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?
19. “I haven’t even been married 6 months.”
That buyer’s remorse sets in pretty quickly.
18. “Now if I want out…”
Depending on what community you’re in, that stigma can be excruciating.
17. “I still believe.”
I’m not so sure myself.
16. “A real shot.”
You gotta shoot your shot, but with who?
15. “So boring now.”
The spark is gone so soon?
14. “2 years later…”
The high school sweetheart marriage is so often fraught.
13. “It is just pain.”
And at that point, you take your leave.
12. “Always wanted to be a mommy.”
11. “Absolutely no interest.”
How did you two end up together in the first place then?
10. “The right one.”
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.
Godspeed, troubled marriages. It sure ain’t easy.
