Why Do I Want To Get Married?

It’s the adult thing to do. It’s the Jewish thing to do. It’s the expected thing.

What’s the alternative? Go through life alone?

I want to have children. I want regular sex and regular food. I want a clean home. I want clean clothes. I don’t want to walk out the door mismatched.

I want to grow. I want to experience everything deep that life has to offer.

Pain shared is half pain. Joy shared is twice joy.

I have a lot of blind spots, many of them deadly. I need a partner to gently point them out.

I miss a lot of things without a partner. I’ll go to a dinner and I’ll miss many of the important social dynamics.

I want to bond. I want to connect. I want to join a family.
