So I got in an intense argument with the people in my calculus class today about the point of marriage and associated rituals
And they all gave me pitying looks because I'm single and I told them to go fuck themselves
although I'm not going to degrade the ceremony of marriage for people who want it
is it so controversial to say that marriage should be about wanting to make a commitment to someone
rather than about dressing up or having an expensive party or societal pressure or doing it because you think that you have nowhere else ...
to progress with the relationship?
isn't the romantic part not in flowers or dresses or food or company
but in the idea of agreeing to love someone and stick by them?
Not that marriage doesn't have great legal and financial benefits
and of course I'm extremely for marriage equality
All I'm saying is that I don't know why I can't say that I don't personally want the associated rituals
without being branded cynical or a killjoy
It was a frustrating discussion
