Did you get married for love?
We like to think that everyone gets married for love, but that isn’t always the case. Maybe love had something to do with it – or not. Maybe it was a combination of reasons. I’ve listed seventeen reasons why people get married. Can you add to the list?
Reasons Why People Get Married:
1 – Love
2 – To have children
3 – To help raise the child/children they already have
4 – Pregnancy
5 – Money/Financial support
6 – To stay in the country
7 – To try to hide the fact that they are homosexual
8 – Were Drunk or high on something and it sounded like a good idea at the time
