    I'm tired of being judged

    and pressured to get married just because I've been with my bf for 4 years, live together, and have a kid with him.

    No, I don't want to be married.

    I don't want to be bonded. I have dated men all my life but lately I started to connect with the same sex. It started emotionally but there were elements of physical bond later. I feel nothing wrong. I just got so tired of the men I was with that it made me lose hope in...

    Why are some people acting

    as if marriage is the WORST thing to do? Why do you think you're tied down or trapped when married. Some people are saying they're glad they are now free. lol were you some sort of slave captured by your slave master (husband/wife) ? Anyways I'd love to get married in the future...

    I'm not married, but I see

    so many young women my age that are. Most of my friends are married, but they really don't have a career. Granted, I am happy for them and respect their choices, but I can't help but wonder if many young women today are marrying for the wrong reasons? I personally am not ready...

    Sometimes I wonder if I

    even want to be. It just seems like marriage complicates life more then it needs to be.

    But I was once upon a time.

    I am not a fan of the institution by any stretch of the imagination. Not to be insulting to those who are married and think it's great, but I find the union barbaric. I can only speak for myself. However, with that being said, I would invest the rest of my life with one man...

    I've been single since 2005.

    I haven't been on a date that long either. I don't need a man or a woman to tell me what to do. I am happy on my own.

    I'm not married... When I was younger (before I

    had kids) I never wanted to get married, I had no intentions of ever getting married! To me, marriage was stupid & all it was to me then was paper, I would rather keep my last name. But now that I'm older, it's all I want right now... & it's not happening. It makes you question...

    that I'm not married. Some people look at a woman my age and try and figure me out because I'm not. Some have a quizzical look on their face. I am just beginning to come into my own & I don't see that happening if I had a traditional partnership right now. Mind you, this...

    Sometimes it's been disappointing

    but now that I am more independent, I'm realizing at times how good the freedom is, no husband, no kids. I can do whatever I want whenever I want.

    I'm not marriage and I probably won't get

    married. Marriage ain't for me, I'm not saying I can't stay with one man NO I'm not the cheating kind. It just doesn't mean anything to me, you don't need a piece of paper to prove your love to somebody. I just can't imagine myself getting married.

    What’s the point of marriage anyway?

    It doesn’t add anything to a relationship. These days it’s just a piece of paper and a few differences in your legal status. It means some judicial changes and a few benefits with your taxes and stuff. In some way I miss the old days, where marriage was supposed to be this...

    1boy and 1 girl, and I'm not married. Haven't even been on a date for working on two years now. I probably never will be because I believe in things like teamwork, fidelity, perseverance, understanding, and effective communication.

    Nope, I'm not married.

    BUT, I hope to get married to a man that truly loves me, and I truly love him. I also want both of us to be happy most of the time and be able to talk. I need to marry someone when I'm absolutely, positively sure I want to. I'd probably be thirty, but that's okay.
