I Don't Believe In Marriage

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 87 People

    Working in a banquet hall one would think is

    magical. But in reality, every wedding I arranged pushed me away from the thought of ever getting married. Now this is entirely separate from my parents not working out together and every other couple that I don't see working out... Ever.

    Kinda Funny

    I was at my mom's house with my boyfriend and I told her, "Marriage is so unnatural. It's ungodly. It's an abomination. Men and women shouldn't be together for such a long time." She didn't like that.

    Society's Decision

    I have gotten married twice to the same person. Both times we have done it to be together by law in order to have the ability to live together and meet certain requirements. We love each other to an extent but marriage has made us hurt too much. Society's expectations on what...

    I Use To

    I truly use to believe in marriage. I wanted to be the person that would find the person to spend the rest of their life with.  To be able to share their dreams, and make their dreams my dreams too.  I wanted that more than anything. In college, I met this man, and I...

    I Definitely Don't Believe In Marriage.

    Over the years I have come to the conclusion that marriage is not a necessity and in some cases it makes things worse. People used to marry because their church told them that was the done thing. Nowadays people use marriage to settle themselves. They spend all this time wooing...

    Marriage Is Right For Some, But Not Me

    As a young girl, I came to this realization.  All of my little friends would play wedding, and really think about their future husbands and families.  I could care less about these things, and was more interested in climbing trees, playing in the woods, and sports...

    Was Never A Big Deal To Me.

    As some girls, it seems almost a right of passage, to make out and fantasize the extrevagant weddings they shall have when they're older. Speaking of their dreamy man, and how they would love to be proposed too. To me, I never understood this inconsequential event that they so...

    I think marriage is something tough to embrace

    though I am in it. It restricts people under made up social prejudices.

    To me, marriage is TOO binding.

    Honestly, how many people can actually be happy together forever? The answer is 50%. half of marriages end in divorce. I believe that being in an unmarried, open relationship is the best thing for anyone involved. "cheating" cannot happen in an open relationship. Nobody has to...

    Sharing My Views

    I suppose I don't have an experience related to marriage, and only one long-term relationship that wouldn't be ready to progress to matrimony now even if I was looking for such a course. But feel bad discussing my views with my partner, when I know he doesn't agree with them and...

    Future Concerns

    I mentioned this in my other post for this group, but I have concerns about in the future, when I and my boyfriend are out of college, and therefore more marriage-eligible, that it will start to be expected from our families. If we are still together at that time (I say that...
