Did you know why men are afraid of marriage?

19 December 2021, Anna
Did you know why men are afraid of marriage?

Fear of seeing passion die out, fear of losing one's freedom, fear of losing one's space… I still have a doubt: frankly, aren't there more things that we gain in getting married?

When you are in love and find that your darling is the perfect man, should the fear of getting married disappear? And: why in the majority of couples, is it the man who takes too long to make this decision? While more than one girl wonders how to make her boyfriend ask her to marry her, the man in question wonders how to make her fiancée not ask her to marry… The man fears to be disappointed, is afraid of not being up to the task, has the impression of getting a bit old ... Thinking about it, these are the 4 reasons that could push a man not to want to get married:

Previous experiences

Everyone loves in their own way but it is clear that previous love stories can define the desire to embark on a new relationship. No matter how much you show your fiancé that you are not like the others, if your darling has a damaged heart, it is likely that he does not have a mad desire to get married, for fear of suffering again.

Fear of losing his “freedom”

In reality, men are not afraid of engagement, they are afraid of losing their freedom. Fear of no longer being independent and losing the friendships made. Not to mention relationships with other women. Come on, let's face it: the majority of us are jealous and we don't like - at all - that our fiancé is another girl's “best friend and confidant.”

Fear that the passion will die out

With this statement, we do not help much those who are already married or living in a couple! No question of generalizing and saying that cohabitation destroys passion, does it? Each couple knows how to manage their time. I remember being surprised by my friend Cristina who told me that she has a separate room on a daily basis and that only from time to time she sleeps with her man. And yet, don't we say that sleeping with the person we love is a privilege? Some people think that routine is boring.

Fear of losing private space

How many couples keep their space after marriage? And I'm not just talking about the place in the bed! Not only do we invade the drawers and place all of our beauty products in the bathroom, but we also take up other people's free time. Does marriage give us the right to do so?

Who knows, maybe one day it will be common for spouses to sleep in separate rooms? If there is one thing that has changed in romantic relationships in recent years, it is the seduction phase. It is more and more “express style.” My grandmother used to say "I saw a boy for 10 years" and then they got married. Before couples took the time to walk around, chat, simply get to know each other. Today we only bet on our Facebook status. No doubt, this is not ideal as a basis for getting married.

Fear of seeing passion die out, fear of losing one's freedom, fear of losing one's space… I still have a doubt: frankly, aren't there more things that we gain in getting married?
