Don't think. Feel...
It's like a finger pointing to the moon.
Don't concentrate on the finger or you'll miss all that heavenly glory.

Marriage isn't overrated, it's a wonderful thing that definitely lives up to the hype if you go about it in the right manner.
So many people think it's just the marriage part that makes it so good, when it's actually all the other stuff. They get into it wrongly, ruin it, and bring the whole institution's reputation down with it.
If anything marriage is currently underrated. For 1000's of years humanity has had systems where a man and woman have agreed that they like each other enough that they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
Knowing that you are loved, and giving that love back in return, is a powerful thing giving you the confidence and security to live your life to the fullest.
You don't get a heap load of crap when you get married (besides some china and boring wedding gifts that aren't man orientated), it's to do with how much you love each other. Marriage doesn't actually DO anything but tell God "yeah, these people love one another. Aww."

Marriage is overrated but my G/F wants to do it . Actually you can fill out a prenup if you dont want to lose half your stuff. Though if you fill one out things will be a bad start cause she will think you dont trust her. My mom and my moms side of the family have all divorced their first husband. Makes me wonder if my first marriage will be a flop?
Welll we been toghether for 9 years and she is ready to settle down. I think I am ready but not so sure lol. Its really a wait and see.
