I get different responses to this question depending on how well I know the person. ...so I hope I get somewhat honest reponses since this is the net.
If I ask one of my robotic corporate co-workers, they say something like: "Its great. It takes a lot of work, compromise, and commitment, but it is wonderful". If I ask them about some of the negative points of marriage such as the nagging, no variety, being stuck with the same person, etc. ....then they say: "You're just not ready yet".
If I ask a friend of mine who is married, then the tune changes. The tell me things like: "Oh man it sucks.".... "The first five years were o.k. but now I'm just going through the motions".... "Enjoy single life as long as you can. Marriage is one big trap. People want you to get married only because misery loves company" ..."You need a wife like you need a hole in head. Don't ruin your life"..."Once you've tagged your wife 500 times, you completely lose interest"....and on and on.
I happen to be 29 and single. The closest I came to marriage was living with my ex for a year....and it sucked. I was slowly becoming Al Bundy. ...or Hank Hill: My only solace was home theater and home theater accessories. Personally, I don't see how it enhances your life other than having a family.
What are your opinions on marriage? Are you TRULY happy or are you just going through the motions? Everyone likes having someone to come home to but is it REALLY that much better than being free to date whoever you want? ...or just being able to be by yourself and not be bothered for a while?
