My wife and I dated for 5 years before we got married. BUT, we started dating when I was 17.

Simple solution to all this....DO NOT GET MARRIED!!! I have read almost every post in this thread and some of you guys some where along the way have lost your damn minds!! EVERYTHING changes over time (and a very short time). Get your toys before you get married and have a family cause once that happens the only camaro your gonna be buying is the toy ones.

No i'm not married. But all of my friends are and anytime we get to talking about cars and stuff one of them will always say "man i wish i would have gotten that before i got married". I already told my girlfriend that i would rather wait and get married and have my toys now then to get married and buy my toys when i got one foot in the grave lol.

Oh the 911 is to small then get the Porsche Cayenne? What do you do for a living? Parents paying for her school? You every think that when someone looks at your girls ring they will think $24K or just dang thats nice what was it $5K?? People think my wifes set is always more then what I paid.


Well Dark Knight is mostly right. Seems to me first was the family car, then a few houses(sold and bought), then remodels and upgrades to the house, then a kid, and now after 3 years of waiting I get to wait unitl 2009 for my Camaro.

One thing is I have given up debt to have a future. Yes I have mortgage but in spring of 08 I will be all free! Only things to pay are the house, small student loan(2.2%) and the rest goes to COL.

EVERYONE who is married says not to get married.

every one of my married friends save for 1 or 2 (who did it for the money, military wise)

im not big on porsches in the first place, all i see when i see a guy cruising in a porsche is usually "get out of my way, you only bought that cus ur 45, spent more time at ur business than with ur family, and you need a reason to try and look cool...just like the other guy over there who can finally afford one, And is driving 45 on the highway"


I dont care what other people think when they look at her ring, Im not getting it for them, its for her. honestly, she has told her friends that she doesnt care if its a $0.50 ring from a vending machine, as long as its coming from me.

she cares about material items. any woman who says otherwise is lying.
as far as the ring goes, thats something she would like. and like I posted earlier she had said that if she's going to wear a ring the rest of her life, it should cost the same as a car so she and I made a joking agreement that id get her the ring and she'd pay for my camaro.

as far as our relationship now, she would take whatever ring I gave her, but I dont want to "upgrade" later on. now if I get her another one later for an anniversary or something, thats a diff story.

and yes im 22 and we've been together for a year. we've also been thru long term relationships before and we arent getting married anytime soon. its one of those things that if we know we're going to spend the rest of our lives together then when we get married is irrelevant. we're saving up now so that we can both get new cars in a couple years.

im not going to get into a pissing contest with you about my decisions.

as far as getting my toys before I have one foot in the grave, when you look at marriage like that, no wonder.

is it so unbelievable that you could get married to someone who supports you in your passion for cars? my g/f doesnt care for my cars, but she supports me in my endevours.

I wouldn't say he'd think different. I think that he'd think..."crap"

Of course, I hate arguments, so I don't understand why your trying to fight him on this, SSMUFF, why not just be happy for him - right now, here, not after he "get's divorced" - besides, it's not like the situation effects you at all.

AND - Why would you root for someone to get divorced?!?!? It's a 50/50 rate right now, why wait on one more?
Seriously, though...of all the people replying to this thread...there has only been one with a negative overall response. Who's that?

"I will leave it at that"....

No, I've heard it for years, it's really depressing...and as for as I'm concerned, I'm don't plan to quit as quick as the divorced 50%. I mean, come on people - work at it - unless it's so bad you want to drive your Camaro off a bridge! In that case, leave the car on the bridge, jump off yourself.

Seriously, 50/50? that's scary.

yeah, the news show I was watching said the divorce rate was 50/50 and that 60% of people cheat on their spouses. i mean COME THE F*@# ON! does the institution of marriage mean anything anymore? people these days go thru marriages like cars. Im just glad that my girl is Catholic (dont knock it, im agnostic...dont knock it) and has told me repeatedly that she wouldnt divorce me no matter what.


then again, maybe that means she'd kill me in my sleep...

Married 5 years, no kids (not planning on it either, yes both of us), and I still get my toys... my pc was my major toy up until I fell in love with my cammy. I've probably spent 5k on my pc (4gig ram, 22inch widescreen lcd, 2 TB hd raid, dual core 64bit amd proc, dual SLI video cards). She knows I'm going to spend 30k +/- 2k on it and that it will be my baby. She got her dream car (05 tacoma) and now its my turn. Marriage is all in how you deal with each other.. to many people just get married because its what "everyone does".

Met my wife at 17, engaged for 3 years, married at 21.

I tell people that when they think they are ready for marriage, go live together for 2 years, or get a dog, or something like that where you have to share responsibility and see how things work and then decide.

What's an institution of marriage? I thought we all do it for money...oh, wait. Crap - that plan fell through. What about because we all "fall in love at first sight" everytime we see someone...oh, crap. That doesn't work. But who gets to know the person first? Come on, that's for sqaures

(I hope you recognised the sarcasm...I layed it on really thick )

But, looking closer...

Congratulations.

oh, and an info update, we have 2 dogs now. She had the one for a few years, then when we moved in together we got the bassett hound puppy.
