Why Do I Want to Get Married?

Posted on: December 18, 2016

Everytime I see a friend who really wants to get married, I will ask them this one question, “Why do you want to get married?” And somehow, I was rarely satisfied with their answers.

“Because at the end, we all have to get married and I’m already in that age.”

“Because almost all of my friends are married.”

“Because I’m not happy being single.”

“Because I envy the married couple.”

Or… “Because my parents told me so.”

I don’t want to judge, it’s their life anyway, it’s just that I will never use the same reason for myself. The way I see it, there is no such a thing like a proper age to get married. Some people are mature enough to get married before 25, but some others are still too selfish for a marriage in their 30’s. I’m also not that kind of person who does something just because everyone does it or just because someone else tells me to do so. I’m happy with my life as it is and I don’t envy someone else’s life.

And then today, I had a long chat with an old friend and it made me ask myself, “Why do I want to get married?”

Okay, now it is my turn to answer my own question… Here are the reasons why I want to get married.

The first reason, I want to have someone who is devoted to share this life with me. I want to have someone who always have my back, someone to share my ups and downs, someone to make life decisions together with me, and someone to be my partner for life. I’ve had enough of people walk out of my life and I really want to have someone who I can rely on for the rest of my life.

The second reason, I want to take a very good care of someone other than myself. People says, it’s a basic female instinct. If you really know me, then it might not sound like me to you, but the truth is, I would really love to play my role as a wife looking after her husband. I want to make sure he lives well, eats right, and I also want him to be happier than he used to be. I simply want to help him to have a better life to live in.

And finally, I want to get married because I know that I will eventually get bored with my life as a single. I really know myself and I know than in the years to come, I will be fed up with similar single problems over and over again. Even right now, I’m already bored with all those random dates and heartbreaks that came with it. Seeing someone new nearly every year is no longer as exciting as it used to be. Settling down with that Mr. Right (I hope he does truly exist, hehehehe) would be all that I really want from now on.

Does that sound like a good reason to get married? I think it is, at least for myself. I really hope that the right person will come along! And of course I also hope, I’m already good enough to be a right person for someone out there. Amiin! 🙂

It’s very important to feel content about our own life. No matter how hard we try, the truth is, we will NEVER get EVERYTHING we want to have in life. I want to have more curves, I want to have a pair of cheekbones and a chin like a supermodel, I want to be married at 30 years old, I want to be a Math expert, I want so many things in life and some of them are just some mission impossible. It’s true that I’m a go getter, but I simply have no time nor resource to pursue everything I want in life. There are some things that I need to live with it probably for the rest of my life. But you know what? I never regret any of that. I would rather count my blessings rather than feeling sorry for my imperfections. I’ve tried to make the very best of every day in my life, and for me, that is way more than enough. I’m happy just the way I am, and I’m thankful for everything I have, everything I don’t have, and everything that I will never have.
Be a better you, for you. Dress up, wear heels, put some make-up on, for you. Live in your dream, be awesome in what you do, especially for you. Learn from your mistakes, get back up from your downfalls, for you. Be kind, be compassionate, also for you. Make yourself proud for being the very best of you, not to please anyone else but you.
Every people has their very own insecurity. They have flaws, failures, they all once did a couple of things they are not proud of. They have one soul crushing events they wish to forget. Their life is not perfect and nor is mine. I am no different with any other person I know. If there’s one thing I do differently, that one thing that many people is reluctant to do, is that I forgive my past. I accept my flaws. I make peace with my guilts and failures. It’s all simply because there’s nothing I can do to change everything that has happened back in my past. What’s gone is gone, I can only decide what I would like to do on the days to come. Rather than drowning in miseries, I moved on. I’ve seen many people turned their problems to a nightmare. They made their worst moments in life even worse than it should be. They pointed fingers, they blamed random innocent people, they pushed people away, they ran off from reality, they did nothing useful for their own life. Some of them even made their personal problems as someone else’s problems for no particular reason. They let their insecurities hurt people who has nothing to do with their downfalls. My life is no better nor easier than anyone else, but at least, I’m trying so hard to make my own life a better place. If I can do it, and so can you!
