I don’t want to marry you. I just want a life partner.”
It’s hard to say “no,” but it’s important that we make it clear when someone isn’t interested in marrying us for the right reasons. If one person is looking for a serious commitment and the other is not, then it won’t work out well in the end. In this article, we’ll take a look at 10 reasons why you might not be ready to get married:
1) You haven’t found The One yet;

I didn’t marry my first husband, and it’s easy to think that I could’ve been more of an adult about the situation. But at the time, I was so in love with him; he would do anything for me just like a Disney fairytale romance. Little did I know how difficult marriage can be when you’re not 100 percent committed to each other from day one. This is why anyone who tells you they don’t want children or don’t have time for their spouse should reconsider before getting married.
It’s hard to say “I do” when “I don’t.” The journey towards matrimony isn’t always smooth sailing, and it’s never one-size-fits-all.
There are many reasons people might want to avoid marriage – or at the very least, reevaluate why they want it in the first place. The following is an exploration of ten common reasons for avoiding matrimony that I have encountered over my 15 years as an event coordinator catering to women (at weddings). From thinking about your finances before making any decisions, to not wanting kids, these are some great points worth considering before taking on a lifelong commitment.
No time for your spouse.”
Many couples in their twenties and thirties don’t feel as though they have the time to spare on another person – either because of work, children or other life obligations – when it seems that all of them require more than enough attention already. If you find yourself in this boat, know that there are many others who share these same feelings! There are plenty of people with busy lifestyles who still find a way to make marriage part of their lives; we just need to figure out how it will fit into ours so we can decide if it’s worth it. Whatever our priorities may be (family first, career foremost…) finding ways to balance them is what makes us sturdy individuals and strong spouses.
We all know that it’s not always easy to find the time and energy for our spouse, but we also know that it is something worth doing as they are important in our lives! This article will explore some of the reasons why marriage might not be a good idea if you’re just looking for someone to spend your life with–though it doesn’t mean there aren’t other considerations at play too.
