Cohabitators - Why did you marry?

17 years ago

After reading the interesting thread on living together before marriage, I got curious. What was the driving factor for marriage for those of you who cohabitated before? That was always my mom's question -- why buy the cow?

Yes, my DH and I lived together before marriage too. I'm just curious to hear from different people. You've been living together for a year, a few years,....when did you decide and what made you decide to finally tie the knot? And how did the issue come up? Were there ultimatums involved? Or did it just evolve naturally? Was it a legal thing? A money thing? A love thing?

When in cohabitating is just living together not enough? Why did you want more?
