    My wife's Grandad (gramps) said at our wedding reception, stick to your marriage vows made between the both of you and god and you will have a long and happy marriage. My wife and I have been married 15 years this year and he was married to his wife 68 years. Somethin in it

    I take marriage very seriously. It is a promise between my husband and I in front of God that we will be together through sickness and in health. For better or worse. I have been with my husband for 14 years now. We have been married for 12.5 years. I plan on a bright future together with him no matter what.

    I'm sure there must be great deal of pain that leads to divorce. Not to mention afterwards, but dealing with breaking a promise must be better than living in misery. Maybe not all cases but I hear the stories.

    Yes, and the biggest commitment anyone can make. Marriage isn't something you take lightly. You need to work on marriage it just doesn't happen all by itself. When I said I do...I meant I do...

    Yes it's a sacred promise between two people (and God for those who believe)
    Breaking this promise only should be done as a last resort

    Does commitment and promise mean the same thing? I think marriage is more a commitment to a lifestyle.

    Many say that money is why many marriages fail. I disagree. I believe most marriages fail due to the fact that many people don't take the time to really know each other before marriage. It is mind blowing but I have met married couples who didn't even know the basics about each other such as the desire to have children or not and just the basics like what do you want to do in life? Travel the world? where to live? where do you want be as a couple in ten years?

    two seperates become one to love and to cherish till death do you part.

    Marriage is a covenant between two people who deeply sense that their lives are, and always will be, shared as one.

    Marriage is the fulfillment of a dream and an awareness that reality also can bring us the beauty of dreams.

    Marriage is a promise that today is the beginning of a future that will nurture love, respect, honor and mutual faith as the greatest strengths for its foundation.

    Marriage is an understanding between two sensitive, intelligent, and caring people who have evidenced that true love can survive all obstacles and grow stronger with the passage of time

    It is a solemn vow, and is entered into way too lightly by a large portion of our society.
