A lot of people out there fear marriage or flat out hate it because they are afraid that they are going to lose their freedom.
But what is freedom?
Is it the freedom to do whatever you want whenver you want?
Is it the freedom of having the ability to be romantically involved with whomever you want whenever you want?
Is it the freedom of having no responsibilities and only worrying about yourself?
I know a man in his mid forties who never got married by choice, he wanted to enjoy his freedom, and let me tell you I have never seen anyone sadder looking in my life. He has the cool car, the nice house the things most married people strive for but at the same time he has nothing, no wife no partner no kids no substance in his life, just decadence and he is very lonely, nothing means anything to him, he over dosed on freedom.
He doesn’t say he is sad but when he holds my daughter I can see the sadness.
Bob Dylan and Janice Joplin said it best, “When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose.” and “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.”
