I’m 23F, I’m not inherently focused on marriage and relationships as a lot of young women around me are.
I didn’t even expect to be in a relationship until I was a lot older and had myself figured out but I’ve been in a relationship for 4 1/2 years now with a very sweet man.
We’ve brought up the topics of engagements and marriage but idk…it doesn’t really do anything for me. Like marriage is something that is supposed to be about love and commitment to another individual yet its so commercialized and idealized as this “happily ever after” but it’s so unrealistic and sets such high standards.
Not to mention weddings are the biggest rip-off in human history. It’s just so fake to me, and a ring seldom reflects a person’s loyalty.
I’ve heard time and time again and have had married men reach out to me and my friends have been cheated on by their spouses and people getting divorced idk…it makes so jaded about it.
I love my partner a lot but to me marriage is a joke and doesn’t mean anything, I’d rather be with him for however long instead of marrying and going along with this system of what we are supposed to do.
Lol…does anyone else feel the same? I feel in the minority because everyone is like omg marriage!! I’m like lol no.
