Anybody here decided not to get married but build a family, have kids, stay together etc? Basically just not have the papers to say so.

Any benefit to your family as a whole in terms of getting grants, lowers taxes, etc? Example getting government grant on homeownership because the threshold only covers single income

Hope you aren’t using this as an argument against marrying someone. If so, they deserve better

Idk. I mean if it’s just paper it’s paper. These days it’s a title society places value in. Half fail, many cheat, and it’s been refined once. Who cares? Marriage imo is old fashion.

Of course I don’t think he even knows that his tone is off.

Question for all the men out there. Or maybe a doctor lol..I (25F) recently started seeing someone (28M), attempted to...do the deed...twice last weekend, he couldn’t get hard both times. First night I thought he just had too much to drink, tried again in the morning, but he never really got hard and then ended up finishing before we got anywhere. He smokes a juul like crazy, which I heard can lead to troubles in that area. Maybe he doesn’t actually like me? Who know...anyone have thoughts?

How do you know whether the relationship will lead to marriage or if it’s time to move on? I’ve been dating my SO for 5.5 years, living together for ~2 years, and my SO has had stronger feelings for me than I have for them almost the entire time. That’s not to say that I don’t love them, but I’ve felt the pressure to “catch up” on saying “love”, moving in together, and now they’re wondering why they’re “not good enough” to marry and how don’t I know after this long. Any thoughts? Struggling here
