Why Millennials Refrain from getting married

Published

on

You might have attended a couple of weddings of your college colleagues last summer; however, more and more of us millennials are kind of avoiding and postponing the idea of marriage. Men and women alike seem to have other priorities and goals than getting wed-locked.

The obsession of getting married preferably as early as possible doesn’t exist in our generations, and the older ones just don’t get it yet. We can’t help but smile politely and forcibly when we are always asked when we are planning to settle down; “hanfr7 beko emta?” they always say.

So, here is to every “Tant” who still believes that the ultimate happiness only found in marriage, we have 4 reasons why we don’t really care about marriage:

Career Goals:

In the 21st century, little girls are still taught to grow up aspiring to be housewives; instead of looking for making something out of themselves, they are told to get a husband as soon as possible. Right now, we are old enough to realize that be successful is focusing on yourself and working as hard as you can to reach your career goals. Marriage don’t make you a successful person, your achievements do.

Travelling the World:

We are no longer waiting to get married to make our wishes come true, we do know that waiting till marriage to do the things we want is a myth. Some of us realized that they are capable of making our wishes coming true by being strong, independent and working as hard as we can. We are too busy saving money and planning our next trips around the globe.

Figuring out who you are:

Relationships is a hard work, it needs two mature compatible partners. In order to maintain a healthy marriage, you need to figure out who you are first. We have realized that being lost or not have an idea who we really don’t really qualify us to build a family.

Commitment Issues:

Yup, that is a 100% legit reason! Something about commitment makes us want to flee away. We would rather run free instead of being tied down to one person forever, the idea just sound re

It’s Time You Walk Away When…

Published

on

By

I hold my phone every other second, still, not a single word from him. I toss and I turn, not able to sleep, and I start to wonder, is he okay? What is he doing right now? Has he gone home safely? I’ll text and see. ‘No. Stop it. He’s fine not hearing from you.’ My overthinking begins to tell me.

Why is he okay not asking about me when I’m not? Well, maybe because this is my first sign that I should away.

1- They care less than you do

When your relationship starts getting fragile, it is important that the other person assures you that they have equal feelings. That you’re both in this together, and you will work it out, together. It should never be all on you, you shouldn’t be the only person making the effort. So stop being the quicker person to call, and stop worrying so much. Let them do the call, the texting, let them do the fixing. Because again, you’re in this together, or you’re out, you walk away.

2- They always make excuses not to meet

You want to meet up, go over things, discuss it like adults and come up with a plan, right? But it never happens, right? Because they always seem to find an excuse to get out of it, or they simply can’t do this same conversation again. They say they can’t do this fighting anymore, but when you’re fighting for your relationship, then it’s legitimate and if they can’t do it, they don’t deserve you.

3- They can’t be trusted

Relationships can lack several fundamentals, but one thing it should never lack, is trust. It is what relationships are built on, and once it is taken from the equation, the relationship falls. I’m not telling you to give up the second they do you wrong, but to earn your trust again, they should work hard for it, and this chance you are giving them, should never be taken for granted.

4- They are cold

The way they treat you is cold, the way they respond is cold, even the way they smile back at you is cold. This change in behavior can only be spotted by you, and when you start comparing their responses to the way it used to be, this is when you will get your answer.

Never allow yourself to be with someone, who just doesn’t seem to care anymore. Someone who’s keeping you, because they are being selfish, and not reasonable.

5- They exhibit an error in communication

Communication is a key to a healthy relationship, it’s important for the both of you to know that you’re standing on the same ground, that you both feel and want the same thing. It’s okay to experience some miscommunication, but what matters is for the both of you to admit having this issue; so you can work through it and get past it.

Try to allow the space for each of you to speak their minds, with no interruptions AT ALL. Listening is a key to understanding, and accepting that difference in your point of views, is another key.

I can never really tell you for sure that this is your cue to leave, because at the end, it’s not signs that you should follow, it is your intuition. So what does it tell you?

Go bowling or skiing @SkiEgypt, maybe even some arcade fun @Magic planet, get some take outs afterwards and cruise in your car while playing your favorite tunes. It doesn’t have to something fancy to be romantic, some girls like simplicity, if your is that kind, then choose a casual place where she can be herself in.
