I was listening to Power 105's Breakfast Club this morning with Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlemagne the God; they were talking about how Eva Mendes said in an interview that she did not believe in marriage and felt like it was boring. She went on to say that most people don't even marry for the reason that marriage was specified for.. meaning love. The radio hosts went on to talk about how they felt about marriage. Angela Yee agreed that most people she knows did not get married because they were in love. She said it was either because of one person giving the other an ultimatum, she ended up pregnant and they decided to get married, or they feel like they've been together for so long they might as well get married.
Charlemagne, who willingly states how he isn't going to settle down with one woman, said that he felt like marriage was boring as well. He wanted to be able to have as many women as he pleases with no repercussions. On the other hand DJ Envy disagreed and stated that marriage was very important. But his reasoning for his response proved Angela Yee correct… He said that marriage could help you financially. While he agreed that love was important, he said that the financial gain you can encounter in a marriage makes it worthwhile.
I found this discussion funny but interesting because each person had a different response and I felt like their opinions may respresent majority of society as a whole. I personally feel like marriage should be about love first and everything else should fall into place. I do think that people tend to rush into marriage (women especially) trying to live by society's standards that they are supposed to be married with kids by a certain age. A lot of times this will cause us to marry the wrong person, and who wants to go through a messy divorce later down the road?? All I can tell you is to follow your heart and use your head in the process; having the wrong person as your husband or wife can definitely be life altering.
So how do you guys feels about marriage? Are you the type that's rushing to tie the knot, waiting to jump the broom when the time comes, or running from the alter?? Let us know your thoughts with a comment and check some of the pics below for a few celeb marriages that didn't work out so well.
