You don't wanna marry? Fine.
Go out there, make money, build a career, be famous, acquire landed property of all sizes....
But let me break this down. I knew a female friend back in the university whose thoughts ran along the lines of "let me just finish school, serve and start a family". We can't all be big dreamers; some are wired to be caregivers and nurturers, mothers and lovers. We can't all create brands or land on the moon...
I know that it's beautiful helping people discover themselves and forge out some purpose for their lives, but Purpose varies with the individual. For some, Marriage is a big deal, they want to sit on that front porch (or verandah), with their kids on their laps, and if you are going to berate them or drag them all over this place for it, you are just as bad as the system you are fighting to change, and you are part of the problem.
Live and let marry. We aspire differently. The End.
Thank YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS WRITE UP! I'VE NEVER REALLY LOOKED AT IT SO MUCH THIS WAY INDEPTLY. eVERY WORD YOU SAID HERE IS TRUE. WHAT IS EVEN BEST IS THE WAY YOU CONCLUDED IT.... LIVE, AND LET'S MARRY! THANKS FOR THIS PIECE...i HOPE
