There’s something to be said about certain traditions. Whether you’re a religious person or not, marriage is a wonderful way to ceremonially profess your undying fealty to someone else, a someone in whom you found a seriously deep connection with. In a world of swipe-lefts and “You ups,” marriage is a pure, clean breath of fresh air.
What’s wrong with celebrating a couple that wants to show the world they intend to spend the rest of their lives together? It’s some light in the doom and gloom. Plus, the tax break is a pretty solid perk.
No one gets married for the marriage these days; it’s all about the weddings. People spend ridiculous amount of money on a day pressured to be “the happiest day of their lives” without really thinking beyond that one day. Then what happens? Divorce and/or discontent.
If you’re really in love with someone, you don’t have to be all showy about it. Romance is a private matter, a sacred thing not meant to be cheapened by tacky Instagram photos and by inviting hundreds of people you don’t care about to one silly event. Be true to each other in your own way; you can blow your cash on something more fun.
