    If your married then obviously somebody thought you were so dont answer this thread unless you admit to just wanting to show off

    I would say yes. If I met the right person, why not? But, they would need to be very special. I'm not paying for a wedding when we can be perfectly happy, living in sin. Also, not sure this is a women's issue, unless there's another angle to it you've not explained?

    I only wanted input from women. For my own nefarious reasons to be sure.

    Been married for 18 years, but getting a divorce, so I guess I once was but am not currently marriage material.

    That's a very politically incorrect way to turn someone down.:wink:

    Well im asking you so my opinions has nothing to do with it.

    It would be a blend of your own opinions and what you have or have not been told by your partners because I imagine somebody asking you to marry them would have a fair bit of impact on what you yourself think on the subject

    Mmm, I asked because, for me, men are marriage material not because they think so, or anyone else (who cares about those girls?) thinks, but what I need in a man. So, my question was sorta asking the same of you.

    so, under your narrow criteria, yep, I guess I am. ;)

    no. unless you plan on getting book deal after the divorce.

    the oddity is, i've had men and women tell the exact opposite, that i am someone they could see hitching up with.

    so, is my "no" based on my completely lack of interest in marriage? maybe. is more likely that i know, better than loved ones, the horrible bastard i actually be. :smile:

    Yeah, me to. Have done it for over 14 years. We're now married for over 2. The real question should have been "Does marriage mean anything to you, and why?"
    If you do'nt want to be with the person, nothing can force you to be with them.

    Not according to my government.

    Nor the member here - I won't name names - who said he was into redhead bears. I thought I was in with a chance so I posted a face-pic. He said, "Nice picture." and I never heard from him again! Ah well, we're on separate sides of the world so it was a stupid fantasy to begin with.....

    Divide the number of marriage available women by personality traits that we match up on and desire each other by the chance I will meet them, carry the one, and you have your answer for me.

    Depends on who the subject is, if they want me, and if I want them. If we are crazy for each other enough, it doesn't matter if you are "marriage material" or not, you'll make it work. There are so many different personalities out there, you can't make a blanket labeling like this (or any of the other labels that go on here). I may be a decent fit for one person, a terrible fit for another, and a near perfect fit for someone else (no such thing as a perfect match).

    I believe so I have very traditional values and love to cook and clean and don't believe in nagging.

    No, I am not marriage materials -- I have been asked too many times to marry. For me, I would rather live together: whatever you bring into the relationship, that is what you take out. For example, if my man brings/buys a 60 watt light bulb; when we split, he takes his light bulb: nothing more, nothing less.
