  • Marriage is not a "life goal" for me.
    While I do find the ownership aspects sexy and romantic, it's not something that I feel I *have* to do.
    I'd be perfectly happy just BEING with the man I love, we don't have to get married.
    Basically - If the man I loved and wanted to be with asked me, I'd probably say yes.
    If he never asked, I wouldn't care and I wouldn't be hurt.

    I've never wanted children and I still don't.
    That may change when/if I fall in love, I don't know... but I seriously doubt it.
    Some people simply aren't meant to be parents.

  • I never wanted marriage or kids. In fact, I remember when I was younger there is this superstition my mother always used to say, that if someone sweeps your feet, you supposedly wouldn't get married.
    So I would grab the broom and sweep the hell out of my feet haha. I never wanted marriage, and I don't have the patience for kids.
    I do want a life long commitment/relationship though. A soulmate. But I think marriage kinda "cheapens" it. Like "I love you so much that I want to get the government involved in case you decide to leave me." Idk, I feel that if you love someone, they should have the choice to leave or stay. (I know with marriage you can through divorce, but it'd be expensive or a hassle and would delay or affect their decision even more).
    If they decide to stay, then great. If not, well that would suck lol
    Just my opinions, don't mean to knock anyone who wants marriage or kids :)

    • Marriage isn't always just about the legal side of it. For Catholics it is one of the big sacraments of the Church.

  • Call me old fashioned, but yeah I definitely wanna get married (I'm super nerdish, already have all kinds of wedding ideas, and a pinterest that is totally devoted to wedding stuff I love lol) and I soooo wanna have kids :) (once again, I'm a dork with all kinds of name ideas)

  • I've never liked kids, I've never wanted them and thankfully my boyfriend feels the same way. However, I've always seen myself as married, marriage is something he doesn't want but I have a feeling he'll change his mind one day :3 If not, it's not the end of the world.

  • I'm getting married in a few months and yes I want kids. Just one, or maybe two, but not for a couple of years.

  • I like kids, but I'm simply not cut out for this shit. I've never been a responsible person. As for marriage, well, I'm not malicious or especially dishonest, so I wouldn't cheat, but I wouldn't last in a single relationship long enough to justify marriage, either. I've never been in a relationship, but I know that in other areas of my life I cannot but see possibilities. I can't even pick a favourite yoghurt flavour, how am I supposed to choose one person to stay with my whole life?

    ... ok, MAYBE I'd consider marriage, but only if the guy does all the chores around the house for me. These are hard to come by.

  • Whenever I say I don't want kids, people always laugh and basically pat my head then say, "you'll change your mind."

    No, I won't.

    I was NEVER around children when I was younger, (small babies and toddlers because I was the youngest) so I'm not comfortable around them. They are loud poop machines that in my eyes cost way too much, and are just gross. (No offense)

    But I do want to be married maybe.

  • I'm not completely opposed to getting married, but I'm not dreaming of my wedding day or anything. I don't need a piece of paper to validate my relationship. If it's meant to last forever, then in will. A certificate won't make me love him any more.

    And no, I'm 100% not open to having children and never have been even when I was a child. Children freak me out and they're annoying as puck. I prefer animals <333

  • I don't want to have kids, but am open to marriage.
    Picked D, because obviously I'm not going to say that I want to get married before I meet someone I want to marry.

  • Option B. Though I don't see marriage as a must, it would be great and if the relationship proceeds to that cool. However, I don't want kids ever that's for sure.

  • Falling in love with someone completely and totally is very much something that I want, and for me that would mean that I would want to give myself to her completely, and her do the same for me. So yeah, I would like to be married someday.

    Kids... I really don't know with absolute certainty. I think I have a lot of love in my heart to give and that wouldn't be a problem. I just really need to fall in love with somebody hardcore before I could think about that, because I take the idea of starting a family VERY seriously.

    grant my beloved that wish if she so desired.

    right at this moment in time. ^.^

  • Absolutely yes. But finding her is proving to be one hell of a problem. Dating is insane and nobody seems to know what they want out of it these days. At least around here that is.

  • Picked option D. I don't want Marriage because there's divorce, which is expensive. Neither do I want competition with anyone else. Especially in a society and media-influencing enviroment like America.

  • Please do not touch your underpart with your hands. Why you should masturbate? Being a virgin who asked or informed you on this topic. Leave masturbation. Unless you leave this bad habit you will loose your happy sexual intercourse in future. Mentally you will be affected later on. You will feel sorry for what you are doing. Wait for some more years until you become 18 years make friendship with a boyfriend and have fun with him. This is the solution for your problem ok?

  • Depends on what your career is or your aspirations. I wouldn't have time for kids or a wife. I could get married and do all that, but it wouldn't be fair. I'm an infantryman so I must always place my mission first. I can't call up the government and tell them I'm not going because I have a family. Part of me would like a family, but that's not fair to put them through my bs. In the end, it depends on your job, your relationship, and personal goals.

  • I believe marriage is a bad deal for men today and don't plan to get married so I don't plan to have kids either. Maybe I'll adopt some.
