- yes, i'd like to be married.
- yes, i want to be a mom.
- no, i've never been married.
- nothing happened--i just haven't met someone that i can see spending the rest of my life with.
maybe that's the problem. maybe i'm a commitment-phobe. although, i don't think i am. i don't move a lot. i have several friends whose friendships have lasted for years. i think the correct diagnosis is that i'm phobic of a disposable society. everything is disposable--containers, income, and sadly relationships. i know it's an almost archaic idea, but i believe in love for a lifetime...you work thru the hard places & stick it out. divorce just isn't an option for me. i'm probably pretty cautious in my choices, but shouldn't that be celebrated not chastised?
we celebrate marriages...and many will end in divorce. why not celebrate singleness?
