Top 11 Worst Reasons to Get Married

Most couple get marred for many different reasons, but sometimes most people get married for the wrong reasons. If you having cold feet know that there are good reasons to cancel a wedding and some and some bad reasons to get married either.

In this blog post I will be outlining the top 10 reasons to get married.

Guilt From Your Parents/society

Parents can be good at sending their kids to all-expenses paid guilt trips. They would say things like “I just want to see you get married before I dier. Is that too much to ask?” or maybe “I’m the only one of my friends without grandchildren. When are you going to settle down, marry, and have kids?” or even simple “when are you getting married” get make you feel guilty if asked enough times in the right way.

Regardless, guilt is a terrible reason to get married. You need to live you life and do the best thing for you.


We know some religion ask you to wait until marriage to have sex, you might get tempted to rush to get that dream wedding. Surely its hard to wait while others are having sex. Sex shouldn’t be the reason to get married as its just one way to you and partner feel good.

Try giving each other massages, have long make out sessions, express your love in different ways.


Most people get married quickly after they are pregnant. Other want kids so bad so that they get married to someone who is not really right for them.

If your girlfriend if pregnant you might feel extra pressure from your family to tie the knot. Please realize that there are many different options available to you, including having the client together not getting married, raising the child alone and considering other options.

The ticking of a biological clock or a pregnancy can be another powerful motivator, but shouldn’t land you in a loveless marriage.

To Have a Dream Wedding

A wedding is an amazing, beautiful thing that can strengthen your relationship and improve your life. However, there’s also a lot of hype around weddings that can make you really want one, even if you’re not ready, or your sweetheart isn’t marriage material. From the hyperbolic rhetoric of “the best day of your life” to shiny pictures in magazines, it’s easy to be swept away by the fantasy of a wedding day.

The truth is that your wedding is just one day and marriage is for the rest of your life. You can still have that dream wedding when you are truly ready for it. By not rushing your wedding, you can have a longer and more special engagement that will help prepare you for a long and special marriage.

To Get Presents

Many people eagerly look forward to the presents that waits when they get married. Yet this cant be the only reason to get married. You might infact spend more money in the wedding than you would buy yourself the presents.

Before you rush in, make sure that your beloved is really who you want to be sharing those towels with for the rest of your life.


Being lonely is hard, and many people are afraid of being alone. When you get to a certain age, it might seem like a person is your “last good option.” But you will meet other people to love, and if you settle, you might miss out on someone really amazing later on.

When you feeling lonely remember the powerful, successful people who have never married i.e Oprah, Condoleezza Rice, Bill Maher, and Al Pacino, to name just a few.


All Your Friends Are Getting Married

You might feel left out if it seems like everyone but you is headed to the altar.

It is nice to go through life’s milestones on the same track as your friends. Then again, it’s always better to be the last of your friends to get married than the first one to get divorced.

As a bonus, if you wait, your friends will have better wedding advice and more time to help you with yours.

You’re Feeling Pressure

This might be the most common reason people have a wedding before they’re ready. There’s intense pressure in a marriage proposal, and it’s not easy to say, “I love you but I’m not ready yet.”

If you really love someone, you owe it to them to be honest. It’s hard and painful, but it’s a lot easier than living a lie or having to say that you never wanted to get married.

Your Ex Is Engaged

There is a sick, delicious joy in telling an ex that you’ve found someone better. When an ex is engaged, it might feel like the shoe is on the other foot.

There are many better ways to make an ex realize that you are the one who got away.


Marrying for money is a tired cliché . Money can make life easier, but it can also make life more complicated, and it’s never as valuable as being loved.

Remember, when you get legally married, you take on a person’s debt along with their assets.

Some people aren’t as rich as they seem. Even if you have found someone who is truly wealthy, it might create a power imbalance that will prevent you from having a happy life together. Make sure that love is the main reason you’re getting married, not money.
