Why do women marry men that they don't love?

I have heard 2 women say that they got married even thought they didn't love the man. Can this be true or they just don't want to admit their in love? I don't believe them cus girls are so emotional. If this has happened to anyone, please tell me why would anyone marry without love?

I married my ex and I was not in love with him. I loved him to a point, but was not in love with him. I had not been on a date in over 2 years, I had no other offers and my daughter really liked him and needed a dad. So, I consented and we married. 11 years later, I could not handle the fact I was still not in love with him and many things had happened over the 11 years that made me glad I was not. It was easier for me for the divorce. My daughter saw what he was doing to me over the years and she was glad we divorced. He did adopt her in the beginning and now, she wished he had not. The man I am now married to is more of a dad to her than my ex ever dreamed of being. She has even asked for her last name to be changed.

So, that is my story of why I married a man I was not in love with.

They marry for a roof over their head and stability for themselves or even their children. Anyone who thinks love is the only factor soon finds what happens if ends are not met

Some girls want money, or are just really desperate or some are even trying to impress there families. It all depends but yes its true. I havent done it personally but I think its really wrong

some women only marry men for money.
cause it was a arranged marriage(:

1. Most women marry for money
2. Others marry for stability (note: see No1)

People dont take the word love seriously anymore. why they would marry without love...maybe because...their idea of love is so tainted and wronged by the media and other electronic sources they THINK they're in love....idk...

Not girls..you mean woman.
1 Security
2 Money
3 A daddy for their child or children
4 an honest hard working man with a nice home.

In the end love changes..people grow apart and the children come first.
Women & Men get too comfortable and let themselves go. Many reasons .

it doesnt happen to me or will never happen either. but i know for a fact that some women prefer to marry a man they dont really love, there's a lot of consideration why, ie. Money, Age, Time, Nobody likes them excpet that man or they've been bruised from their past and most likely changed their beliefs in LOVE. They're thinking they will learn to love the person eventually, or its better that the mAN loves them so much more than they love them in that case they are safe from being hurt!

money, physical attraction

I agree with another answer: Don't draw too many conclusions on the basis of 2 data points.

However, women and men marry for many reasons, and usually for more than one reason at a time. Some people marry to get away from someone else (bad parents), some to improve their lifestyle and security, some because they don't think they will ever find their true love.

And yes, some marry for (at least what they think is) true love.

Interestingly arranged marriages tend to last longer than non-arranged ones, though much of that must have to do with the culture they happen in.

And, if you're feeling cynical, you might come to the conclusion that the best person to marry is the one that you like and know you like, rather than the one that is pure chemistry. Pure chemistry has a habit of turning into vapor.

There is nothing saying that the person you are madly in love with is the wrong person - but your love will completely obliterate your ability to be objective about their traits and therefore preclude you from having a clue what they would really be like to live with 1 year, 10 years, 50 years from now. It'll be a crapshoot.

If, on the other hand, you can look at the situation objectively, you might have a better chance.

Still, it would be nice to be madly in love with the person you've been with for the last 50 years. Something to dream about.

cuz they just think there hot((nice bulge))

You sure made a lot of generalizations about women based on 2. Nothing you said describes a single woman I know.

2009-02-26 04:25:23 +0000
Some just take what in front of them
In the moments of loneliness
You should know one of the woman's weaknesses

Alot of them can't stand those cold and dark nights
They need body heat, etc.....

Better to have some than nothing, I guess!

Love is more than just a funny feeling. After having married for what I thought was love, money is looking real good right now.

LOL " girls are so emotional." and men aren't? Men cry in the dark (even if they don't admit it). But to answer your question, women/men marry people they don't love. Why? Because they are crazy or because they don't want to be alone (which still isn't a good enough reason).

2009-02-26 04:22:50 +0000
Easy... Because they did not want to go thru the pain of breaking up with the person... That is very common....

to catch up with moving time as they &get supported.
