    No disrespects to your parents, but once you have grown to a certain age, they should have no control over your life in any way. Sure you should do your best to honor their name and keep them happy but that doesn't mean you have to follow them like a trained pet.

      when I parted with a girlfriend that I'd been with for 7 years about 20 years ago, I said ‘that's it, enough'. I was telling a friend of mine about it and he said “When love hits you it hits you, and there's nothing you can do about it”….it hit me, I've been married 15 years.

    It seems that you have a very self-indulgent world view. There's a lot of “I want” and “I don't want” in your assessment of marriage and beyond (when life is no longer a good time, maybe suicide?). If freedom and getting what you want are your primary life goals, then you are probably quite right that marriage is not for you.

      i think freedom can come through marriage because if you want to learn the art of not controlling or not being controlled, the marriage or close partnership relationship is the best place for it. Wandering around the world unattached is not freedom, it could easily be a way of avoiding things that need to be faced.

      different culuture respond differently to things like this. You could say “because this is a very serious life decision, I need to take my time with it”. Now, what will happen is as they get older , their aches and pains will take up so much mental energy, it won't be a major priority”. Hopefully you've got a brother or sister that will do lots of crazy things, and this will keep the attention on them instead of on you.

    I was married for 22 years and I did ALL the things you did and more. I had my OWN MIND, I didn't have to share anything. I had my own bank account, I had my own cars, We shared a house, We shared our children, …but most importantly We shared our love.

    I didn't just have a husband, I had a best friend…and to me that is the most special thing in the world. Having a partnership. Marriage is a ceremony.

    So I respect your decision. No one wants to change it, but understand you didn't create yourself. It took the love of two people. Whether they stayed together or not important, but they gave birth to a wonderful, free thinking son….YOU!!

    I think it is very possible to be happy without being married, but I'm not sure you understand the depth and complexity of a married relationship yet. Each person gives and takes throughout all the years of the marriage. You give, you get.

    Marriage isn't free, but it isn't costly either.

    One thing I notice very often in the medical reports that I transcribe is when the doctors say this, and they say it with almost every report: “His wife is here and will be watching him closely.” Or, “Her husband is here and will be watching her closely.” If you never marry, I hope you try to make sure there is someone there in your life, someone who is “always there,” who can take care of you, not just in sickness, but in all things that are important. If you never marry, you likely won't have children to depend on either. Blood is thicker than water, and family is often all you have in life.

    But, again, some personalities do well alone, too.

    I understand that you needn't be married to someone to live a happy life. More and more people decide to be in relationships (I mean stable ones)without wearing wedding rings. What really counts for them is just love. I'm not sure whether you are against marriages or any relationships. If you are against both options it can mean that you simply can't love anyone. It would sound sad…

      I don't know whether changing your mind would be a good thing or not; it interests me that you have such strong feelings on what seems to me a very abstract issue. Perhaps that is a cultural difference, or just a difference in personality, but marriage seems to me something that can't be understood or contemplated in any meaningful way in the abstract. Thus, this all seems very theoretical and detached from real life to me.

    my philosophy is never to say never You never know what life will bring. I do think that we should all enjoy our singlehood to figure out who we are are and develop our personal identity.. I think you should use that time to be selfish… do what you want.. travel, go places, and expand your horizon.. and hopefully one day you will meet someone to share your life with.. not necessary get married but I do think that in order to grow you need to learn how to love… it doesn't have to be just one person.. it can be group of friends… a community.. or even God..

    Marriage is not for everyone… but I think that it could definitely have its rewards. I am finding out that being with someone is more difficult than being single but it's very rewarding too.. I never thought I would marry either but I am finding out that freedom and commitment can coexist. Good luck in your adventures and if you do decide to get married one day.. great! if not… that's great too.. It's your life.. live it the way you want.

    I believe you understand your parents better. My parents have higher hopes for their son. They want the male descendants to continue carrying on the family name.

    If you are not ready yet, why do you want to tell them “no” instead? If I were you, I would tell them that I take marriage very seriously. I would not simply marry for the sake of marrying. If I marry, I want happiness. If I'm doubtful whether someone is compatible with me, I would not jump into marrying that person and suffer. When I suffer, I'm sure my parents would also suffer indirectly along with me.

    I didn't want to be married until I met my husband. We were casual friends with a platonic relationship for 3 years before we decided to marry. We had a premarital couselling of 12 sessions which we discussed in detail what we want our marriage to be like. In my marriage, he and I are both givers by nature so there is alot of love and harmony. We are naturally happy being ourselves. We communicate alot openly with each other. We do not agree on everything and sometimes we just agree to disagree. We have to be realistic that no one can agree with us 100% all the time and it's no point to pretend. We love children. Unfortunately we aren't able to have any.

    Some people think that without children, a marriage is meaningless.

    See more of the world and do what you need to do now. Seek to settle down when you feel you are ready. When you are not ready, it's simply not the time yet. When you have met someone very compatible, you'll be glad that you waited fot the right person to come along. But when the right person comes along sooner than you expected, don't miss the boat too. Be friends and understand each other first.

    I might as well share this with you. I know of a couple who have been married for about 10 years and then separated. The wife wanted a kid. The husband said she wanted to work, go to college and is so bad at time management up to the extent that they didn't have time for each other, how could they ever have time for a kid. He suggested seeking a marriage counsellor. She insisted on having a kid if not, it's a goodbye.

    Well, I'm just sharing my experience, observations and opinions. You can disagree with me. I hope you will have a clearer mind and wisdom in dealing with your parents on the subject.

    Hiya! I am replying to this comment of yours. I think this is a huge comment you made. You are not sure if your parents will permit you to be single? what is your age? I think the issue you have to face is not accepting what your parents “want” you to do and making wise choices for yourself. This is your life – not theirs.

    No wonder you post an entry stating I am NOT going to marry. There are plenty of nice people around here who I am sure will give you encouragement to learn courage and exercise faith and be respectful to yourself and be honest with you mum and dad. So you can move ahead and learn courage first.

    With respect … myself
