Top Ten Reasons To Get Married: Family

Here goes, the number 8 reason to get married:

No.8 - Marriage gives you a platform to build your bloodline on

OK, so technically you don't need to be married to have a family, but marriage is still the standard method for starting a family. The nuclear family, despite its flaws, remains a sought-after model. That's why having kids is another argument in our top 10 reasons to get married. Being a father is a dimension of manhood that just about every guy wants to experience -- and marriage is the most stable and secure environment in which to start a family.

This is an easy one for Mandi and I. Both of us feel like we were put on this earth to raise a family. Now, as most of you know, we will face some challenges starting one, but we are ready to take that part of our journey head on! There's still some debate as to when that journey shall commence, but I'm guessing it will be sooner rather than later. I mean, I'm darn near an old man! I need to get this party started before it's too late :)
