I never been married, and also my mum have not been married for years. I think marriage is not a necessary part in my life, people get divorced very easily nowadays. I can live alone very well without married someone.

No, I would not. I guess the traditional concept of marriage just not important to me. But maybe I would not say no completely. Actually, I have lots of friends around me who get married very quick after fall in love, but I do not think all of them are serious couple.

Marriage, to me, is an important institution for me, it is a project between two person, people have to decide to accept each other into their life, because everyone does not an angel, everyone got mistakes. I am a muslin, we always focus on manage to stay together, and forgive each other.

I don’t know, maybe, if the right person show up, then I would definitely say yes. If I am be with the right person, I will see the point of marriage. But talking to divorce, I think it have become more acceptable than decades before.

No, absolutely not. I have been engaged twice, call it off twice, and don’t believe marriage. Do you want to know the reason? It is a measure used by society to control us. I don’t think it is easy to divorce by the way, it is so hard, and breaking up is such a complicated thing to deal with.
