There are plenty of reasons why someone might never want to get married – and trust me, I’ve heard them all. But for me, it boils down to two simple things: I don’t believe in the institution of marriage, and I don’t want to be legally bound to another person.
Let’s start with the first reason: I don’t believe in the institution of marriage. To me, marriage is an outdated, sexist, and patriarchal institution that has no place in my life. I believe that marriage is a tool of oppression, used to control women and keep them in their place. I don’t want any part of that.
The second reason I’m never getting married is because I don’t want to be legally bound to another person. I value my independence too much to ever want to be tied down to another person in that way. I don’t want to have to answer to anyone but myself.
So, those are my two main reasons for why I’m never getting married. I know that some people will never understand my decision, but that’s okay. I’m happy and content with my life the way it is, and I don’t need a piece of paper to validate my relationships.
