I don’t want to title this post, “why I won’t ever get married” because if you know me at all, my mind constantly changes. It’s what makes me who I am.
I saw this image on Facebook and my thought was, “not me!”:
I mean break up, yes of course that is a possibility, but the idea of marriage? No thank you. Here are some of the reasons why marriage isn’t right for me:
1. I don’t believe in Divorce.
Do I think it’s wrong if others divorce? No. I don’t care about what others do because I am a big believer in people needing to do what’s right for them. Divorce is just not right for me. And do you think a man is really going to make that jump into marriage with me when they find this out about me? I don’t think so. This would be a red flag for them. In my mind, if you’re going to make the commitment of marriage then you’re going to work your ass off to make it work. And who wants to be miserable the rest of their lives? Marriage is too big of a commitment in my mind for a lot of the people of today. Love is not enough.
2. I hate weddings.
OK that might be a slight exaggeration. Maybe I just dislike them, but the idea of being in front of all of those people sounds a little insane to me. I am not one who seeks attention, in fact, I avoid it like the plague. I guess if I ever did get married, I’d elope. Eloping does sound fun if you’re going to leap into marriage.
3. What happens when love does fail? Or falter at least?
OK OK OK, so the Bible says love never fails. I get that, to an extent. The hopeless romantic in me wants to desperately believe that, but my logical mind says no. Or maybe it’s illogical, who knows? The point is a lot of the time when love ebbs instead of flows, people want to back out. Instead of work through it they can do stupid things like cheat or become emotionally unavailable. Marriage used to be more valued in times of my grandparents. My parents have been together many years, but it’s almost a loveless marriage.
And to nicely sum up my thoughts on marriage, I leave you with this:
