Why is it that when you’re single….all your married friends are pushin’ for you to get married?
Is it true that they simply just want you to join in on the misery? Misery loves company, or what?
I have a friend…and I’ll use that term loosely, thankyouverymuch, who asks about the marriage thing damn near every single time I see her. It’s gotten to the point where I start the count down from 10. Inevitably, by the time I get to 6 – she’s asking about the ring status.
“What, no ring?”
“Hasn’t he proposed, yet??”
“When’s the big day?”
I’m not married. Is it a crime?
I was married once. Long, long ago…in a far off, distant land.
Bad experience, notwithstanding – I’m not opposed to ever marrying again – – but for me to marry again, well…..let’s just say that’s it’s been quite a few years – – so, from my perspective, there’s no justification for rushing it and there’s nothing at all wrong with quite a few years more before it happens ever again.
I have another friend who tells me that she wouldn’t be putting up with it at this point. Chris and I have been together for a little over three years, now – – and she says that she wouldn’t be putting up with it.
Putting up with what?
I’m in a happy, healthy, solid n’ sexy relationship with a man I adore – – what, exactly, am I putting up with?
She says that she’d be pushing him for that ring by now. Either that, or she woulda proposed herself.
What’s up with that? What is up with women who push and push and pressure their guy toward marriage? I figure, if he hasn’t asked….then there’s a damn good reason for it – – and besides, why push a man to a place that he didn’t willingly go in the first place?? If he wants to, he will. If he doesn’t, he won’t. If he does – – I’ll give him the answer that’s in my heart.
I mean – him asking doesn’t necessarily equate to my accepting.
What’s it with these people? It’s like being single is a social plague, or something.
