Is Marriage Worth Your Sanity and Happiness?


The divorce rate today is alarming and one contributing factor is the belief that people change when they get married. Simple, they don’t! Marriage is just an institution where you celebrate your deepest love and commitment to your partner in the midst of friends and curious onlookers, with varied opinions on the expected expiry date of your union. I want to share with you a number of reasons why marriage should be the last thing on your mind. Basically, it’s all about having a list of genuine reasons why you should not get married now.

1. The stress is not worth it

How does it feel to have a girlfriend long-term? We all know how stressful dating can be. Now when you decide to get married, you may have to tolerate this stress for the rest of your life. Are you ready to commit your life to depression? That’s absolutely ridiculous, don’t you think?

2. Marriage is expensive

Marriage is very expensive as is divorce. You have to share all expenses with your better half and that means you have to ask for consent before you spend your money. Who wants that? Instead of anticipating a dreadful divorce a few years down the road, why not spend your hard earned cash on a holiday at your favorite destination point. Not only will you have fun but also appreciate the many perks of staying single.

3. You will not amass wealth

Some people end up married for monetary gains. More women today are looking for monetary security. Although there is nothing evil in finding someone who can take care of you, it should never be the basis of gauging your potential mate. Some women often forget the true meaning of love and fail to honor the institution of marriage by marrying for money. You should remember that money is the root cause of all evil. Financial wealth will never substitute love and true companionship. With that said, you should never consider marrying someone because of wealth.

4. Marriage may not guarantee security

Most women have the misconception or idealized fantasy they will have peace of mind and a sense of financial security in marriage, but few actually achieve this. In most cases, this often affects younger women who are in the process of trying to figure out their true self. They may hope and believe that older men will provide security and hence can take care of their every need. This never seems to work and most women end up hurt and resentful. As a woman, you should first get your own sense of security through financial and emotional independence.
