As I scroll through relationship questions, I noticed that in a lot of instances, whenever someone has a question regarding a relationship problem and they aren't married, there are many women whose answer to that question is along the lines of "if you got married, this wouldn't be a problem". Problems with the kids getting along with the boyfriend, living together, privacy, etc. - they say getting married will fix it. Doesn't seem to matter how long the relationship is - 6 weeks or 6 years, no difference in answer as far as I can see.
Yet, if a woman who is married posts about problems, those same women who type "get married" to the unmarried woman, will tell the married woman that she jumped in too soon and if she'd taken longer to get to know him then she wouldn't have this problem.
What happened to dating someone for a while to get to know them before getting married? I mean, yes I agree that some problems do get resolved with marriage, but they are generally minor problems, and I don't think getting married to attempt to resolve a problem is a good idea. But I do think any relationship is a commitment and you should try to resolve problems.
But it just seems to me some of those answers are rather hypocritical. Not sure I'm explaining this quite the way I hoped, but hopefully you get what I'm trying to say.
