Re: Marriage, why do people do it?
why do people get married? im asking because i have not once ever felt the need to sign a peice of paper binding my financial future with someone else. if love is real, why do you need to have a license for it? its complete nonsense from my point of view.
What are the reasons some of you have gotten married? is it love? fear of being alone again? financial reasons?
he was the first man that came along that didn't strike deep terror in my heart when he brought up the M word. But in retrospect, who cares? I have never felt the 'need' to be married. Do believe that it is an unnatural imposition. Would have loved to have done without it. And, am ashamed to say that I was sort of jostled into it. He wanted it (or thought he did), my mother was all for it, and I don't think I was strong enough to stop it from happening.
I am in love with him, and was, back then, too. But that is not enough to get married on. What you need is committment to the institution, and more importantly, to the partnership with your spouse.
