I was trying to come up with some great reasons to get married, since I’ll be publishing some great reasons to get divorced in the next week.
Here’s what I came up with…
Some great reasons to get married:
That’s what I came up with.
Marriage is a ridiculous notion to me. It’s ludicrous to think any one of us could choose a person in our twenties or thirties to marry and have that union last forever. It might – but, it probably won’t.
Besides the few financial benefits marriage doesn’t offer anything positive to an existing relationship from what I can see.
Instead, marriage adds:
- The stress of knowing you must live together since you said you would in front of everyone you know – and each other.
- Inflexibility. You’re no longer yourself. You’re co-joined to another person. No big decisions are ever made on your own. It’s limiting.
- Permanency. There’s no other decision that, once made, is to be permanent for the rest of your life.
- Responsibility. You’re responsible not only for your own happiness, but you have a shared responsibility to keep someone else smiling everyday too. That’s a tough job. Sometimes impossible.
Marriage is a forced promise that should never be made.
I say forced because American society still insists upon it. It doesn’t matter much which church your family followed, or even if they were atheist or agnostic – marriage is still expected to some degree. There is only a minority, a growing minority admittedly, that doesn’t see marriage as a goal for two people in love.
Anyone want to take a stab at filling in the blanks for great reasons to get married?
Best of Life!
