Welcome To Unhappily Never After
Every little girl has read at least one fairy tale that ends with the phrase, and they both lived Happily Ever After. The story is usually the same. Girl meets boy. Boy, who just happens to be a prince, saves girl and they get married. After the ceremonies and the pomp and circumstance, they go home and it is implied or meant for us girls to assume that their marriage is perfect. Ding, ding, ding! There it is. The seed has been planted and seared into a little girl’s brain- getting married means I will live a happy life. Well, what about we impressionable young girls who read these stories and believe that if we do not get married, we should be unhappy. Hence the reason why so many of us are so anxious to get to that alter.
