My mother is pressurizing me to get married! What do I do?
I have been through all sorts of pressure in my entire life, but nothing beats the “parental marriage pressure”. This pressure is getting too much for me, please! Most especially from my mother. Can a guy not have some peace?
Its supposed to be a relaxing weekend after a hectic work week! And all I want to do is chill out and watch football highlights from matches that I missed.
Why is it so difficult for them to understand that I am not ready for this major milestone in my life? This is a life commitment. Yes, it is important, I know they have my interest at heart and they also want to have grand kids especially because am the first child.
The honest truth is that I will rather want to take my time than jump into any marriage just to make them happy. It is my life right? and I have to live it for me and not for them!
It is better to go in and stay for life than jump out midway. The divorce rate these days is just not encouraging. I have to shine my eyes very well o!
So from this weekend onward, I am positive that I just can’t take it anymore. I have decided to seat them down and thrash this out once and for all.
I must let them know my happiness comes first and I will not be pressurized in any way.
Whatever the case is, I believe taking my time firstly in getting into a relationship with the right person of like mind.
Also when both of us are emotionally, psychologically, financially and physically ready then we will take the next steps.
Is this a right or wrong move? How well do I handle this situation with my parents so it doesn’t get out of hand?
