Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind.

I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.
