Shoes, Cars & Marriage1
“…shoes seem to be more permanent than marriage nowadays.” Tajuana Crayton
When should you purchase new shoes or cars? When should you get married? When should you leave the shoes or cars at the store? When should you stop dating someone? When should you return your shoes or cars? When should you get a divorce?
Trying on shoes in a store may sometimes be similar to test driving a car, you know for sure if the shoes don’t fit just as you know for sure if a certain car isn’t right for you when you test drive. Sometimes there’s the instant you’re not 100% sure on the shoes or the car and consider returning them after they’ve been worn.
Out of a perceived need to have the shoes and/or car immediately you may make the initial purchase figuring they’re “good enough” only to find out when you put the product to “your” real world use they really don’t fit. Unfortunately, people sometimes do this in their romantic relationships and prematurely get married thinking the person they married is “good enough.” That’s not fair to you nor the other person. Don’t marry because the person is “good enough” marry because…
My disclaimer, I’ve yet to be married.
