Lately I have been challenged by the question, “why get married?” You may ask why would that question be a challenge? Is it every woman’s dream to be married? Is it not true, that every woman can share a story of being girls daydreaming about their wedding day? First, I would have to say, I am not sure that every woman dreamed about getting married. Second, I have to say that those women that daydreamed about their wedding day most likely did not daydream about the marriage. When I was younger, I never dreamed about my wedding day. As a young adult my hormones took over and sex became one main reason to get married. But even then I understood that marriage needed more then a physical attraction to last. Recently when I think about getting married, it is not about what I was taught as young girl, or what I desired as young lady. My thoughts today, are on the true meaning of marriage and why people want to do it. Why all around the world marriage is the ultimate honorable way to show ones love for another? What makes it so special even in today’s society where it seems we can do everything married couples do, by using different contracts, living with each other, etc.?
So that brings me back to the million dollar question. Why get married? Join me in my journey to finding out my answer. Let’s start the conversation with your thoughts on marriage. Why did you do it? Or why do you want to do it? If you are not considering doing it at all, I want to know that too.
