Yes my friends. The Asian culture has befuddled our thinking. Life on earth is comparatively short, so our Asian oldsters spook you into believing that you don’t want to be alone spending the rest of your years. Society has drummed into our heads that we “must” get married. Whack! You can live alone, and not be lonely. You can have a partner, and not be married. I know many couples who marry for the sake of marrying, and now are scrambling to pepper the cracks in the relationship that imperils their sacrament. I ALMOST feel sorry for them.
As humans age, they get tensed up and frantically look for partners to spend their lives with, simply because they’re petrified to be alone. These are the same people who spend their whole lives dreaming of a happily ever after. Bollocks! Close-minded thinking won’t get us anywhere. We need to loosen up and don’t get so high-strung. And by loosening up I mean, is to appreciate LIFE, to stop and smell the roses, which most of us fail to do. We don’t even bother trying.
Bottom line is, do what is right for you and do not live in fear of what might happen in the future. These days, people seem to have blanked out on marrying the RIGHT person for the RIGHT reasons. It’s dispiriting.
I’m not against marriage, but I think it’s overly hyped. A few people have questioned my beliefs, as to what will happen if I actually do find THE one? Well, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Unlike many of us, I don’t go looking for THAT bridge. I’ll be gallivanting around, experiencing life to its fullest. Try it for a change, it’s liberating. 😛
