I always hear girls talking about "someday when they get married," and I never seem to think that way.
I for fun visualize a dress, but its always changing.
I look ahead in my life and can't visualize me married or with kids really, even though I wouldn't mind having both later on in life.
However, its not something I can easily visualize, nor am I yearning for it.
If I yearn for a wedding, it can only be for the beautiful dress, jewelry and all the food/party, literally. Just a big party.
In addition, I look ahead and think "when I buy a car, when I buy a house, I i I i" and I never once think 'well one day when my future husband and I buy a house..." I just never go there in my mind.
Does this mean I am not the marriage type? Is this common?

To me, it just means that you aren't completely stuck on the pre-1960s paradigm where women's status came almost completely from her husband. In the modern era, women don't HAVE to wait for a man to get what she wants in life, nor does she have to give up her dreams for her man. IMO, it's a healthy attitude.
That doesn't mean you won't get married, or won't WANT to get married, at some point down the road when you're closer to being ready for it. You're just smart not to obsess about something that you aren't ready for right now. There will be plenty of time to make plans when the time comes.2
