding was not an option for us. We were married outside in a city park next to a waterfall and pond. The cost to have the ceremony was not much, and the scenery was spectacular. There is also a old school building we could have moved to had the weather not cooperated, but we lucked out and it was a beautiful day.
To me marriage has little to do with religion, but more of a personal commitment you are making to each other. And as I said earlier, we have been married for 17 years. I totally understand the young folks here not wanting marriage, and I was the same way. As you get older, and you finish school, or have you life established, that is the time things will start to change, and you will see things different. At least that was the case for me.
