"I feel one aspect of marriage that is underrated is the friendship part, and after 27years if the love isn't there, the friendship should be able to keep the marriage."


"That one is happily married does not guarantee it will last forever. Things go wrong in the course of living. People lose jobs, go broke, dislike what they once liked (person, food, job, etc). when it comes to marriage people act like things don't go wrong in other aspects of life."


"Another excuse for you not to get married. lol."


"In all honesty, so long as you accept the ups and downs of your partner, marriage can be bliss. The problem is not truly willing to "compromise " Accept that your strengths are his weaknesses and her weaknesses are your strengths. This will "solidify" what u have."


"Whether you like it or not Uti you will get married."
