- A South African Twitter user recently headed to the app to ask Twitter users why they were so afraid of marriage
- The post blew up as hundreds of locals shared why they were afraid to take the plunge and tie the knot
- Some of the reasons were that people hated being tied down, did not want the responsibility of a stable partner and were afraid of being mistreated
It is not news that many people are completely terrified of settling down and getting married. A recent tweet that was made by a curious South African Twitter user not only proved that many people are reluctant to tie the knot, it also gives insight into why that is.
"What scares you about getting married? Be honest," asked @Colourphuza.
Soon the post received over 500 reactions from South Africans who were more than willing to share why they did not think that marriage was a good idea. Read a few of their interesting thoughts below:
"Marrying someone who does not enjoy my company. Who'd rather do other things than spend time with you and talk to you. Marrying someone whose values are very different from mine. And only realising that later when they start changing."
"Combos are just not communicating, whoever designed this marriage thing died a long time ago. The system needs to be updated."
"Waking up one day and realising that we no longer make each other happy, we just coexisting."
"Divorcing, I can't afford to put my kids through that trauma."
