Obstacles for entering into marriage!

Can anyone share to me your ideas about the obstacles for entering into marriage?I would like to broaden my own ideas about this. Thank you so much...

Hello...
I'm Not realy sure what you are asking about....
People are different. We all have different values and ideas.

Do you think about religion??? Children ?? Economic?? Age ?? Culture ??

All I know is that with love; respect and honesty... the rest is just to talk about and agree about..  :)

I don’t understand the question

I was hoping to find a wife in India where I plan to move & operate a business.
I like eastern wemen, their graceful & petite, polite and respectful and friendly.

I understand that you would need an o visa to marry & a b visa to make a business.

Welcom. What you need  i will help you

Financial, family,..depends on how u look at things. i guess the real obstacles come from within. whether u wanna make it happen or not. whether u have faith in ur partner to spend ur life with him/her.

Hello
Mariage is à institution and as you know for entering all thé institutions there are some diffculties and obstacles .....but after mariage really .......depends on you , whether you will happy or sad......haha

Maaaaate!

There are no obstacles.  Just enter into it.
Obviously you'd be an idiot to enter into marriage if you didn't love the person and have had spent time with them.

Are you compatible? Well this all depends on your culture(s).
Some, like here, it's quite comment to live together, have sex and have kids before you get married.  It is not frowned upon.  As such, even without living together, you get to spend lots of time and learn and know the person before you do that.

The worst thing to watch out for?
Over time people change. You, your partner, everyone.  Life changes.
You can't forsee this though.  So. If you love them. Just do it.

pffft @ "obstacles"

I think the greatest obstacle is you because you define your obstacles. For instance you decide what age, race , faith or even political affiliation suits so anything less of what you want becomes a stumbling block.
Never fear to go for that that you didn't want to have, try it out and your experience will help you make up your mind.

So many obstacles definitely. But 4 things would make marriage work.... love , mutual respect, shared vision and continuously working together on making life better. Easy to say these things I know. When it comes to reality it's much much harder of course.

Hey,

I feel the biggest obstacle in marriage is the phobia for a life time commitment.Other than that in few of the countries age,religion,society norms also play the role of being a hurdle.
What makes a marriage successful is the undying love,respect,trust and understanding between 2 people. If you love someone don't fear to get married...if you don't have that someone yet,go meet up people....life is too short anyway ;)

That quote there from Patricia is gold. Pure gold.
It's beyond what she says though.

Too many people have a huge list of items they want to tick off for a partner.  I have a few items on my checklist that I cannot do. (example: An alcoholic or a woman who is not maternal).
That's it! 
Patricia, your comment is fantastic and very insightful in a way many people don't ever get to realise for themselves.

Too many people try to search for someone just like them.
I would HATE to marry someone like me.  It wouldn't work.  I don't want to share my hobbies and interests and I have found so far that the best relationships I have had (including a 20 year marriage which is now over) were with people who were not like me at all.

Would probably be the inconvenience if you want to travel to another country where you do not need a visa but your spouse would require long painstaking visa applications and interviews before they can travel with you.
