    Yes, you are right about the meaning, but it's extremely vulgar American slang.

    Yes, It means that My life would have no meaning and would be upside down without your presence. The word 'Suck' is an American Slang (Abusive), though here it gives a different meaning.

    Re: My life would suck without you

    I disagree that it's extremely vulgar nowadays, at least here. The word "suck" no longer has any necessary vulgar connotations, and means in that context "to be extremely boring" rather than "perform fellatio" which is its original meaning.
