_My partner and I are on vacation in beautiful rural Illinois (our hometown, in case anyone thinks I'm just super into cornfields) which means my internet time is limited. But I've been thinking a lot about this piece I wrote for Literally, Darling in February, and wanted to share it! For Throwback Thursday, here's my take on lady-on-lady snark regarding marriage.
"Sometimes I wonder if this entire debate boils down to insecurity on both sides. Are we yelling into the abyss to justify our decisions because deep down we won’t know for years if we made the right one? I get that—I really do. I have alternate timelines I consider on occasion, albeit all of them are darker than the one I’m currently in. But there are more constructive questions we could be asking in order to overcome the lingering fear of adulthood embedded in how we talk about marriage."
You can read the piece at Literally, Darling. And I would love to hear your thoughts on relationships, commitment, and marriage. So often conversations about topics related to marriage are framed as frivolous or non-challenging intellectually, and I think that does the importance of relationships injustice. We can and should think critically about how we approach marriage!
