why do I feel weird? This weird feeling is also weird. Damnit!

all of a sudden I feel weird for not being married. Which is ridiculous! I shouldn't feel weird for that! I'm 21! I'm still young and hip! :D

I was looking through some pics on facebook and it seemed like every second set was someone my age having a hens night or wedding. GAH! I'm happy the way I am. I want a boyfriend and one day a husband, but I'm pretty ok with not having one now. I'm not pining! So why do I feel weird about this!? It's crazy.

I'm going to go shoot myself in the head now. GAH!

Heh, that's what I thought when facebook became popular. SO many people from HS were married! Insanity!

That being said I personally see Marriage as being rather pointless.

Who want's to be a quitter? :P

then I'm glad I'm not the only one to have felt this way. :)

why is getting married being a quitter?

It's because they've all lost their minds. Getting married so young is just crazy.

Don't feel weird about it. You're being sensible.

It gets worse as you get older :P

Seriously though, I've stopped stressing over it. Though now I'm on the other end of the spectrum, where weddings/wedding talk/etc is starting to irritate me. Because it's like all people can talk about. There's more to life than marriage! I don't want a husband! I'm not weird!

Peer pressure to be married isn't so much of an issue. :P

Co-habitation just isn't going to happen with me. I'm determined to not live with a man, even in a share house, unless I'm married to him. Done it before, didn't end well, not gonna do it again.

So right. It IS just a piece of paper, you don't need it to justify your relationship. So overrated. The sooner people get over the idea that normal people have to get married and raise loads of kids, the better off society will be.


What is the right attitude to have towards marriage then?

the problem is the difference between the concept and the act.

It is one thing to go on and on about the "importance of marriage".

It is entirely another to live in the intent which is applied to marriage.

Placing a greater import on a label than on living right is where so many people like you fail. Putting up artificial structures to protect an inability to function without them is kind of sad. (To clarify/example: being physically & mentally incapable of being unable to live in the same house as someone of the opposite sex without a label (a piece of paper, a certificate, a ceremony) to give some predesigned procedure on how to act and behave.).

I refer again to your earlier wonderment about how people without the bible are able to live "moral lives". They're apparently just smarter than you.
