In the 1950’s, or later decades, it made sense to get a job, get married, have kids, and watch your children repeat the same process.  As time went on, that changed.  You see people living together as partners, and finding out if they get along first.  Also, with the divorce rate so high, it makes you wonder, should I really get married?

Sure it sucks when you go to a family event, or a friend’s party, and everyone is married, but you aren’t. 
But are you happy?  Most likely you are, and the married couples aren’t (not all of them of course).  So it makes you wonder, if you settle down with the next person who says they love you, will you be happy?  That’s a great question, and the answer is something you will have to find out on your own. 

I myself am 36 years old, and have never been married.  If I ever do get married, it will surely be the result of getting hit in the head by a bag of sparks (or butterflies), that I have yet to witness.  I am so used to being single, and enjoying my solitary happiness, that I’m not completely sure getting married will make me any happier.  I’d love to know how other people feel about this.  Do you want to get married because you don’t want to be alone?  Because you want to have children?  Because you are simply tired of being single?

Leave me a comment to tell me what you think!
