Anyone else have the same sentiments or am I just paranoid from seeing shit like this?
Well to be honest, it sounds like the latter if these kind of cases are primarily the reason you don't want to get married. Obviously, this doesn't normally happen in marriages.
Anyway, me and my girlfriend don't want to get married either. We're not religious, I don't really see any benefits of marriage and it's nothing more than just a ceremonial thing to me. I know there are a few legal benefits, but as far as I know you can arrange those through other means as well.
As for having children, I don't want those either. I don't like children all that much, I don't like the idea of being a father and I always had this impression that once I become a father then that's what I have to do for basically the rest of my life. It seems to me like I can do so much more with my life when I don't have kids.
I don't know how I'll think about marriage and kids in ten years from now though. I'm still a student, so I guess it's only natural that I don't want to get settled and everything yet.
