Marriage is kind of a big deal.

Some people say that younger generations don’t take it as seriously, but I beg to differ.

Yes, people are getting married later and later in life on average, and co-habitating couples often see no need to tie the knot for years at a time, but I’d argue that that means that when people DO finally decide to get married, it means they’ve thought about it a lot, tested the waters thoroughly, and are really really ready to take it on with diligence.

That said, nobody is immune from mistakes, or from second-guessing, as these real anonymous confessions confirm.

20. “He texts me every once in a while.”

What do you do when you just can’t get them off your mind?

That buyer’s remorse sets in pretty quickly.

But who was that?

9. “Regardless, I love him.”

It might be easier to just think of the love, and not the what-ifs.

8. “What doesn’t help…”

Sometimes people just take each other for granted.

7. “I have a lover.”

Sounds like you know what your decision is then, eh?

6. “I don’t hate her.”

I like the lol at the end, that really lightens things up.

5. “Sitting and thinking…”

A truly dangerous combination of activities.

4. “Maybe I messed up…”

“More involved, more in love.”

3. “I’m so depressed.”

Well, of course you are.

2. “I’m sorry.”

Do we want the right person or the right now person?

1. “When she said…”

Anyone who doesn’t trust dogs doesn’t deserve to be trusted.
