Besides "I loved him/her", why did you decide to get married?

We had lived together for 5 years, I was 31 and wanted kids. He did too so we finalized our relationship. It has been a good 30 years.

He was literally down on one knee. And he was awful handsome.

He made me laugh...still does. 28 years later, it must have been the right decision. He's a keeper.

Because I wanted to have babies with him and be together for the rest of our lives. And, because he always makes me laugh :)

Honestly? Because we were at the point in our relationship where we had to either break up and move on or get married! That's what you did back then - dated till you broke up or married. It was easier to get married - less stressful and hurtful. That was 37 years, two children, and two grandchildren ago. Once in a while I wonder "What if", but for the most part we're chugging along just fine.
