What’s the Rush? 

I was asked what are my thoughts on marriage and rushing into marriage after reading two articles sent to me. I will share the links to these two articles at the end of this post. Are you ready for my two cents? Of course you are, let’s do this!

Marriage. It’s beautiful. It’s great and it can be fulfilling. That is, if you are with the right person. Studies have shown that there are millions of people who have been married more than once due to a variety of different reasons including, but not limited to: infidelity, adultery, incompatibility, lack of love, unhappiness, abuse and financial strain. Adding to that, thousands of women and men file for divorce each and every day. How sad.

I for one want everyone to be happy with who they are and who they are with. We all deserve that much don’t we? That is why in my personal opinion, rushing into marriage is not a good idea. Many mistakenly marry out of lust instead of love and they don’t realize it until it’s too late. There is a difference between the two you know… 

I could have been married several times, but I knew that we weren’t meant to be together. No matter how much that person loves you (and these men loved and cared for me deeply), if you don’t love them the same way back, you are hurting them and setting you both up for marital failure. Not to mention, it’s unfair to the other person. After all they, just like you and I, deserve to be with someone who will love them and accept them just the same.

I personally wouldn’t want to be married more than once or divorced at anytime in my life, although I know it does and can happen. I just know that for me, I prefer to take my time when it comes to marriage because only then would I be able to find the right person who is meant to be with me and only me for a lifetime. Now with all that being said, why on earth would I rush to get married?

So there you have it. That is my two cents. You can find the articles I referenced here and here. Until next time…

  1. Anita, thanks for giving the readers another glimpse into your world. This is a well-written piece. As it relates to the “infidelity formula,” I’d say it is incomplete and in some ways excuses the behavior. I don’t think there is a single formula that best characterizes infidelity. Infidelity boils down to a single factor, and that is choice. -josiah
