Good post. We're not getting the "Why aren't you married?" question. We're getting "So when are you getting married?" Uh, when we feel like it. I think we will get married. Some part of me wants to be married, though I'm not sure what difference it actually makes in our lives/relationship. I don't know. Maybe I just want to be married because it's a easy way to get a new last name. :-)

Our next battle will be explaining to people that WE'RE NOT having children. I've known since I was a young kid that I didn't want to actually have a child. I just thought that all women HAD to have children, so I decided at a young age that I'd adopt. Now that I'm older, I've figured out that I don't HAVE to have children. I really do have a choice. And my choice is to live a rug-rat free life. My mother is OK with that choice, but his mother is NOT.

Anyway, that was a long slightly off=topic rant. :-)

well, I think most women want to get married some day, and that's cool. I just have never been one of them and I can't believe the aghast looks I get from people when I say "I have never had any desire to be married." When I was in my twenties, women would always say "Oh, you'll change your mind" when we discussed either the marriage or the kid thing. Like I had no idea what my own desires and needs were, ya know? Now they just look at me like I'm an alien. At this point, even if I had the desire to get married I probably wouldn't do it, just out of rebellion. :) Plus, I think it will be kind for cool to be an eighty year old woman still living in sin with my "boyfriend".

I'm the same as you - I thought if I ever did decide to have kids, I would adopt. But even now, when I consider the notion, I know it would just not work at all. I like kids and think they can be a lot of fun...but I only like SOME of them and I like to send them home at the end of the day. :)
