The social pressure to get married is putting too much stress on relationships. Couples are trying too hard to fulfill this romantic gesture then they are putting into having a meaningful bond with someone. We are too caught up with getting to home base that we are not appreciating the journey. We are losing sight of reality with this pressure to wear a fluffy dress, have a diamond adorn the finger, have a million pictures honoring your special love. True love is amazing, but so is your connection to another person. True love is amazing but we need to be reminded that is very special and extremely hard to find. You cannot have it both ways. You cannot have a super special type of love that everyone shares. Yes you can hope for this, but is should not be deemed as inevitable, as something that will definitely happen to you. I am not saying that we should not have marriage, I think that people should maker it less of a life goal. Oh, poor soul, she never married, they say. Fuck that, lucky that she never settled. I will search for true love until my last breath, I will love many people along the way, I will enjoy the lovers that happen into my bed and into my heart. I will embrace that which I learn from my partners, I will be happy with sharing their point of view, with experiencing the feelings of companionship. Do I need a diamond to make a million dollar smile on my face? To feel fulfilled with my life? To validate myself as a successful member of society?
