A post secret that spoke to me


I read this post card at Post Secret and it made me wonder if I am lying to myself when I spout my thoughts about David and I not being married. I wonder, do I really NOT care? If I don't care, then why do I always feel like I have to justify our lifestyle to others? Is it that I am upset about not being married or is that I am upset that people want to put so much weight on being married? It just made me wonder.

WOW! That postcard really struck me. You know, a lot of people really do put lots of emphasis on being married. If a couple is happy with the way their relationship and lifestyle is, then who says they have to commit to a lifestyle that is held by what many people think should be the norm? I have a friend who has been with her partner for over a decade and they just now decided to get married to please their parents. They had no issues about not being married.

This was a very thought provoking post, Rachie :)
