It’s a beautiful thing when two people decide to spend the rest of their lives together. My parents have been married for 35 years which is an accomplishment in itself, but that does not mean that marriage is for everyone. Some people should never get married, because being in love with the idea of love is not a solid foundation for future bliss.
Many people have no clue what it takes to be in a good healthy relationship and for that you can blame the media and their parents. Why blame the media? Well, you hear about how easily relationships fall apart owing to irreconcilable difference. What that really stands for is ‘too bloody lazy to try’ and ‘I didn’t realize forever meant forever; I thought it meant until I got gatvol.’ If your partner beats or emotionally abuses you by all means leave them. For the rest, you just never should have gotten married. Why blame the parents? You watch and learn whether they like it or not.
I do not know how I really feel about marriage. It works for some people and not for others. I don’t see the need to get married if you have a good relationship other than for legal reasons. Marriage should not change your relationship and how you and your partner treat each other. How does everyone else feel about marriage? I don’t really care if I never get to wear the white dress. My friends who get married know I will be there to celebrate their day with them… Without a doubt!
