Hello. My name is Ayanna. I am 30 years old, unmarried, and normal. There is nothing “wrong” with me. I do not have a ton of cats (or any for that matter). I am not LOOKING for “Mr. Right.” I am not lonely. I am not desperate. I am fine. Being unmarried is a choice, despite popular belief.
People put way too much value on marriage and having babies. I don’t quite understand why they’re viewed as an accomplishment or challenge. Neither one requires much effort (Note: I am not saying maintaing a HAPPY marriage and raising a child is easy, rather, GETTING married and MAKING a baby takes little effort). Unless you and your mate are both arm and leg-less, sex is quite simple (I definitely would pay to see torso porn).
The wedding is the only thing that would excite me about marriage. Honestly, I would just like to redo the scene from “Coming to America” and have Debbie Allen choreograph my procession. Either that, or ride a HUGE tortoise down the aisle while holding a blinged out stick with a carrot in front of him.
What really is the purpose of marriage? Why can’t two people just enjoy each other’s company, share as much space/money/responsibilities as they decide without involving the government/IRS/50+ guest/photographer/caterer/minister?
