Here's some advice coming from a man who's been married for nearly six years....

Get a good lawyer.

Seriously though, in my married lifetime I've already seen 3 couple marry and seperate during that time. Marriage is a commitment that's give and take. It's exciting to get married but to stay married is a different thing. I strongly advise going through marriage counselling first. get the skeletons out of the way and find the holes and patch them up before you may encounter then at the wrong time.

But in any case, congrats. Love your wife and family first.

Something like that.

It's great.
this sounds like a mistake...

live together for a year first...see if you both still feel the same

Couples who lived together before marrying have nearly an 80 percent higher divorce rate than those who did not and they seem to have less regard for the institution, according to a study of Swedish women by the National Bureau of Economic Research here.

p.s. She's a huge NBA fan, we watch games together religiously - well at least the Raptors ones.
Does she have the same love for Rasho that you do?

And Catz, congratulations! Not that I can give any advice for anything, but good luck with it all.

You guys planning to meet up in June? If I was going to make it down to check out some ghost shit and what not, June would be the best.

the only thing the article has to explain it is this:

Quote:
''We felt that people who were living together more than three years, that they got married because of peer pressure,'' Mr. Bennett said.

I guess that kinda makes sense...they have just been living together so long that they kinda feel like they are obligated to get married when they really don't want to...

hmm...

interesting stuff for sure

You're a lonely ****ing idiot. Perhaps ask if we live together before spewing your negativity out in my thread. We've lived together for 8 months now asshole.
