Why do you need marriage?

I don’t think that anyone should be talked into marriage.  If you don’t want to marry, you definitely should not do it.  You know what you want, right? So ..I don’t understand why people try to convince people who do want to be married, that they are wrong for wanting to get married.

A couple I know have been together for a couple of years and one of them decided that marriage is not what he wants.  This is causing quite a dilemma now because he wants to convince his significant other that being together should be enough.

What do you do when you realize that your views about marriage has changed since you first started dating someone? How do you explain the reason you want and need to get married?

A lot of people change their outlook on something, but when that has an impact on the person you are with, how do you figure out what to do next?

kimmie well if Maria knew and did nothing people should nto be mad about it and mind their on business. How do we know she hasn’t been sharing her cookies? LOL

Maria: “Are you going out again tonight?”
Ahhnold: “I’ll be back!”

PR – Maria ain’t the issue right now. We’ll stick to not liking Arnie for his indiscretions…lol

and

Nope this probably won’t hurt Arnie too much. I think Tiga is the only man I’ve seen dragged through the mud for indiscretions. Everybody else seems to get off rather easily.

It’s about time for Maria to get her groove back with a much younger, much more in shape, young tender. lol I heard Arnold is supposed to do another installment of the Terminator but i’m having a hard time wrapping my head around that because he just ain’t no spring chicken anymore

If you look at recent politicans who have cheated on their wives, what do the men have in common? They all married women with impeccable credentials. Bill to Hilary, John Edwards to Elizabeth, Spitzer’s wife is a lawyer, the governor of SC wife is in finance and now Arnold to Maria. The point is, as I have discussed with my wife, the woman they are having an affair with doesn’t need credentials, they have that at home. At that point, it’s all about the sex. (IMO)

Simple man....

What does a man get from marriage?

Simple: a wife provides a good life for her husband. The man provides and protects the means for her to do so, with full confidence in her. Read Proverbs 31, “A wife of noble character, who can find?”

Find a woman like that. They’re out there. They seem well camouflaged sometimes, but they’re there.

I wouldn’t say she looks bad. She just looks her age. Like a 56 year old woman who hasn’t had any/much work done.

I was just talking to one of my coworkers about it. She said if it’s one thing the Kennedy’s can do and that’s handle a scandal!LOL!!

Purple – True, it really won’t hurt Arni because his political career is over anyway. How it was handled won’t hurt Maria either. You said she did nothing, what was she suppose to do? Their marriage is over, she’s getting paid. The ones that may be hurt are the children.

SCool – I agree, Tiga deserved all the mud with all them chicks coming out of the woodwork. He’s doing fine too, even if he never wins another tournament. He just built a 50 million dollar home. Dating a stingy-haired blond chick he knew when she was just a kid a few years ago that lived down the street from him & Elin. Yep, he’s doing just fine!

Arnold conquered everyone in the Conan series and Red Sonja, he killed the predator and came back from the future to save the world in the Terminator. He also supported legalizing weed. He deserves all the side puddy he can get. He is the man! How many times did Maria save the world? None she is just riding the Kennedy name. LOL
