These days, the weather has been cold, wet and foggy. Just perfect to stay inside, curl up on the couch and to be extra lazy together.
Therefore isn’t it just the perfect time for my guest post being posted on Speaking of China these days as I am too phlegmatic to write anything?
Here is a little teaser for you:
|Why We Are Not Married (Yet)
I am tired. Tired of all the ‘Why are you not married? Do you want to break up?” questions, or the pronouncements of ‘Oh, he is ONLY your boyfriend!’ Tired of explaining our allegedly ‘not-so-serious’ relationship and why we are not married (yet). While I think that this little detail of saying ‘I do!’ is not of any concern to anyone, I do not want to see others belittle our relationship just because we did not seal our relationship in front of a random registrar (yet). Is our relationship not worth as much as that of someone who is already married? This could be due to varied reasons, liberal worldviews, no bureaucratic obstacles, or bad role models. Beyond doubt, not being married does not make our relationship less worthy, and to answer all of those questions: we do not plan to break up. Not now, and also not in the future. Why would we date and live together for more than seven years now? Mr. Panda and I have our reasons to shack up.
Mysterious and thrilling, isn’t it? You can find the rest here.
