I've been in a relationship for over 4 years and we are happy living together etc - doing the 'modern thing'... BUT I still think that marriage is important and we are planning to get married. Its about wanting to make a life long commitment to someone that you love. I don't want my relationship to be "easy come easy go". Its that easiness that given marriage the reputation that it has now - not everyone who gets married divorces 18 months later!
