Songs Not to Get Married To is the fourth studio album by American rock band Reggie and the Full Effect. The album still has the catchy songs that every Reggie album has, but the concept of the album is a lot darker than past releases from the band. Right before and during the writing and recording of the album, James Dewees went through a divorce with his wife, Megan. Most of the songs on the album deal with the anger and sadness of going through a divorce.

The album sold rather well, reaching #25 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #26 on the Billboard's Independent Albums chart.[2]

The song "Get Well Soon" is featured on the Xbox 360 game Saints Row, and an altered version of "Take Me Home, Please" was used in the GameCube version of The Sims 2.
