Should I Get Married?

Marriage is not for everyone. Proven by the rate of people getting married going down from the early 90’s. There are different reasons why people don’t want to get married but  men tend to be the ones who refrain from the idea of marriage. People joke around like men don’t want to get married because they don’t want to lose their hair and money. But these are not the real reasons men fear marriage.  Now of course if you are a man there is no need to worry if you don’t get married. Then again this only applies to some men as there are the legit ones that do want to get married which is also alright. But to play devils advocate, here are some real benefits of not getting married for both men and women.

1. Little financial worries

When you don’t get married that means the only financial worries you have are you and maybe your family. When you’re not married you don’t have to worry about sharing your earnings with your spouse. You also don’t have a child then that means no expenses for school, medical bills and whatever they would want. Financially it’s a sound decision to make.

2. You have your own time

If you’re well over your 20’s and living on your own then you have all the time in the world for yourself. You don’t have to worry about going home at a particular time, you can spend the night away and spend your time as you please. Which brings us to the next point, your freedom.

3. Freedom

Being single has one thing going for anyone, and that is freedom. There is no one calling you to go where you need to be. You don’t have to worry what your plans are as long as you are fulfilling them on your own. Plus there is no one telling you what to do. Married men and women tend to be neutered most of the time. They don’t get to drink, gamble, smoke and even hang out with friends.

4. Sexual relations are still on the table

Just because you’re not getting married doesn’t mean that you can’t get laid. The perks of not being married when it comes to sexual relations is that you don’t need to be committed to the other person.

5. You’ll still be happy

It is probably because those that choose to get married find some pleasure and enjoyment with the idea of having a lifelong partner. Those that don’t want to get married would still find a happiness within themselves. Getting married is not a prerequisite to living any particular way so weather you choose to be married or not to be married, do what feels right and always be true to yourself first.

So what do you think? What are the pros and cons of getting married?
