I was reading about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt today and it made me wonder, why do so many people seem to have an aversion to marriage? It seems like gay people are gung-ho about getting the right to be married and straight people avoid it like the plague! What are your thoughts? Do you think being married in any way benefits your children or do you think it doesn't matter? I am a big fan of marriage and I think it makes all the difference in the world. Not because a piece of paper changes anything, but because I found that the type of man who says, "I want to marry you and be officially committed to you" has an ENTIRELY different attitude than a man who says, "Let's move in together". Of course, if you marry a JERK, you are no better off, but if you take two basically good guys, one that wants to move in and one that wants to marry- I'll take the marrying kind, hands down. Thoughts?
