    RE: Marriage - Is It Necessary?

    As much of a romanticism as it sounds, sometimes it's necessary not just for the sake of yourself and your significant other, but for everyone else around you. I will admit right now that I do enjoy having some time for myself rather than spending every waking moment I have with people, but when you subject yourself to personal time every day for an extended period of time, whatever the case is, it starts to add up and you start wishing that you could talk to someone face-to-face and share your thoughts, even for a short while.

    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    RE: Marriage - Is It Necessary?

    Interesting opinion, but what does it have to do with marriage? As a matter of fact, statistically, you're more likely to have social interaction with more people if you're not married.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: Marriage - Is It Necessary?

    What if you're planning a Star Wars wedding, like Miss. Nerdy-Pants (me)? With the imperial march being played when I'm walking in.

    You may be glorifing a legally binding contract. It may not even be necessary, but what's stopping you from having fun with it?
    My comment on this is, most likely, not relevant... so sorry if it's not that great.
    I can drink water like it's tea.

    I was going to get into it, but at the time of typing, I had no idea how to word it correctly. I think what I was trying to say is this: hypothetically, assume you have a group of friends and you're the only one who is a bachelor by...let's say age 30. Your friends will more often than not be planning to have families of their own, which I imagine will take up most of their free time. You as the bachelor will find that you aren't spending very much time with your group of friends than you usually did, which will leave you with three options:

    1. Make some new friends. That's usually the most obvious choice that has varying results depending on the individual.
    2. Get married yourself. Again, depends on the individual; you as a bachelor might not want to get married...
    3. Do nothing and cope. This may SEEM like the safest option in terms of maintaining one's comfort zone, but there's this constant fear of "dying alone" that I'm sure everyone has thought about at one point.

    Maybe there was bad timing on my previous comment, Mantis. I let my emotions kind of leak into the post because with me being on this study abroad trip in Italy right now, I think I've reached my low and have been in a pretty melancholy mood.

    @blue-penguin: Hey, attempting to bring in optimism to this thread is quite alright with me. Now that you mention it...having the wedding party dressed as Stormtroopers would make me rofl.

    Doing thing for the sake of others is one the worst reasons for doing anything in my opinion when it comes to marriage, if you and your significant are happy not being married go with it. If you two choose to get hitched on your own terms great more power to you two. Don't let others make the choice for because they want you to, not everybody can make good decisions. As the DARE program taught me, doing something because somebody tells you to makes you a dope or something to that matter.


    Star Wars wedding are always the funnest wedding to go to.

    We are all insane, we just act normal for the sake of others.

    You know, I re-read that post I made, and I must've been in a terrible mood. I don't think my point was to get married just because people say so or the other way around, because I totally agree that doing things for the sake of others, while selfless in intent, is almost always never in your favor. Maybe I had the topic of "loneliness" on my mind...

    Sorry I sounded mean and that was not my intent, but if look at the time I posted there is barely a minute after your new post. I just wanted share my opinion of your opinion and for us single folk the thought of "loneliness" does creep in once in awhile and leave a bad taste so to say. Here is a song to help you out.

    But what I don't get is, why do people think they have to be married to start a family? I stand by the statements I made about non-wedded couples being just as efficient as married ones, if not more so, without the legal stress involved. I realize however that those are my own personal beliefs, and perhaps I am being a bit pushy with them. It's just that blind acceptance of "tradition" is something that I deeply loathe about our society. To each his own, I guess. As Keith Hodge says: "Do whatever the F**K you wanna do!"

    I don't get it either, lloyd. But don't worry about being pushy with your beliefs; it's what we're all here for and it's why we have arguments like these that make us more open-minded.

    @Idolo: Hey, no worries over here. As long as you don't shove it into my mouth, you're entitled to your opinion.

    And yes, Ren & Stimpy always make me feel better. Hah hah.

    As long as two people can live together, without having fights and problems, and just getting along very well and loving each other, I don`t think that marriage is really necessary. You love your partner in life anyway, so why would signing a piece of paper be so important?
