Inappropriate Relations

Ahhhh!! Can someone please explain to me why marriage is suppose to be a life goal. It's more like a dog leash constantly pulling you away from all the fun toys. The point of getting married isn't so you can have kids and live in a quaint suburb, driving around in your super stylish minivan or SUV. No, the real reason people get married is to stake claim to a person and give the world the impression that you are fabulous because one person in a sea of millions wanted you and only you.
Sure there are financial benefits and the fact that you now can play god with your spouse's life if they get seriously injured. You can love one person in a lifetime or a handful but every time your heart starts dancing doesn't mean you should walk down the aisle. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it's damaged at least try to understand and decide if it's worth mending.
When you break it down the only real difference between being single or dating or married is that you now aren't suppose to have inappropriate relations (gotta love Bill Clinton) with anyone else for the rest of your existence. Which being that 99% of couples rarely see their spouse’s goods is pretty bizarre. But what if you get bored? It doesn't mean you don't love your partner any less because you want the affection of another person. The majority of the time it's a wake up call that the passion and affection have been replaced with kids, work, money concerns, etc.
Threesomes are always fun at first. The more the merrier right? The fantasy is always so much better on screen. Behind closed doors a very different story. Someone always walks away with their head down wondering why they couldn't be number one? Why they had to accept being runner up. There will always be someone bigger, someone smoother, someone more alluring and exotic. If you don't factor this in you will always be disappointed.
Falling in love is the easy part. Staying in love takes work. It's a two way street. There is never one person more at fault for the breakup. Shit happens. People change, but you can't honestly say you didn't see the ending coming.
