I feel that marriage is overrated in many ways for both sexes. Your thoughts?
Most Helpful Girl
Life is complicated. People change, they make mistakes, they evolve. If at the time you feel it's right and you genuinely intend to adhere to your vows, you're doing as much as anyone can realistically expect of you. I hope to get married, and I hope that my first marriage will be my only one. But if it's not, that's life. I'd rather be happy and make the most of the time I have here than force myself to keep promises that I no longer want to keep.
People should absolutely think twice before entering a marriage. It's a big deal, and it needs to be handled responsibly. But some people really want the feeling of committing to their partner in an "official" way. They want that special moment and the feeling that they've done something big to commemorate their commitment. There's always the chance that any marriage will fail, but there's also the chance that it won't. And if it doesn't work out, it doesn't always mean you are stupid and irresponsible. It can also mean that what was right for you in the past just isn't right for you anymore. I don't think think people are necessarily at fault when that happens, and I don't think they should be denied something that feels good to them at one point in their life just because things might change.1
