From movies, cartoons, TV shows, and magazines, there seems to be tons of emphasis on girls living out some princess fairy-tale wedding. If that's your thing, I say go for it. But too often ladies who aren't concerned with tying the knot end up dealing with a lot of side-eye and disapproving comments from friends and family. If you ask me, that's pretty crappy. So here are three spot-on responses for anyone who has ever felt pressure to stress over "the big day."
1. I've got other stuff to dream about.
2. I don't have a checklist.
In her "TODAY" interview, Jennifer Aniston shared a few words on the obsession over whether she'll get married and have kids in the near future.
"It is such an issue of, like, 'Are you married yet? Are you going to have your babies yet?' It's just constant. It's like, I don't know! I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and if they're not checked, then I've failed some part of my feminism or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child."
3. Unmarried love is still legitimate love.
