What are some reasons to refrain from getting married?

Cupid’s Advice:

Marriage is a big commitment and needs to be carefully evaluated, because sometimes things don’t work out.  Here are some reasons to refrain from tying the knot:

1. Timing: People can change from when you first get engaged to when you take the infamous walk down the aisle.  If you notice you and your fiance becoming distant, then it may be time to part ways.

2. Sparks fade:  Sometimes you and your lover simply don’t click anymore like you used to, and it could be caused by factors such as stress.  As a couple, you should still feel a true spark even on your bad days.

3. Lost yourself:  Like Simon Cowell, sometimes you lose who you are and where you want to be in a relationship.  It can be difficult to be married to someone when you don’t love yourself.
