The last time you changed your mind about something important.

I don’t seem to change my mind about important things very often at all, but I think i can speak to one instance.

Marriage. At this point in my life, I am not sure if I believe in the necessity of marriage within a relationship. I have not changed my mind definitively one way or the other, but what has changed was the feeling thatĀ marriage was the end all be all, the eventual destination within any given relationship. That, I no longer believe. I have opened my mind to the many ways a relationship can look: exclusiv vs. open, marriage vs. partnership, one partner vs. poly, children vs. no children, etc. I think that to say that marriage looks one way and is the right way/thing for every couple to ever exist is narrow-minded thinking. To be in relationship is difficult enough, but to put a set of labels/rules/confines around that said relationship without investigating whether it is right for both of you is not a smart decision.
