Okay. Scratch that! I’m not saying I am full-on ready but guys, the marriage bug has bitten me. I don’t know if it is because I am getting older but I am starting to feel the whole marriage idea.
I am telling you ever since I turned 21, I have been thinking of my future a lot more. For those that know me, I have always been the relationship girl. Not to say that I jump from relationship to relationship (I have only seriously dated one guy) but I have always been pro-love. I honestly believe that it is always better to navigate life with a companion. Now, I’m not saying that it should be just any companion but someone that genuinely loves you and cares for you.
Now, as a feminist, I do believe that women should be able to take care of themselves i.e go to school, get a job, have a career. I really honestly believe that it is important to not be dependent on a man because I have seen situations where the man will flip it on you and in that kind of situation, what do you do?
So, I do believe that in a marriage – while I still view the man as the head of the home – I believe that it is a partnership where these two people grow together and compromise.
So, I’m not necessarily looking to get married tomorrow because I still have to figure out my own life before I bring anyone else into it. However, if I am to start dating anyone, it is with the view that we are heading somewhere.
I still believe strongly in the institution of marriage and I only want to do it once in my lifetime. I do not plan to get into it lightly because I have seen marriages go south and I don’t want that to be the case for me. So, God-willing, I plan to take my time and be 99% sure…I always say that the remaining 1% is a leap of faith. Lol.
However guys, the bug is hitting me quite strongly and I am a little afraid of my impulses but it is something that I am aware of so I am trying my best to keep it under control.
So, tell me, is there anyone that is feeling the way I am at this age? Does anyone think I’m too young to start thinking about this? Pls let me know all your thoughts in the comments below
