Today’s Review is plastered with stories about being single, unmarried and…*gasp*… HAPPY!!!
I almost cried at the fact that people are finally realising that you dont need to be married or seeing anyone to be happy… The two things that struck me most in the different articles were…
1. When comparing marriage to eternal bliss, it was said eternal bliss is not so blissful because “Eternal bliss SNORES!!!!” … lol! it also said eternal bliss puts restrictions on your freedom, when you can go visit your mother, on your career, on which friends you can have…
I mean, please..who needs eternal bliss if thats what it entails!
2. Pakistani mentality dictates, and again I quote, ” If a girl crosses 30, she is past her sell- by date, and everyone automatically assumes something is wrong with her – no one ever lifts an accusing finger towards the man – even if he might have chucked her out of the house. If a girl doesnt marry, she is either gay or has boyfriends”.
COME ON PEOPLE!!! is this how we were raised to think? must everything be about submission to men? I mean, don’t you all, men and women, agree with me on this, that marriage requires SO much sacrifice on a girls part? leaving her house , her family, her friends, changing entirely the way she does things, making sure every one is happy, making sure she doesn’t step on anyone’s toes –
Men, you get to go on business trips, be away from screaming kids all day, sit in an airconditioned enviornment , go on business trips to exotic places by day, and nightclubs at night – men need to realise how MUCH women do, and express their appreciation- treat your women with respect, (and I mean women who choose to be your wives, not your possessions), and treat them as equals, not as subordinates, who are supposed to make you hot fresh chappatis even if they are bone tired taking care of YOUR kids, YOUR houses, and YOUR parents.
So, my point being, women are finally realising that they don’t need this shit from unappreciative men, and that thye can be single and happy, and pursue their careers. They can be financially independant, emotionally independant, and have very fulfilling lives. Even parents are coming to terms with this, and society is going to slowly become more accepting…
If you’re a single gal, enjoy your freedom, pursue your dreams, and remember that you are as good as every man, if not better, and more competent. And NEVER EVER EVER let any man make you feel otherwise! 🙂
Hurray for women! 🙂 lets party!
