...and it moves on some more. Now the topic shifts to the ever touchy subject of Marriage. Even guys don't mind talking about this "used-to-be-hated subject matter" nowadays. Well at the right time. Don't bring it up while he's watching the game if you don't want your feelings to be hurt. What? It's true.
Now let’s say you’ve finally found that perfect guy. He’s tall, clean cut, muscular and his wallet weighs more than he does. Flawless. Don’t do something stupid like immediately bring up the topic of marriage. Marriage is a touchy subject nowadays. It really isn’t how it used to be and how it was meant to be in this day and age. Marriage is more closely related to being a trending style that comes and goes depending on the season. Some people get married because it’s the “in” thing to do. Then, guess what, they get divorced because it then becomes the next “in” thing to do. It wasn’t meant to be treated like that. Marriage, hate it or love it, is an idea that is only intended for those who have truly indeed found the “one”. Not just the one that looks great in boxers or drives a Mercedes or the one that bought you those earrings that can reflect the heat of the sun. But the one that will take care of you when you’re sick. I mean really sick. Not a small sniffle sick but you have colorful, very unappealing liquids leaking from different parts of you sick. That’s real love.
Make sure that you really want to spend the rest of eternity with this guy. Because he’s asking himself and everyone else he knows the exact same question. That’s why he fainted when he got down on one knee. The true value and reality of marriage finally sank in. That’s much better than it sinking in after you’re already married. It’s tough enough just considering waking up to the same person every single day until one of you dies without you pushing it on him. Fact, yes there’s that word again; women initiate 70-75% of all divorces. Pretty funny when you consider how much they push for marriage. Make sure he is who you want to be with! Furthermore don’t call off the wedding or threaten to file for a divorce over something extremely stupid. It’s still pretty dumb, but it’s better to break up over something stupid then get a divorce over something stupid or someone stupid.
Like I said before, marriage is not a dress or purse that you can return to the church you got it from just because you were smart enough to keep the receipt. It takes work, dedication, an ass-load of compromise and oh yeah more and more work. But just because it’s work shouldn’t mean it becomes a job. You can quit a job, even call your boss a pathetic pervert before you storm out. But you can’t quit your marriage. Hopefully you don’t call your husband a pervert either. It’s ok if he checks out your ass. Trust me, you want him to.
