Why did you get married?
I have observed that after women break the age 25 mark their desire to marry grows exponentially each year. I have observed women analyzing the “marriageability” of a man after the first date or ending an existing relationship because the guy wasn’t moving towards marriage fast enough. I asked,why do you want to get married? The answers were elaborate but can be simplified down to status and security. As these women get older the word “single” becomes increasingly disturbing which causes their own insecurities to rise and desperation to set in. The other reason is that they crave the security of the nuclear family structure (father, mother and children). They want to raise future or current children in a safe and structured environment.
Where’s the love? Does a title and/or security replace the emotion that is suppose to happen before the contract of marriage? Is there and unwritten time limit on how long people in love can date before signing the papers?
What are your thoughts?
