Thanks for reading! I definitely don’t think that marriage is a coveted prize or is something that’s compulsory for everyone. In fact I’m not that keen on the idea of getting married because I don’t see the relevance of it — unless of course I’m convinced that it needs to happen.
I think at the end of the day it’s about finding that person who makes you feel all the things that make life easier to take — in the midst of the mandatory struggles.
I certainly would want to have someone who cares for me and vice versa — for the length of my days. My parents have that and when you witness it in action — it’s inspiring.
Also for women who want children — it obviously gets more complicated since time is a huge factor. Men can have biological kids at 70. Women cannot.
It’s a matter of preference and I’m sure when it comes down to it — no one can resist the joy of being loved.
