Gay marriage! Gay marriage! Gay marriage! I’m sick of it! Where’s my people at?! The people who are opposed to straights getting married, a.k.a., opposed to marriage altogether?!
If you wanna ruin a good thing, get married. If you wanna ruin something that was already ruined by marriage, add religious undertones to it. Voila! You have ruined a perfectly good relationship with the religious version of a civil union ~.~ Look, I’m all up for civil unions for everybody, but NO ONE should get married.
First off, you can never date long enough to catch all the deal-breaker ‘quarks’ of your ‘significant other’ that would have led you to not get married in the first place; secondly, no one ever thinks about how long ‘until death do us part’ actually is. Gay, straight, whatever, you’re statistically most likely to have a divorce before then anyway, so why even bother?
Basically, at the end of the day, although there are marriages that last ‘until death do us part long,’ they’re usually already dead inside anyway, and odds are you aren’t going to fair any better, so don’t rush things.
Lastly, before anyone gets up-in-arms about this; this is NOT me saying ‘F*ck gay marriage!’, this is me saying ‘F*ck marriage altogether’ ~.~
