    Would you marry a drug addict who had no intention of stopping?

    no Now if he was HONESTLY trying to stop I would work with him but would not marry him unless and until he got clean.

    Why would anyone in thier right mind, decide to marry a drug addict ? That should be an automatic red flag. And no...love is not enough for a marriage to work ... it is only a start. You need a whole lot more than just those feelings . Some mandatory things for a marriage to work include : Huge responsibility, integrity, commitment, steady employment, deep personal relationship to God , no neurosis, good emotional health, being on the same wavelength for the future, strong morals , strong ethics, same goals, as a minimum. Entertaining a Drug Addict for marriage is not Gods plan for your life -- he desires two people who are are emotionally and spiritually mature . Please dont consider marrying anyone who shows a red flag like this. You are far better off on your own.

    Nah.

    I've had to fight addictive behavior a lot in the past, I wouldn't want to live with someone else who was in the grips of addiction.

    A woman addicted to drugs would be worse than a woman that shops all the time. So no.

    I understand addiction. I have an issue with Tramadol but I want to stop.Its not really an anti social drug. I'm not robbing to get it its prescribed. It doesn't really impact my moods and temper either.

    However, if i met a chap who had substance abuse issues/anti social issues/mood issues and no intention to stop no i wouldn't want a long term relationship.

    i'll add to that though that more often than not love is not a rational thing. Most of us just kinda.. fall into it and all caution is thrown to the wind.

    Never. That would be a disaster waiting to happen.

    No. Drug addiction is a dealbreaker.

    For me it's not the drugs, it's the addiction.

    Addiction of any kind is a huge dealbreaker for me.

    Would I marry someone who did drugs occasionally and wasn't an addict? Possibly, it would depend on a number of variables about the individual.
