    Living freely ever after :D

    Truly, i belive marriage is a completely unnecessary thing. All it does is create tension between partners. Anyway, no marriage, though kids arent that bad. You can always send them to shop something you're too lazy for :grin:

    I don't plan getting married per se. When it comes, fine. And it would be great if it would come. That is, should there be a right person. I don't get into relationships of which the only purpose is being in a relationship, so consquently I'm single for most of the time. I'm not going to change that policy, especially if it comes to marriage. Especially because there's no divorce from a consumed Catholic marriage.

    It will not be on a whim. No romantic stupidity for which you pay for the lest of your life. As I've said a few times already, I would sooner marry an old friend than a new crush.

    In short, I'm not getting tied down unless I'm sure it's the right one.

    Also, I understand why people find a wife or a husband before they get to old. After all, family to found etc. However, I'd rather stay free and unbound if it wouldn't be for something very real, almost tangible. Given my lifestyle and my prospects for the future, it is definitely not a good idea to begin a family just to have it.

    So, I'm going to stay open and flexible, but in no way specifically seek a wife.

    Note: having a relationship just to have one results in meeting the supposed right person when you are already with someone else. I am not going to face that.

    No girlfriend, no wife, no kids.
    No boyfriend either, if that's what you're thinking.

    I'll reply to this topic again in ten years.

    Err this question is a mostly yes question because everybody either does plan to (yes) or does not plan to (yes) in which case only those who are already married should answer no. Sorry I'm a grammar annoyance, though my own grammar is terrible too. Lol.

    Well I do plan to get married and to have two plus kids. That's what I hope anyway, though I doubt my girlfriend (who I am madly in love with) would see it this way, lol.

    I never intend on having any kids although I am sure when I am 40+ I will get a knock on my door with some dude telling me he is my son. I most absolutely positively definitely do not intend on getting married.

    Well, no, I don't 'plan' on it as such, but I accept the possibility it could happen. However, I don't really feel the need to think on such presently.

    I hope to get married and have two children (max). Once I've had 2 I'm getting the good old 'man' treatment to stop me making babies. Two kids stops you from spoiling an only child, three kids + stops you from spoiling yourself. A fine balance.

    Course, like Chev, I'm not going to get married for the sake of getting married. But unlike Chev I'm actually going to look for my bride-to-be.

    i intend on getting married when im about 30ish and i want to have 2 kids, no more, no less, because i think having one kid isnt very good because then he/she is lonely, but 3 is just too many IMO i think 2 is just right :)

    I am not sure if I want to get married... Until now I have always been sure on that I will not get married, but now, I don't know.
    At least I know I want children, about three of them...

    Being 15 I don't plan to get married anytime soon.
    But maybe in 5 to 15 years when I meet the right girl.
    As I am the oldest of 5 kids, I now that littluns can ruin your life; if I ever talk about kids, please get me sterilized

    Marriage certainly IS something I think about and it would be nice to have it happen but as with so many others, it must be the right person and considering I'm not exactly elated with my current girlfriend then I guess it's not going to happen anytime soon hey?

    As for kids, I'm blessed with 2 already - though unfortunately the mother of each (yes, 2 different mothers) duped me inasmuch as they hid their true selves until after they gave birth - and also stemming from the answer above, I would like to find the RIGHT woman to setle down with and have at least one more.

    I think one day I see myself married. Right now I find dating different guys more interesting than just sticking to one guy. As far as having children maybe one day but right now I am too much of a child at times myself. When I graduate from college and find my own support and carrer to fall back on then children seem more plausable. Most of the guys I've dated started off like Anomen but within a few months turned into too much Minsc. I thing for sure before I say I DO I would like to find a guy who I think WILL. Why a woman needs an education before marriage
