Why Get Married?

For ages, I didn’t think myself the type to marry. I was young, free to do as I pleased, and the world my oyster when it came to women—or so was my naïve thinking about marriage for several years.

Now, on the day of my wedding, my thinking couldn’t be more different. I know that there’s a lot of people out there in the 18-34 age category who have marriage as the last thing on their minds (yes, mostly guys), but I don’t think it’s as bad as people make it out to be.
