    You don't have to be married to have babies though.
    (Original post by Rum Ham)
    Marriage doesn't automatically mean babies, especially in this day in age when more and more couples are choosing to remain childless.
    but y would i marry though?
    (Original post by offsetWHOOP)
    You sound like women are lining up to marry you.
    do i really? is that an assumption or some kind of implication from what i wrote?? not what i had in mind lol

    more like no-one wanting to marry me, besides even sit on me in the bus >.>

    I' m a woman and I think it is very unlikely that I will get married or be in any type of long term relationship it's just not in my character, but I do want to have children, maybe not my own, but definitely adopt, just maybe later in life, when everything is going as expected and it is a good time. Ever thought about adopting an older child?

    I have personally never understood the point of marriage. It is a social construct which falsifies unity. Love and unity is proven by the lack of a need for marriage. You are with that person for who they are, not for any material incentives they may provide. Marriage does not prove commitment, it forces it.

    Interesting take.

    I mean marriage doesn't always equal babies. And who says you have to get married and have kids anyway. Don't if you don't want to.

    not particularly. i'd rather focus on having a successful career and doing my own thing. that might be selfish but to be honest i don't really care. then again, i'm not completely against it if it ends up happening. i've just never been one of those people who imagines themselves with a husband and kids by the time they're 35, what can i say.

    i don't think there is any benefit to get married if your a guy...just seems like a big risk if anything since you might end up getting divorced and lose half your stuff. You don't need marriage to start a family or prove to someone that you love them. >_<

    yeah i guess so. i'm pretty laid back in general, but when it comes to things that i don't place much importance in, i honestly don't give it much thought. marriage was never something i cared about - i never imagined my wedding dress or who my bridesmaids would be like so many girls supposedly do. i did used to think i wanted a big family when i was little, but my priorities are so different now, and i don't really see it as 'fulfilling my role' as a female to have kids if that makes sense. i just do what i want to do and see where that takes me.
