I think marriage is overrated. All it is to me is a signed document and a “promise.” But when one is getting married, how do they know the future? They don’t. I do not think that people have to be married to have children, I don’t think people have to be married to be in love forever. Now that I’m thinking of it…Who even created marriage?!
Who would think of it? Let’s go to a church, sign a paper, and celebrate us being in love? It doesn’t make sense to me especially in today’s culture. I feel that marriages are made to be broken, and if you grow and evolve as a person, chances are you are going to shy away from your partner at one point or another, and then it just puts you in a sticky situation.
In addition, I also agree that gay marriage should be legal, but I don’t think it should be such a big deal. Why spend your time fighting for a paper, instead of being happy and living your life to the fullest?
I know I am being very salty right now, but it’s because of things going on in my life, but I don’t feel comfortable going into detail. I think marriage just makes everything difficult, I think fighting is stupid, and I think you will always grow apart no matter what. Then you’re just “stuck” with them until you practically go bankrupt filing for a divorce.
I have seen too many couples fight, too many divorces, too many people fall out of love to believe that marriage is a good thing anymore.
No matter how fascinated you are about that “happily ever after,” marriage does not guarantee you everlasting happiness; it just makes you seem “normal.” You are always going to be happy over some things, and unhappy about others.
While reading an article on the Internet, I came across the idea that marriage is artificial and unnatural. There is nothing more natural then falling in love, but signing a paper to promise your partner to “love each other until death do us part,” is not natural at all. I think you should just let the love run its course, if it stays it stays, but if it dwindles, it happened for a reason.
On a side note: I would love to be the princess for the day, wear a beautiful dress, and drink champagne with all of my family and friends, but I think you’re lying to yourself, and believing in something you wish was true.
