I'm at an age where all of my friends are settling down and getting married and having kids.
And every time I hear the news, "I'm getting married!"
Though I say, "Congratulations!"
All I can think is, "What's wrong with me?"
Why isn't anyone proposing to me?
I've never been proposed to before.
What if I die alone?
What if no one ever wants me in the end?
Maybe I should be a feminist and propose to my boyfriend.
No, it's weird.
I'm self-aware enough to know that this is like pressure to feel like I wanna get married comes from like fairy tale books, some Disney movies and reading the vampire trilogies when I was 13 years old.
But even though you know all of that, you can't help but feel like, "I wanna get married."
But I'm also self-aware enough to know that I don't want to get married because I wanna declare my eternal love for someone.
Now I just want to get married because I want the party.
I want a giant cake and an expensive dress and a whole day where it's all about me.
It's like your birthday but bigger.
One day, you are gonna get married and that means you get to get a really expensive nice dress, and all that your friends have to come and be nice to you
And give you gifts and then you'll have a big feast.
And you share this day with somebody but that person doesn't matter as much as you because this is your day.
And it's kind of weird because when you think about "actual marriage" that you're gonna settle down with someone and spend your entire life with them.
It seems really dumb to get married after only knowing someone for a couple of years, right?
You should spend a lot of time with that person so you know that you can tolerate each other.
I wanna kill you but I won't.
That's what love is baby.
And we put so much pressure on getting married.
You know like even as we get older if we're not married, we kind of think that person's like weird or not worthy of love.
And like I haven't fully decided like whether or not I want to get married cause you know there's that whole debate of like, "Whether or not monogamy is even feasible in today's world?"
Where we're gonna live to a hundred and twenty and people change all the time.
And we're getting more open to different views.
I haven't really like nailed down my thoughts on marriage.
Much less kids... that's like a whole other video I don't even want to get it into right now.
But I just kinda wanted to talk about it and see what people thought like, "If you got married really young, did you get divorced?"
Do you agree with marriage?
Is that what you're looking for?
Are you like me, and you just really want to get married cause the idea of it is really cool.
You can go to a really dope party where everyone just gets fucked up in your name.
I'm Anna Akana. Stay Awesome Gotham.
Although now I'm in Ant Man so I should probably be more supportive of the Marvel Universe
So stay marvelous...
I'm Anna Man.
I'm Anna Man, stay marvelous.
I'm getting married.
I know. You will never believe how he proposed. So we went to the Taj Mahal, and it was just amazing.
And I'm so excited for the wedding and I'm gonna have pigs in a blanket and thinking about maybe we are gonna have 3 kids.
We are gonna have 2 girls and a hermaphrodite, it's gonna be so great and their names are gonna be Billy, Jilly, and Lily.
