Reasons You Shouldn't Rush into Marriage
It's unfortunate that these days, many people seem to look at a marriage with the belief that it comes with an easy way out. I'm not anti-divorce or anything, but I do believe that they shouldn't be the quick answer when things get rough. A divorce should be a last resort.
Sadly, people seem to rush into marriages so they can have a big party, only to find that married life might not really have been what they wanted after all.
I've never had that "must get married right now" urge. I've been in long term relationships before, and I thought that maybe one day I would get married but it was never a race for me. A girl I knew at college was determined that she would get married, and was actually engaged to two different men with a pretty short gap in between. She was someone's wife by the age of 20, and thankfully, it worked for her.
It's not getting married young that irks me though. It's the rush. And the belief that marriage vows are something which can just be taken back when you get bored of them. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but if and when I get married, it will be to someone I have taken the time to get to know, and with the belief that it will last forever. Things may not work out how I hoped, but at least I will know that I went into my marriage with the right attitude.
