Stop pressuring me

Yes, I am single and I am so aware of that.  So, stop reminding me that I should get married sooner because I am not getting any younger.  If marrying is easy, I have done it many years ago.  However, married is a serious commitment.  I want to settle down to a man whom I love and love me in return.  I do not want to get married in a hurry because I do not want to regret it later on.  “Why still single?  When will you get married?”  Even if I am used to these questions, still is pisses me off hearing the same questions over and over.

Many says that I am so picky.  Yes, I am picky, who doesn’t?  Being picky is not a sin, it is just making sure that we made the right decision in life.  We all want the best for us.  And I want that for me.  I am praying to God to give me the man whom I love and love me back.  Anyways, I am saying this because my relatives in the province is keep on asking me.  In fact they are pressuring me to get married sooner because of my age.  What is wrong with my age?arghs!  I am not in a hurry at my age because I am pretty sure that God is preparing the best man for me.  So, stop pressuring me please.  I am happy with my life now, I am waiting for the right man for me.  Hopefully God will send it to me this year.  Amen!

I do not think it is a good idea

Yesterday at the birthday celebration of the nephew, the cousin and I are having a little conversation and our topic is getting married and having a baby.  She told me that I should get married soon because I am not getting any younger.  Oh yeah, here we go again.  She said that I should double my time this year because at my age, bearing a child is difficult.  If I am not fortunate enough to walk down aisle, at least I have a baby to take good care of me when I get old.  Getting married is not longer an issue, the main goal is to have a child.

I respected the cousin’s points of view, but thinking it thoroughly I do not think it is a good idea.  I still believe that if I were to have a child, at least under the context of married.  I do not like to think that the reason of having a child is to have someone to be with me when I am bed ridden already.  I think it is so unfair for the child.  It is still best to have the child out of love and with the blessings of God through marriage.  I’d rather grow old alone that taking the cousin’s suggestions.  If I am blessed to get married and have a child, it would be a dream come true.  I am hoping, praying and wishing always.  Hopefully sooner.
