I believe in marriage, even though I married a psycho, the first time. I suggest any of you wanting to get married, wait until you are at least 25. At that point you are not a total dumb ass. 30 is really ideal in today's world.

Yes! Make sure both of you are ready. 12 relationships before settling down is what the experts say. Just remember that it gets much harder and is a lot more work than dating. You have to be able to accept their faults. That goes both ways.

Yes, if you put a dick in your mouth, you are gay.

Which experts are those again? That's a new one for me.

I'd say a good percentage of people do this but not nearly as much as you think.

I know a lot of people that meet someone in their late 20's and just say fuuck it, they're good enough.
This just speaks to my point, that's the wrong reason to get hitched IMO

if you make more money than your future wife, marriage is the largest purchase you'll ever make. all the coupon clipping, black friday deals, ebay sniping would be pointless if u married and then divorced the wrong person

If you set your standards high for perfection you're only setting yourself for disaster. What happens if she doesn't meet your high standards 20 years down the road? Are you going to divorce her?

In the end, we all compromise on the small things for a healthy relationship. I wouldn't want to marry someone who's exactly like me, that'll be like sucking my own d1ck.

So when you meet and hear people saying "as soon as we met, I knew", they're full of sh!t? I've heard it countless times and even my dad told my grandmother soon after he met my mom that he knew he had found his wife. They've been married 30+ years now.

I think there is a lot of truth in the saying of "you just know"...I think that you feel that early on in most cases.

And in saying you just know I feel like that's a soul mate type thing. Maybe some of the married guys can chime in but my friends & relatives who are recently married have harped on their husband/wife being their best friend. Call me crazy, but settling for someone isn't a person I would refer to as my best friend.

My wife is definitely my best friend.

Also, she claims she knew I was "the one" after date two or three. And that was almost seven years ago now.

That's what I was saying. I just think less people do this than you think.

I think a lot of people say this. Don't get me wrong some people just luck out like your parents but I still don't think it's "meant to be" in anyway.

I don't know, I'm a romantic at heart so I think there's someone for everyone but at the same time things don't just happen. You have to put in some work in order for things to go well; you're not going to meet the girl of your dreams without getting out there and wading in the pool.

So you're suggesting most of your friends, co-workers and siblings got married for all the wrong reasons?

How would you know what the rights reasons are if you've never been married?

I see this trend almost continuously with people that get married in their early 20's, as they grow up and change, by the time they are in their late 20's they are completely different people.

The moral of the story is be single and get to know yourself and what you want, then find someone that meets those requirements. I have been told for years that "your standards are too high" which is nothing more than an attribute to people giving in and settling.

Nobody can understand how I found my unicorn but she had the exact same mindset.

Hold yourself to higher standards, you deserve exactly what you get.
very very well said.

I agree with this. I've been trying a lot more lately and it's working out well for me. See thread in love line haha

Yeah I have, that's a good problem to have. Sh!t with my girl hasn't been great lately, doesn't help that we're 2 hours apart either, so I keep telling myself I just need to get out there. It's weird being back at school and not knowing anyone, makes things a lot harder. I used to be able to walk into a few bars and know at least a couple girls, or at least someone who was with girls, not the case any more.
