I believe that marriage should only be on the basis of love- this love consisting of liking another person so much that you wish to spend the rest of your life with that individual in close proximity. However, our society, throughout history, has used marriage as a political means to joins families and cultures in order to better their world.
I do not believe I was ever meant to get married by the way marriage is defined by society’s terms.
I have the capacity to love someone so deeply that every inch of my being is theirs and I believe that someday I can love even more beings with all of my being. But if I were to get “married” I would be lying to myself as well as the indivual I signed the contract with.
So, my conclusion is that one day I want to have a ceremony and in love share my love for that being with as many people as I believe deserve to be witness to the affair but I will never sign a paper agreeing to the terms of our love or use it to define anything to eachother.
If I were to ever get married it would be solely in love. The ceremony would be the marriage and it would be a truer testament to stay with this individual for the rest of my life if there were no contract that kept us together. Only true love and soulful passion would bind us and no contract would be null and void from our arrangement with eachother if we ever were to drift apart.
The largest concern in marriage is that your partner will grow but not towards you. I hope and pray I shall find someone who will grow every moment for the rest of their lives and that I will have the opportunity to grow with them on every adventure.
