12 Signs You Might Never Ever Get Married
Marriage definitely isn’t for everyone, here’s why.
Marriage is something we all dream about when we are young. We are not aware of the complications that life throws at us. But as we get older, the idea of marriage seems improbable for some. According a research done in USA, people below 30 are getting married less and less every year.
We have collected a few signs that point towards the fact that you might never get married:
Simple: You don’t want to
You have accepted the fact that you do not want to get married because in your own mind, there is nothing to be possibly derived from the bond of marriage. It is not something that you want in your future. In fact, you do not see the reason why people commit to marriage in the first place. The best part is, you are sure that you will not regret your decision later. So yeah! Why get married?
Single life works for you
You are happy! You see the couples around you and you don’t understand the rollercoaster of happiness and unhappiness. At least you’re happy in a stable way and you don’t see a reason to change this. Quite simply, single life suits you.
You are living with your partner
Why follow the old tradition of getting married when there is no practical use of it, in your eyes? You are already living with your partner and doing everything married people do. Even though people ask you all the time about your plans for marriage, you are happy with the way things are. Why fix something that isn’t broken? – Continue reading on the next page
Wedding seems impractical
The ceremony of wedding seems impractical to you. You don’t want to invite a bunch of people who you haven’t met in ages to witness your love for your partner. The whole thing seems like a waste of time and money to you. If you are already living with your partner happily, why change that?
You have no plans of having kids now or in the future. You know that once you do get married, you will end up having kids sooner or later. Even if your partner doesn’t want kids now, you cannot risk them changing their mind in the future.
Your parents are separated
Chances are that you have no faith in the institution on marriage if your parents are separated or divorced. You have seen how even the perfect of marriages turn messy and end up hurting the children, you would never want to put yourself or your hypothetical children through the ordeal that you had to suffer.
Your partner doesn’t want to
Okay! For argument’s sake, let’s say that you do want to get married but well your partner doesn’t. You are not the kind of person who would force someone into marriage. You are the kind of person who supports his or her partner at all costs.
Idea of love
You do not believe in lasting love. You have formed this belief that love fades away sooner or later. You have seen it happening to people and you don’t want the same to happen to you. In fact, the idea of love scares you because you think that it will never survive the test of time and temporary happiness is not worth all the horrible break-ups.В – Continue reading on the next page
Right now, you have not thought of marriage at all because it is not on the list of your priorities. You want to build an ironclad career first. You are too focused to achieve your dreams and there is no time or space for another person in your life anytime soon.
Lack of time
You are simply too busy to commit to another person. You do want a significant other but you know that you won’t be able to give them enough time or energy because of your job. Being in a high-stress job makes you want to be single until you start to have time to yourself let alone another person.
You are not ready yet
You’re probably not ready yet. Getting married requires a lot of pre-requisites to be fulfilled. You need to have a steady source of income and you need to have both financial and career security before you even think of settling down. Maybe you also want to own a house or an apartment of your own before you get married.
You haven’t been asked
Okay! Maybe you are with a commitment-phoebe. Everything is great in your relationship. You are living together, sharing chores and finances. In short, you two are acting like a married couple and a person who doesn’t know you’re not married, thinks that you are.
It is also obvious that there is a solid commitment and neither of you can go anywhere. However, there is one problem, your partner is not asking to get married, what’s worrisome is, that your partner doesn’t even show hints that he or she wants to get married. Well, maybe one day! If not, at least the relationship is perfect.
