Why didn't you get married?

Just have fun with this. It can be real things that happened to you or just reasons you have for not getting married.

    My daughter's dad; After awhile I realized he wasn't going to get off his *kitten* and amount to anything. I didn't want to support him, I had a baby to support.
    He ended married to a wonderful woman that ended up supporting him.

    I was engaged at 21 for the first time, but didn't marry the guy...mainly because he made me cry almost every day.
    I'm not a crier. He was pretty mean.

    ...and he bought multiple items of clothing for "our future son" even though I'd told him since Day 1 that I never wanted to have children. I'm sure that is considered cute to a lot of ladies but not this one.

    I wanted kids and wouldn't have thought that was cute until we were actually having one.. that's just strange. Sounds like you made the right decision.

    My for real answer though, I was engaged twice before I actually got married. The first one was stupid dumb love that luckily I grew out of and wisened up, the std's that weren't from me also helped me see the light.

    The second one I loved a lot, we are still friends but I broke it off cuz he was in the airforce and jumping from station to station, I decided I did not want to move to Japan and then get left there alone while he was out on tours. I kinda regret that now, I would have had a great life and lots of travel opportunities with that one.

    I was engaged at 17 to my first ever boyfriend. I was really stupid back then and would have but his mom broke us up. He suggested getting me pregnant so we could stay together. I said yes but plans fell through. THANK GAWD!
    I was with a guy for 4 years and some change and I had been waiting for him to pop the question. He did. It was a bribe to try to win me back after he cheated. I said no. No one is proposing to me on a cracked sidewalk with no ring AS A BRIBE! I was insulted and disgusted.
    No proposals since but my girlfriend talks about marriage and babies so we'll see.
    I only want it if it's real. That's why I'm going to die alone and childless. :/ Hopeless romantic crap really is hopeless.

    Yeah, definitely the right decision for me!

    The guy wound up with 3 kids, but seems like a loose cannon still which I find sad. Hopefully he is not so mean to his kids.
