I Don't Think I'll Ever Get Married

    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...

    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...

    because..I really don't want to.

    on top of the thought of staying with just one person my whole life, I also don't.. trust others you know, I've seen countless relationships, proposals, and marriages and honestly.. someone stops trying in each one, or someone ***** up, and it falls apart. every time, this is...

    I know I won't ever be getting married.

    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...

    I just don't think it'll ever happen,

    most men are cheating players anyways, and the ones that say they aren't are liars. Maybe somethings wrong with me.

    I want to stay positive

    and my family says I should, but it's so easy to feel like singlehood will be the norm throughout the course of my life. People everywhere are telling me to meet someone (even tenants in my building are telling me that now).

    I travel far too much.

    .. And when I do meet a girl I wonder if she's the best for me. Some part of me doesn't want to settle and another part of me hopes that there is a girl that I'll meet that I will just know is it for me. Are men meant to even be monogamous? Is it a societal construct?

    Just got off the phone with my Mom.

    She asked me when's the date since she married my dad when she was my age. I dont have the heart to say to her that it's gonna be never. Because I dont believe in marriage. I dont believe in being together for forever. People leave in the end. Even if they stay, I dont ever...

    I really don't think

    that I'll ever get married. I just can't see it happening to me. And please don't tell me that I'm young and it'll happen eventually, because I honestly don't know if I ever even want to get married.

    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...

    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...

    Divorce rates in America are around 50%,

    When I said this to my auntie,

    it was met with explosions of confidence building tactics and, 'You don't know what the future holds'. It's not that I don't think people would want to marry me when I'm older, just that I don't place marriage as a life goal. The time has long since gone when a woman has to...

    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...
