I felt the same way when I left my parent’s home… you have dreamed of it all your life and it’s now.. my fiancé and I (we live together) are going to get married when I would be financially independent from my parents, as i am still a student. I think you feel that way because it is a new situation and you’ve never felt like this before. maybe you may feel really grown up now and this is odd to you…posted over 1 year ago

I’ve been married for quite a while and have one child. I now believe this: no matter how much you love your partner, if you stay together very long, you will eventually face issues that seriously challenge your commitment. There WILL be days when you wonder if you’d be better off apart, or single, or with someone else. I think this is just life, and doesn’t mean you don’t love each other. In fact, I think it’s normal and healthy.
IMO, having done the marriage ceremony slows down the impulse to just run away when those inevitable challenges come up. It’s harder work to get a divorce than just to move out.
Those are just my opinions, though.posted over 1 year ago
If one wants to marry, it is probably best to do so when you are young (early to mid 20’s) and have options for decent partners.
As people age, they get more picky about a partner, and sadly, most people seem to want someone way out of their league. Unattractive middle age unemployed men want some 21 year old model, and overweight women with 4 kids want some rich guy.
Both are nice fantasies but people think they are entitled to such a partner way over their OWN league.
When you are younger, you still have your good looks and a lot to offer and can grow with your partner. Better yourselves as a couple instead of hoping the above scenario is more than fantasy.posted over 1 year ago
I don’t want to get married. I want to have a lifetime partner to share my life with but I don’t think I have to get married in order to do this. With marriage will come expectations to have children, and that I do not want as well.posted about 1 year ago
