Do your parents put pressure on you to get married? Welcome to the club that is most single people. Whether you’re in a relationship but just not married, or single as could be, your parents might make a lot of comments about “your future husband,” “when you’re married,” or “at your wedding.” They might also say things like, “I assume you won’t be needing a plus one for the event.” These comments can feel hurtful because it seems like your parents are pointing out something offensive–like the idea that you’re unlovable. And that can’t be true because THEY love you! So what’s this all about? Why do parents love to put the pressure on their kids to tie the knot? We will tell you. Here is why your parents want you to get married so badly.
