    It's So Sad

    I used to consider marriage so 'official' and 'binding' and 'final'... but really, it's not, and I don't think you need to be married to see that. People fall in and out of love -- whether they're married or not. Not to say that I believe that all married people are...

    I Never Really Got The Point

    I've never really understood marriage. Why people do it. Why people think it's necessary. Why people aim for this as one of their goals. Marriage was ruined for me since I was a child I guess. Marriage touted to be such a special thing and yet, half of them don't last. I'm not...

    No Seconds Please

    Been there, done that, and gave it up for lent back in 1995. Just wasn’t my cup of tea I guess… or maybe the wrong flavor of tea.

    It's So Unnecessary

    Now that I am married I don't understand why I ever wanted to be married in the first place.  What did I think I would gain from it?  I don't even know what my reason was for getting married.  I was pregnant, but I didn't think at the time that it was the reason...
