To start it off, I probably have to say that I’m only 18, hence I’m not married (I’ve never even had a normal relationship). But I do have some thoughts on marriage and commitment.
Sometimes I don’t really understand why people are getting married nowadays. Women can work and earn money now, so they do not have to get married in order to free their parents (so that a man would worry and support the woman). (OMG, it’s so hard to explain, but I really hope you know what I mean). Women have rights now and we are not objects made to ‘babyborn’.
Secondly, few decades earlier if an unmarried woman had a baby, she was thought to be a whore and wasn’t treated as a person ever since. She wasn’t able to have a normal relationship with others or find a good job. Now things are obviously different (in developed side of the world, I can’t say anything about tribes of Africa or forgotten regions of far east Asia). Nowadays society does not care if you have a baby or not and doesn’t treat you differently, thankfully (although it still is a problem in some companies, but it’s a whole other story).
A man isn’t thought to be somewhat different if he doesn’t have a wife (or a husband) by the age of 40 or more (or a serious relationship really). So, the world evolves really quickly now! And it feels soo good.
So, these are some of the reasons why we don’t have to get married. But, at the end of the day, I still want to wear that beautiful white dress…
What do you think about marriage?
