    I don't like the Idea of being a man's property.

    I know that nowadays that's not what marriage is about, but I have a fear of ending up some one's property. For other people marriage is totally okay, if you wanna marry don't let me stand in your way. But I'd rather not be chained to someone.

    Well my marriage was hell.

    Ok. That may be a little unfair. The end of it certainly was! I'd watched all my families marriages fall apart. I have seven cousins across three families. And all but two had to go through their parents separating permenantly. As well as my own parents. I always swore I'd never...

    I don't believe in marriage.

    So many marriages in the US end in divorce or people end up staying together miserably ever after. My parents hate each other and I don't want to end up like them. I don't think a piece of paper should define your love for someone.

    I Cant See It .........

    Is it really possible that you can be with ONE person for REST of your life without you getting bord from the same thing everyday. Its like the same meal 24/7. I think marriage is overrated. I also think that these days, its REALLY rare. -just a thought 👈

    Marriage is a scam. Would it be nice to be

    stuck with someone forever? Sure. But I can do that without a legally binding document that means absolutely nothing except "hey at least we each get half of each other's **** if this fails!"

    If the right guy came along I wouldn't hesitate

    to be in a long term relationship. But marriage I will never do again. I don't need a piece of paper to define my life and relationship.

    I've only witnessed the institution of marriage

    The people that I see

    who stay married are either cheating or not satisfied/happy.

    I don't but I want to fight the thought.

    I don't believe in marriage because one, I don't think there are men who can equally share housework with a women (really, not conforming to the conventional thought that women should do more housework than men); second, I think love fades out. I don't want to think this way but...

    I think marriage is a trap.

    Who really wants to be stuck with somebody for the rest of their life? What's the point anyway? I believe it's a waste of money and time. you spend stupid amounts of money for one dress and one day. Then you have to pay for cake and food for people who act like they give a sh*t...
