marble or not!!!!!

We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and I absolutely love the look of marble for my center island. My cabinets are close to a Dove White and I've chose enhanced brushed black graninte for my cabinets on the perimeter of my kitchen. For my island my cabinets are a dark walnut (really dark brown) so I was thinking of doing a marble on my island, but have been told by soooo many people not to!! That it's impossible to maintain especially with children. For those who have chosen Marble for their kitchen do you have many regrets? And what are the issues I'll have to worry about? is it really that terrible to have it in my kitchen with two young kids? I just cant seem to find another stone that gives me a similar look. THanks in advance and feedback for greatly appreciated!

RE: marble or not!!!!!

I put marble in my bathroom (used by 3 teens) It was a mistake. There are marks all over it. If you decide to go for it, suggest a honed - not shiny - finish.
