I Don't Think I Will Ever Get Married

    Doesn't Bother Me

    Marriage, no marriage, whatever. As an asexual I do not require sex, and beyond that marriage would bring companionship, and I am independent enough not to require that either.

    In My Culture The Marriages Are Arranged.

    If I find a guy I like within my culture then I can marry him, but if I don't then I will most likely get married but the marriage will be arranged. I don't want to get married because of this. I'll be miserable. I just have a real negative mentality when it comes to love. I'm...

    Doubt It

    I don't know I just doubt that I ever will... Maybe it's just because I'm young. My mum always told me "you marry your father" = Her dad was an alcoholic and she married one after she promised herself she never would. Maybe that's why. But if I fall...

    Its True.

    I think my life is so sad That i don't think i will ever have my own wedding. I feel so ugly. I don't know who in their right mind could love me. Maybe I will be some old lady with cats. Yet I see some many odd looking couples that I feel just a teensy little tiny bit...

    It Just Won't Happen.

    I am 43 years old.  Whether I look actively for someone, or sit back and don't look, or feel sad, or happy, or go to places where singles are, or stay at home...it's always the same.  I never have found a wife and it's obvious that I never will.  I get so tired of...

    Why?

    I come from a broken family. I only have one memory of mum and dad actually being happy and hugging each other (something that surprised mum when I told her; she thought that I only remembered the arguements that I hadn't repressed). But, who really needs a piece of paper to...

    I Really Don't Want To Either

    Perhaps it's because I haven't met the 'right person' yet. I'm in no hurry to meet him either. I like dating though, meeting and getting to know new people. It doesn't get repetitive for me because every guy is different. I'm afraid of getting bored once I get into a...

    I want to wake up everyday knowing that the man I am sharing my life with, sincerely wants to be with me. I don't want a piece of paper or vows that we exchanged shackling him to me. I was married before.  The piece of paper and our vows meant nothing to him...

    It's Just Not Going to Happen, Is It?

    It looks like it that I will never get married.  Firstly, there is no man to talk about - I have been single for the past 5 years.  Next, I am at crossroads where career/job is concerned.  It's all a blur for me right now and it really is frustrating.  I never...

    I Don't Want to Get Married...

    because I really don't see the point.  Even when a relationship is going well, marriage doesn't seem to make it better - usually it's the opposite!  Plus I see very view of examples of people who stay HAPPILY married for long periods of time.  I'd rather be in an...

    I Doubt It!

    I can't even picture being in love, living with someone happily, being married. I get lonely but I just don't see it ever happening for me. I don't think I am able to trust someone on that level. Maybe someday I'll be proven wrong!

    You Get Used To Being Alone

    I've been alone for so long that I really wouldn't know how to act if I ever found someone I fell in love with. Don't get me wrong, I deeply admire married people who've stayed together through the good times and bad. My parents did it. So did both sets of my grandparents. I...

    since 3 years ago. It's not because I haven't moved on because trust me, my life has nothing to do with him anymore. It's not that I never find anyone attractive either. But I guess it has something to do with that as well. I mean, I get attracted easily but then I easily back...

    And why do I think that?

    Because I have no desire to. I know a few couples who are utterly miserable in their marriage and I don't want to take the chance of that happening to me.
