You`ve just laid down my rationale for dismissing all kinds of commitment ceremonies.
In the end, when all is said and done, what does all the symbolism, the ring, the PDA, the label, the legal bind, and the public approval of your sexual contact really
What changes? What is this final destination, this idyll, that committed relationships supposedly progress toward? Where is this promised land of commitment? And how is it any different from a roommate who visits when he can?
But, I shan`t get in your way. I think it`s important that most people value symbolism. It`s just that I am a awfully practical pain-in-the-ass.
