....About Ten Very Good Reasons You (including myself) Aren't Married Yet.


Makes me feel better about not being married yet. Out of this list, I am numbers 1-3. II was very close to being married but realized it wasn't meant to be. Now I am currently in a very loving relationship for almost 3 years and super happy. Also, I am too focused on my career and now starting my MBA soon to be worrying about marriage. Lastly out of this list, I just don't have the money right now! 

What about you ladies who are not engage/married yet? Are any of these 10 realistic reasons why you are not married yet?

    Number One, but I've now met that condition and am planning my wedding. FI and I both wanted to be comfortable in our carrers before we got married. Had I met this condition a year ago, I might very well be getting married this summer, but since I hadn't, we're getting married next summer. 

    Some of those reasons made me LOL, and I personally don't know any gals that meet half of those conditions. I am sure they exist though!

    <div>Yes some of them made me lol too such as #8! Conratulations and good luck with your wedding planning! My BF and I feel the same, he wanted to more steady with his career and I wanted to finish my Bachelor's (which I just did in January). I did get accepted into an MBA program that I wanted, but do not start until Spring next year. </div>

    Definitely the first three. 

    Despite the fact BF and I have been together for so long, we're both pretty young concerning marriage and still in school. It can work for some couples, but we're trying to get school over and done with, get a foothold in our careers, get money saved and live together before we tie the knot. Besides, we're happy where we are now and we'll work with whatever is thrown in our path.

    Very interesting.  I'd say I was #1 and still am somewhat but, now that I'm more established in my career and all that hard work paid off, I gave myself some time to focus on other things like building a successful relationship. 

    I'd also say I fit #2 (I've been in long term relationships where the guy wanted to get married but I didn't want to settle), #6 (I have an interesting and full life...but not 500 friends Laughing) and #9 (I hate the word "issues" but I found that I gave and gave and gave in the past only to be ("duh" moment here) continuely taken advantage of).  I had to work on figuring out my needs and wants and comfortably expressing the same until I felt comfortable building a successful relationship.  That "investment" in me has paid off 100 fold in finding and growing my relationship with SO.

    Eh. I don't think I really apply to any of this. Maybe for a while it was school and career. But I don't think that's true either. If anyone would have showed up at that time, I would have mad it work. Standards? Possibly, though I'm not really picky when it comes to guys. Numbers 3 and 5 are crap. A wedding doesn't mean a marriage. As for 7, 8, and 9, umm. No. 10 was never true either. The closest is probably number 6. I am happy, and healthy, with some awesome friends. I never needed a guy. I don't NEED one now. But I enjoy having one.

    In the end, I'm still single because it took me this long to find someone who was intersted in me that I was interested in. Pretty simple.

    We're not engaged because home slice hasn't proposed even with ring in hand for over a year.

    T_T.

    We're definitely a 3. I'm too bothered by not being engaged, though, because of reason number 6.
