10 Black Men Discuss What Marriage Means To Them

There are a few reasons why I would want to get married. The first one is the comfort factor. To know, trust and believe someone is with you and only you until “death do us part” is a very comforting feeling. Another reason why I would like to get married is that I pride myself on never becoming or will ever be someone’s “baby daddy”. If I ever do have a kid/kids, I would want that to be with my wife and not someone who I’m not tied to. My last reason for wanting to get married is that I truly believe in the “build each other up” factor that a lot of married couples I know have. Not saying you HAVE to be married for that to happen, I have just seen from close friends of mine that have gotten married; the change in attitude, demeanor and drive for themselves. My cousin who is basically my best friend told me “It was no longer I had to do something for me, I have to do it for US” and that really spoke to me. So those are really the main reasons why I would want to become a married man.
