To love is the highest reward… and to stay committed is the biggest fear! Welcome to generation ‘easy-makeup-and-breakup’- where marriage is nothing but the most unwanted call imposed in the minds and thoughts.
Coming from a society of arrange marriages, our generation is a bit scared about from the entire concept of marriage. The finding of a suited match, the family permissions, and most importantly, the complexity of dealing with adulthood is nothing but a nightmare. With time and tide, we have witnessed change in our attitude and beliefs. The high cases of divorce, one-night stands, live-in relationships and single parenthood has affected the modern mindset. We have to accept it- that yes; we are scared of getting married. So here are the 7 most genuine reasons to proof your mental state!
1.‘And they lived Happily-Ever-After’- We have enough of this Drama:
No more fairytales please- we have had enough of the blunt realities of life. Our generation is more realistic and logical.
2.We want to focus on our careers- much more than our previous generations
Spending 25 years in education doesn’t mean that on one fine day, you will end up getting married to a complete stranger. Our generation is much more career-oriented- we know where to channelize the energies.
3.We are not ready to compromise- we respect equal ‘respects’
Compromise cannot be a one-sided affair! Excuse me but we are too obsessed with our respects and space.
4.We want to explore our dreams- we are in the quest of finding ourselves
It isn’t new, since Gautama Buddha did the same thing with his family life. The quest for self is a call that nobody should disconnect unattended. A wondering mind should not be controlled with the chains of marriage. Let your dreams fly high.
5.Commitment is a nightmare for us
Now that’s a fear! Yes we are commitment phobic.
6.Perfection and idealism is not our cup of tea
I am sinfully flawless- are you ready to accept that? The exaggeration of ‘Ideal Bahu’ and ‘selfless family-man’ is scary!
7.We know that companionship is not all about wedding:
Companionship can come in diverse forms- it could be friends, love, family and even pets. Then why paying so much attention to marriage!
