Why are you all so scared of getting married? Why do you feel like we are rushing you?
Ive been dating my boyfriend for two years and the topic comes up all the time and every time he asks me why it has to happen now and can't wait.
I guess it just confuses me that it freaks you guys out if you love the girl your with.

Because often it's the men that has a lot to lose if things don't work out... You can have everything you want in a relationship that you can have in marriage, except for the contract pretty much giving you half or more if things don't work out. You can love, live together, have kids, travel, be together in all the same ways in a relationship. It's not just the guys that get freaked out if someone wants to be together. Many women out there break up with guys that get too "clingy" or that wants to rush things. There are no promises in marriage. People let themselfs go physically, the treating of each other becomes different, and many things don't go as "planned". Women dream of being married when they are 5 years old and they have it all planned out. When it doesn't go as planned they throw a fit, look for sympathy, and blame men for all the problems. Some people want to get married just because their parents and grandparents did it, or it seems like the "right thing to do". Marriage doesn't equal happiness all the time. Just enjoy the relationship that you have. If you are happy with the person that you are with, then that's all you need...2
