Why does everyone rush into marriage now days? I've been with my girlfriend for almost 3 years now but ever since about our first year she's been asking when she's getting that ring.it's getting worse now because all of her close friends who have been dating say maybe a year are getting engaged. My question is why in the world can't people just wait, why not enjoy what you have without adding the stress of marriage. In my position especially it just doesn't make sense to me, I'm 21 years old and still in college. Someone PLEASE tell me why everyone is so obsessed with getting married like its not the next 60 - 80 years of your life. I am extremely frustrated! and I don't know what to do, I don't feel ready to get married yet I feel extraordinary amounts of pressure to do so! FML

date someone else. you guys want different things. you shouldve broke up the first year because obviously she wasn't going to stop wanting to get married and it isn't right of you to try to change hr view.
these people are not wrong. they look forward to getting marred and beginning the next 60 to 80 years of their lives together.
you are not wrong for not wanting to rush into it or not wanting to do it at all.
its wrong for a person who wants marriage and for one who does not to be together, unless either ofu is genuinely OK with forgoing your own desires for the relationship. you're not. she's not. breakup.
i am smilar to your thinking, so id never be with someone who actually TOLD me in no uncertain terms they absolutely want to marry and soon.
thinking its crazy isn't going to stop people from wanting to mary and you're not going to bend them to your will no matter how frustrated you are
get out and find someone who isn't in a wish or doesn't want it at all. OR stay but stop complaining. you may be frustrated but logically you have no right to complain that someone wants to marry you because you are not obligated to marry anyone. with anyone.
