After three months of dating, my friend Kevin discovered the woman he is seeing doesn’t believe in marriage, at all. He said that it caught him by surprise because he had never encountered a great woman that didn’t want to get hitched.
I think that this pretty much torpedoes their chances of a relationship. He believes in marriage, she doesn’t, what’s there to figure out? Kevin wonders if she would change her mind and has considered waiting on that to happen. He thinks she is the “total package” except for this anti-marriage idea. I think that is a recipe for disaster, but when a guy is this far gone, I can’t do much but hope for the best.
Would you risk giving up something you really want because the person you are with has a different outlook then you do?
Have you ever met or dated someone who doesn’t believe in marriage? Would you continue to date them if they didn’t want the same thing you did?
Would you date someone if you knew there was no chance of marrying them?
If you don’t believe in marriage, do you let people know this soon after you meet them so that they know upfront?
