I Am Afraid of Marriage

    Almost all my friends got married at an early

    age, some of them even dropped out of college to live "THE DREAM". I call them my friends but the truth is; I don't consider them as such, but I just don't have another name for them. I mean, my interests and personality don't really match theirs, I guess we had few things in...

    I fear making a mistake,

    and losing him somewhere along the way. I won't realize I lost him, and he may not tell me his discontent. Communication would become trivial, and he would grow to dislike me. Soon, we would argue and grow even more distant. And in that distance, he would find someone else...

    I am scared of marriage,

    I almost hate it. It is because I do not want to form a scattered family, they are not even a family, they hate each other, I do not want to bring such thing into existence, I do not want to build a miserable home, a depressing one, a home where good feelings are forbidden. I...

    Fear of Marriage

    I could love someone with all of my heart, but I'm just too afraid to get married. Always have been. Maybe it has something to do with my parents getting divorced when I was six. I just don't feel like I could trust someone enough to take that step.

    This weird chick I know,

    whom I usually engage with in terrifying small talk, told me the other day that she stopped fighting with her husband, so I was like; Wow great news! She added, well, yes, we discovered that he has some issues with his heart, I don't want to be the one causing him a heart attack...

    Marital Fears

    What I fear the most about marriage presently is dictated by the past. Not just my past but the history of my family. I shouldn't allow it to influence my thought process but it does. I have carried on with my life alone for so many years, I don't even know what "marriage" means...

    Seems Unnatural...

    I don't have a natural urge to get married. I don't understand why marriage is natural to most people. I don't get it. Marriage just sounds insane to me. I guess I'm not human. I wouldn't want someone permanently bound to me until death. That sounds very sick to me. I would never...
