You’re Tied down

When you’re married, you are tied down. For some, being tied down isn’t so bad and they don’t look at it as if they are on a rope and chain and if you do, maybe you should look into your marriage. However, perhaps you are not ready to be tied down to one person.


No Parties

I know, you can go to parties when you are married still, but not like you used to. Now that you are married, parties alone are not really allowed – sure, work parties – but not friend parties and if you do happen to go, there should be no drinking.


You Have to Answer to Someone

When you are married, you will have to answer to someone. Personally, I do not mind this, but I know many of you probably are not ready to answer for someone. You just got out of having to answer to your parents.


Your Hobbies

Face it, when you are married, you will be working half the time and the other half of the time, you will be spending time with your husband or wife. Where does this leave any time for hobbies?


Physical Fitness

Have you ever noticed that once those words “I Do” pop out of your mouth, about fifty pounds gets added onto the body? It’s true!



Many top of the line scientists are not married. Most of them are single. This way, they have more time to do research and not have to worry about going home to their spouse.



One reason not to get married is because of school. If you plan on going to college, then getting married may slow your college degree down.

That is 7 reasons not to be married. Whether you get married or you do not get married, it is completely up to you. I am not going to tell you what to do because personally, I do not see any reasons not to be married. I think of marriage as my own personal achievement, I find hobbies to do with my husband and I do not mind answering to someone.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I have to say I have mixed feelings about this. As someone whose wedding was called off 2 months before it was supposed to happen (by the guy), I struggle with this as I go through my grieving process. I think not going to parties anymore is a pretty superficial reason to NOT get married. I mean, dinner parties, academic parties, family parties. If you are married, that doesn't mean you are giving up your right to go out and have fun. The other issue I have is with your thoughts about hobbies. Let's be real - you can't spend ALL your time with your husband or wife - autonomy is important too! You need to find things to do together, but respect each person's need for individuality as well. And well...for the school thing, on many levels I do agree. I am planning to seek another graduate degree, but the hubby to be was hesitant to move elsewhere for school...leaving some crappy options in my hometown. But marriage is about negotiation and compromise, not "giving things up" as this suggests.

I love this article...so true...yes I would miss all these things, but that doesn't mean I don't want to get married :) all the little things you do when you are single is just so heavenly at times... :)

I agree on certain points but I do see some women out there able to give it a good balance after they got married, guess it depends on the individual. Just personally for me, I'm not a big firm believer on marriage that's all :)

This sounds more like a list of a bitter person who wants to get married but can't find a guy then actual reasons to not get married...
