I was never the little girl who imagined her wedding. I still can’t, not without anxiety. I once had a dream I was getting married, but I was running so late, I missed my own wedding. And that’s the closest I’ve ever come to my “dream wedding”.
I am thirty-one-years old. I’ve been in a committed relationship for seven years.
I started this blog to write about marriage. I want to know everything: what attracts us to each other, why we choose the mates we choose, how to survive each other during, and if possible, how to come out happy in the end.
Today, more people than ever are choosing not to get married. According to 2010 census figures, only 30% of people between 18 and 34 years are married. This is the first time in our culture where couples are choosing to stay together as life partners in a committed relationship and not tying the knot.
And so the question remains, to be or not to be married?
