This topic kind of reminds me of my views on marriage – if that makes sense? I grew up like every other little girl, dreaming of the day I’d get swept off my feet and marry my dream husband. We’d live happily ever after…
Now, many years later, I am old enough to know that in REAL life that’s not always how the story goes. My parents divorced when I was just two years old and in my lifetime I have seen countless relationships, engagements and marriages crash and burn right in front of my eyes – this doesn’t paint a very bright picture of love and marriage in my mind.
Most marriages today end in divorce. I don’t know if I want to deal with that. Break ups suck! I can’t imagine what divorce must feel like?
I think I may just be happy to go through life with a partner, someone I can commit to and be with for the rest of my life without the formality of marriage. I mean in today’s times what does marriage really mean anyway?
