Is there a difference between spending all your time together and being married? The answer is yes. Once you tie the knot, the whole mechanics of the relationship changes. You are tied to each other, you have made a commitment, and you can’t simply walk out when things don’t go your way. You’re in this for the long haul and that commitment makes all the difference. The degree of love and affection that you share will intensify immeasurably. You will find that there is potential in your relationship for the bonding of two souls within the security of marriage.
