If you have seen this week, Kirsty Allsop (good at crafts, does something with houses) has explained why she and her partner of 12 years remain unmarried. She said ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.
I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about my own situation, as I myself am not married.
We have no plans to ever get married. We’re both happy with that and contrary to popular belief I’m not waiting with baited breath for the time that Sam will get down on one knee.
It’s not going to happen.
We don’t really have too many reasons, I suppose we are not unlike Kirsty and feel no need to change the way things are.
Marriage just isn’t important to us.
That’s not to say I don’t support and love to see my family and friends get married. I’m as thrilled as the next person when someone gets a sparkly new engagement ring. I know how much it means to people and how happy they are.
It doesn’t mean that much to us.
You may know that I use my partners surname, that’s for no reason other than I like it better than my original one. We don’t pretend to be married, I’m still ‘Miss’, I just fancied a jazzier surname. You can do that you know, call yourself whatever you like.
And that is basically that.
Happily unmarried til death us do part.
