    Guess I lucked out. I was threatened to be stabbed if I bought an engagement ring.

    I'm expressing a personal opinion based on my experiences. Based on how I was raised marriage is to serve specific goals. You may disagree and that's fine. I can go more in depth about the what and why but like you correctly said this ain't no cookie cutter world

    Marriage, home ownership, rings and clutches are all overrated.

    Aight cool. The way you originally put it projects your opinion onto other people and says that you think they're wrong if they do otherwise.

    What you were really going for was more along the lines of "For ME marriage wasn't even a consideration until I bought a house...." That would have more closely represented the fact that it's your personal opinion based on your experience and how you were raised.


    EDIT: I don't know why I'm going on about this... I just see blanket statements and have to play devil's advocate I don't even necessarily disagree with your original statement, I just know it doesn't work for everyone.

    THAT would have more closely represented the fact that it's your personal opinion based on your experience and how you were raised.

    Saying "...marriage shouldn't even be a thought if YOU don't own a house..." is a statement that project YOUR opinion onto OTHER people and says that you think they're wrong if they do otherwise.
    Same thought occurred to me, but then we end up getting into a cultural discussion of how many sheep need to be in the dowry.

    only 1 sheep, more importantly, a cow and a bull, a litter of pigs, a dozen hens & rooster, and a Massey Ferguson tractor

    look at it as swapping a ring for an endless supply of bacon

    I can't even count the number of people who were appalled that I had bought a house with my then girlfriend (now wife), so yeah.
