Most Helpful Girl

  • Loss of independence. I fear marrying a man, starting a family and then my life is all about the kids, him and the house instead of being able to do what I wanna do. Also the fear of him remaining faithful is probably the biggest reason. I don't want to waste my life with someone only to find out they were untrue and couldn't be trusted.

  • The routine is terrifying to me. I can't explain why, maybe I like to think that I always have the opportunity to spring off to India or something at the drop of a hat - just the idea of having constraints is scary. I'm afraid I'm not a marriage-oriented individual. I fall in love, I care deeply about my significant other, but I can't stay committed to one-house-one-life for a lifetime. I need to live.

  • I really just don't see any benefit in getting married. Or at least the cons greatly outweigh the pros. In my opinion. I guess I can see why it appeals to other people... I just don't see the point for myself.

  • no . I'm not doing it. I'm not interested in having my body on call for someone elses consumption. marriage leads to emotional blackmail. 'you married me so..'

  • Actually when I got married, I wasn't scared at all. I loved him, that's all I needed. We wanted to be together so badly.

    Well in the end things didn't work out. but I still thing, if you really love someone, you won't be scared.

  • That in the end it doesn't matter. Love is interchangeable and easily lost. There is no point to a union if all you have to 'bank' on is love. Love doesn't really exist. Hows that for different?

What Guys Said 3

  • You forgot to ask 'partner decides they aren't interested in sex any more' which is more frequently a major problem then the above.

    You also didn't mention money problems.

    Most marriages end over money or sex.
