Campsite ‘if’ question #2

A second question from Wes goes like this:

Q2: “If you had to advise a young person about whether or not to get married, what would you say?”

A2: Another L—O—N—G pause. It’s complicated, partly because relationships are under such pressure (it seems) these days, and since so many people are jaded and jilted by what they thought life might bring and what it ended up not bringing.

A2a: YES….get married if….

A2b: …if you are fully OK and prepared to be single.  There’s no sense merging into another’s life when you yourself are not fully present and aware, and willing to be interdependent. Independence will be a thing of the past, and it will be expanded by something bigger and better. However, it’s not a 50/50 proposition. Only 100/100 will do.

A2c: ….NO…don’t get married if you think another person will satisfy, or fill the cracks, or be for you all the time, or will fulfill a contract. It doesn’t happen that way. But covenant relationships can work and are worth it.

  • 35 years
  • Life partner

Curious about:

  • what will relationships look like as society and more and more people (it seems) progressively become increasingly  disenchanted with togetherness?
