Marriage is not for everyone.
It’s almost every girl’s wish to get married to the guy of her dreams in an amazing wedding. But for me, marriage is not a priority in life, and it will probably never be. Here are my reasons:
I don’t want to get stuck in a rut
Arguing over the same things over and over with my husband is not the life I envision for myself. Let’s face it; married couples argue over the same shit constantly.
“You don’t clean up after yourself!”
“You are a nag!”
“You always forget to take out the trash.”
“You never pay attention to me!”
Seriously? I can’t deal with another person’s irritating habits and petty problems for the rest of my life. Marriage is forever until death do you part. No thanks. I’d like to be able to just pick up and leave when I’m just not feeling the relationship anymore.
I like my freedom
Before doing anything, I’ll have to consult my husband. I won’t be able to go on unplanned road trips without informing my husband. For the rest of my life, I won’t be able to do whatever the heck I want without being concerned with the needs and wishes of my partner.
Marriage adds a lot of red tape and bureaucracy in the relationship
When I get married, I’ll have to change my name on my documents since I imagine I’ll be taking my husband’s last name. That’s just too much work. Besides, I like my maiden name, and I would like to keep it. And no, I won’t be comfortable hyphenating my name.
I believe marriage is outdated
Society is beginning to embrace different types of relationships. They are embracing gay relationships, single parent relationships committed but non-marriage relationships, among others. People are slowly moving away from the idea that women have to get married to have children or a stable, loving relationship. They are beginning to accept that it’s not the only path to follow.
