I love me
You love me
Let”s make it permanent.
You can use marriage as a way to lock the other person into the relationship. Of course if it doesn’t work for you, you have the options of moving on.
Marriage isn’t a magic pill that makes everything work out and you live happily ever after.
Marriage is a moral and legal commitment to another person. In front of everyone that you care about, and everyone that the other person cares about you are stating that you are committing yourself for life to this other person. If you decide to end it, the state will get involved legally and financially. Everyone you care about will know that you made a promise that you didn’t keep.
I’m not saying that you need to stay with that person if they are beating you and abusing you.
I’m saying that marriage isn’t a quick fix to keep the other person. You can marry in haste, but regret it for a long long long time.
