Not sure on mine. I certainly hope not.

Apparently most people ignore what is pushed on TV and social media since most weddings are very low budget. Just go to any courthouse and look at the line of people waiting with a few friends/family for their inexpensive wedding.

Most people spend very little on their wedding.

Re: Would you "advise" your daughters to get married.

I have told both of my daughters to please wait until after they get through college to get married. Other than that, I can't and won't tell them to "get married". They will be adults and can make their own decisions, but my "advice" stands. I will tell them what I think about their prospective grooms when the time comes. I'm sure I will do my due diligence in vetting them, too.

Funny story..., both of my daughters (currently 19 and 16) have brought boys over at times when they were dating. They have both said that their boy friends were scared of me. I have been told I have an intimidating manner about me, but I don't do that on purpose. I am strict, and a no nonsense guy, and I can spot a "player" a mile away. I know what goes through the minds of teenaged boys. It may have been eons ago, but I still remember what went through my head at that age.

I hope I've done right by my girls, and by all accounts from teachers and other adults they are two of best mannered, well-behaved, model citizens they know. It's all about being able to trust the values you've instilled in them, and trust is a must in our family. Your word is your bond as far as I'm concerned.

Should we have any children, I will let them decide for themselves but I will always speak of marriage positively. I'd also encourage them to take their time (2-3 years) and to never marry someone they haven't lived with.

In my case, I would have to amend this by saying that from a purely theoretical standpoint, that "marriage is supposed to be a good and noble undertaking," of both a holy and a rather serious nature between a man and a woman who unselfishly love and are truly committed to each other's welfare!

Re: Would you "advise" your daughters to get married.

Absolutely. I believe in marriage, and have raised them with the same beliefs. In my experience, parents are very influential in their children's future. I want my kids to date, fall in love with, and marry a good person.

Ciao,

Spicy

If she or he meets the right man or woman, they are a sexual match, and love being together, I'd say 'yes', get married.

You'll have that someone there when you are lonely, when you need sex, 50% of the bills / mortgage are covered, you can save and buy a house, option for kids down the road, and the list goes on and on.

Now marriage isn't for everyone. Not all would like to be tied down. Then stay single and only date.

But being single today is very difficult to buy a house and have kids. You'll be renting probably for the rest of your life in maybe a basement suit.

Strength and Honor. What we do in life echo's in eternity.
