Marriage is thought to be a blissful union of two people who love themselves. But as our readers revealed on Facebook, not everyone buys into the idea of marriage.
It would seem that not all people are eager to marry and settle down like we have been brought up to believe. YEN.com.gh asked people via our Facebook page "What is your worst fear when you think of getting married?".
Per the contributions we received, there are varied reason as expected. But some make for interesting reading.
Facebook user Afolashade Victoria, fears cheating and pregnancy in her marriage. Now, although one may agree that cheating is a fear most people hold, pregnancy would seem out of the ordinary for a concern.
Others like Clifford Tachie-Menson had a more harmless problem. But it would count as a critical one if you think about how room temperature tends to affect people differently.
The fear of raising children was abundant in the over 200 comments we received. This submission from Jeffato Kwame Blayz captured the problem more than anyone else.
Some of our contributors went for funnier reasons like this one from Kwame Trig hoping his wife is not ardent listener to controversial marriage counsellor George Lutterodt.
And finally, we had people who expressed fears that their marriages might not last their lifetimes. Mharmi Efya Jessica feared that a divorce might be on the cards if she ever got married.
In all, the various fears expressed are probably shared by millions of people across the world. This would only mean that marriage is not normal or as necessary as traditional society makes it seem.
