                    So true, the without the paper we would still be us. We were commonlaw before the ceremony anyways. But marriage gets such a bad wrap sometimes that I think it is far better than some people think. I have a friend pushing for marriage too, and a friend pushing for a baby. They are so focused on "the plan" that it seems they aren't just enjoying being together, so I hear you on that. Sometimes you gotta just let it be.

Anything else about marriage you'd like to say? i still don't totally see what all the hype is about or why some ladies feel the need to puh their S.O towards marriage. don't get me wrong, i love being married to my husband, but to me, that piece of paper doesn't make or break the strong relationship we already have. we would have been terrific without it.
                      So true, the without the paper we would still be us. We were commonlaw before the ceremony anyways. But marriage gets such a bad wrap sometimes that I think it is far better than some people think. I have a friend pushing for marriage too, and a friend pushing for a baby. They are so focused on "the plan" that it seems they aren't just enjoying being together, so I hear you on that. Sometimes you gotta just let it be.
