OMG. Its insulting to tell a person that is Married; that Marriage is just a piece of paper. Bullshit. FOR YOU IT IS. So only speak for YOURSELF. But dont disvalue Marriage just because it dosent work for you.


My bitter ex friend said this to Me. She has been with the sae dude for 10 years. 3 kids. They got engaged valentines of this year. She goes on a rant on how  long ter relationships are no different than Marriage. I said do what Makes you happy. no she keeps ranting. So i ask why the fuck are you engaged if Marriage is just a piece of paper. to be honest i think he got a shut up ring for her because she kept bitching about not being Married.


THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID EXACTLY...

Friend. I dont see the point of getting married?

me: Why?

Friend: Because it feels the same as it does in a long term plus my family keeps bugging us about it.

me: Do what makes you happy. Dont do it if its for someone is pleasing. It should be what you and (Desmond want)

Friend: True. But I want to push the wedding date back. He just dont know thats how I feel. I mean I can tell your marriage is just a piece of paper.

me: What? Why would you say that?

Friend: Because thats all you have and nothing else.

me: Than why the fuck are you engaged if you believe marriage is just a piece of paper. I'm good with what I got. I'm happy and I have nothing to do with you and Desmond. I have to talk to you when your in a better mood. dueces.

Dial tone.............


THIS IS NOT A marriage vs. non-married battle. DO WHAT makes YOU happy. PLEASE DO. Thats all that matters. No one opinion shapes my love for my husband. But my ex BF was being disrespectful. ITs not the first time. When I told her I was getting married her reply was. "ROLLING EYES". and said that's messed; me and my boyfriend have been together longer than yours. 

I'm so done with her bitterness. Being married dosent prove that your commitmitted just as much as not being married dosent prove marriage is just a piece of paper. TO EACH THEIR OWN. HAPPY HOLLIES

My marriage is only a piece of paper. My husband doesn't live with me anymore and does whatever he wants.

Yes and no. You simply have to take it as an opinion. Others have a right to theirs just as you have your right to yours. Why should their opinion offend you simply because you disagree with it?
I am also married and it means much more to me than a piece of paper. But if someone were to tell me that it is simply a piece of paper, I would just shrug because their opinion has no say in my marriage or my feeling.

Don't let your bitter ex-friend bug ya. I've been happily un-married to a great guy for over 12 years and if you think about it, that piece of paper isn't your commitment to your relationship. :) /2cents

To me that's what it is which is why I am no hurry to get married because it really won't change a thing.

I don't believe I have ever directly told someone that though, just state how I feel when asked why I'm not married.
