    Marriage is just so overrated... There are three types of people... there's the type that adore marriage and children, they type who says they doesn't, but deep down do, and then there's the type that actually KNOWS they don't want marriage and kids... I'm the third type...

    Independence

    I've been single all of my life, and I'm pushing 30. I don't have many great relationships to speak of. I'm really not looking for that special someone presently. Most of the fellows I grew up with married in their early 20's and now have toddlers. I'm not jealous by that fact...

    I think I'm just meant to be one of those

    people on this Earth that lacks the adequate people skills to maintain an intimate relationship with a "significant other". Although I'm only sixteen, I can't help but think about my life in the distant future, if I ever get there. I'm just not "wife material", I guess. I think...

    I Fear

    I fear I may never get married because I can never truly trust someone enough to ever marry them, I also understand the perspective that people can live together for centuries and never have children and never split apart though either. I guess my perspective on marriage is that...

    My partner of nearly 9 years

    and father of my two children will not marry me because he says "WHY would I marry you? How can I spend the rest of my life with someone like you? I can't stand you." In the next breath he could say he loves me and plans to be with me forever. I can only think he won't marry me...

    Twice Is Enough!

    I've been married twice, and I found out I'm not really the greatest husband. About the only thing I really excel at is the bedroom activities. I don't regret having gotten married, but I learned a lot about myself and the wives I've had, and now I'm happily single. But I don't...

    For Not?

    I have a bunch of reasons for this. And no, it isn't because self-esteem issues. Here are some reasons why this isn't going to work out: 1. I'm a child of divorce. I had to watch my parents fight for almost 20 years. It was the ugliest thing that you can put a child through...

    I have known my entire life

    that I would I would not ever get married. As I have foreseen the many men I have been with obviously didn't have strong enough feelings to pop a question. That's ok I guess. I think finally I found Mr. Right.

    25 Years Old

    I always just assumed that by 25 I would be married. My parents were married at that age and I guess that's why. I still live at home but there is a very good reason for this. With the economy the way it is I can't afford to live on my own and I my parents need help supporting my...

    This is my second marriage; we’ve been married ten years.  I love my husband but I would NEVER do it again. If it ends for any reason, I’m done with marriage.  If our marriage had a contract expiration date, there is NO WAY that I’d extend the contract...

    which I was fine with in my early twenties.

    After being in the military for a long while, alone, and having lived everywhere that I felt exotic enough for me, I just feel so empty. I get to live like a bachelorette, old panties on the ground, beer and cereal with Sunday football. It's just become so boring. I'm 26 now...

    The Difference Between a Best Friend and a Spouse

    Your best friend is someone you can have a knock-down drag-out fight with, tell them to **** off, and not speak with them for two years, knowing damn well that the moment either one of you are in trouble, you will be there for each other.  A spouse is someone who you fight...

    The tradition of marriage means very little to

    me. What an odd ceremony, is it not? "A celebration of love," they call it. "A merging of two families." Most weddings appear to be more like contests to impress, a show, an excuse to spend as much money as one can afford on something money can't buy--true love. Is it not...

    Thou Shall Get Married Is Not Apart Of The Ten Commandments

    Marriage is over-rated. I grew up with a father that treated my mother like a door mat and he trained my brothers to do the same to their women. I watch my brothers beat their girlfriends down with words and their fist. If this is the life I have to look forward to being, in a...

    Overrated

    Unlike most people I do not think about marriage at all. It seems like a waste time. Basically its just a title doesn't mean that person will stay faithful. In this day and age it doesn't seem like anyone stays faithful anymore. The fact that some people will try to justify...
