Curiosity has me asking this question since my eyes happened to glance on the DVD Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? So why did any of you get married or want to get married?
Out of pure curiosity, did any of you who are/were married ask your spouse why they married you? What was the response given?
It would have been easy to annul if you were drunk.
Did you get drunk before or after the ceremony?
The first time? The wicked witch of the west lied to me and told me she was pregnant. The morning of our wedding, she lied again and said she had miscarried. I married her because I was a stand up kinda guy, and was trying to do the right thing. Without a doubt, the biggest mistake I have ever made. Trust me when I tell you, NEVER marry a woman you met at a swap party. Yes it was the 60's and I was stoned most of the time, but even I should have known I was getting conned. She later became pregnant for real, and I put up with infidelity for 7 years because I had lived through multiple divorces as a child, and was determined that my child would not be the product of a divorced home.
OK, now that I have that off my chest, I married the second time (after I had SWORE that I would NEVER remarry) because I found a woman that taught me what true love was. It took her 2 years for me to teach me the lessons because I was a very stubborn student. But when the lessons finally sunk in, I knew with all my heart that I needed to be with her to survive.
Because I thought I had met the love of my life. Does anyone do different?
Nine years later not so much...yet another learning experience.
My brain was probably fried by the tropical sun since I married my then spouse during a summer vacation. I knew him physically for only 5 weeks. In retrospect, I was too young and wet behind the ears to have made such a major decision even if it was with my mother's approval and prompting.
