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.
10. “He texts me every once in a while.”
What do you do when you just can’t get them off your mind?
9. “I haven’t even been married 6 months.”
That buyer’s remorse sets in pretty quickly.
8. “Now if I want out…”
Depending on what community you’re in, that stigma can be excruciating.
7. “I still believe.”
I’m not so sure myself.
6. “A real shot.”
You gotta shoot your shot, but with who?
5. “So boring now.”
The spark is gone so soon?
4. “2 years later…”
The high school sweetheart marriage is so often fraught.
3. “It is just pain.”
And at that point, you take your leave.
2. “Always wanted to be a mommy.”
1. “Absolutely no interest.”
How did you two end up together in the first place then?
Godspeed, troubled marriages. It sure ain’t easy.
