Congratulations Mr GaGa to you and your fiance.

I'm surprised you've received so much negativity from people in your life. Can't people just be happy for others? It's one thing to give advice, but outright negativity is not helping anyone.

Congratulations, Mr. Gaga! I wish you all the well!

And honestly, don't worry about what you've seen and what others have told you: each marriage is a different marriage. From what I gathered, most marriages that fail do so because either the couple doesn't know how to communicate, only did it because it's what is expected and not because it's what they wanted, or because they only wanted a wedding and didn't thought of what comes after that. For what you told us, you and I assume your now fiancÚ actually want this and want it for the right reasons. Obviously, like any relationship, a marriage needs to keep being nurtured, but you seem like someone who wants to do that. Good luck and I hope you and your girlfriend get to be happy together for a long long time!

Also, where in the world is it rare for late people in their late 20's to have been married and/or already have children? Let alone possibly divorced already? Different countries sure have different expectations, don't they?

Since you're a cop, my first advice is, don't bring your work home with you. Cops can burn out their marriages with the stress they bring home. Leave it at the door.

That said, if you are both good people, your marriage should last. No reason for it not to. Be home as much as you can and pay attention to your wife.

Anyway, congratulations, I hope it works out. You're lucky, lots of people your age are not in a position to get married with the way things are these days.

Well, not to bring Mr. Gaga down, but:

Domestic violence is higher too.

I'm sure he has already read up on this.

But Mr. Gaga seems like the sort of guy to make a marriage work. Good luck to him.

Congratulations!

I'm not married, but I've seen a fair few successful and a fair few unsuccessful marriages, and I think that what everybody has said about honesty and communication is spot on. All I'd add is some good advice an old friend once gave to me about marriage and life in general: have realistic expectations, and you'll probably be fine. (But from what you said it seems there's nothing to worry about there.)

Congratulations. A bit of happiness in a year such as this can never be a bad thing.
