mojitomint44:  I say, do what you want – if you want a wedding and gifts and a registry, then so be it!

My Fiance and I have been together for quite some time (10 years this Friday) & honestly the only reason we decided to have a wedding was so that we could have a party. We are already committed to each other, have been, and he hates the institution of marriage but we are getting married so that we can have a big party to celebrate our relationship. 

If you want to have a party to celebrate your life and being single…then do it! It shouldn’t matter & those who love and support you will be there. I would go to something like this if I had a friend who wanted to do something like this because I am an open minded individual who is accepting of everyone and their lifestyles. You do you, bee!

mojitomint44:  So you want to get presents for being true to yourself and vowing you will love yourself? Those things are pretty normal. (In most cases you even need to do that in order for someone else to fall in love with you.) A self marriage makes no sense to me. By all means do what makes you happy but I think there is no point.

Personally I feel like the OP wasn’t serious if she changed her mind that quick. Once gifts and a ceremony were involved I thought it was a bit loco but at the end of the day do what makes you happy and don’t listen to internet strangers and their beliefs. I did so many things in my wedding that people on here shun and I had NOT one issue. As long as the real people in your life are willing to attend and support you go ahead!

mojitomint44:  Hi, I want to give you some stories to make you feel better. I had a family friend that was single for years, met a guy (good looking attorney) at 35, got engaged 6 months later, married at 36, had a baby at 37 and is living a great life. 

I know another woman that married a doctor at 35, is now 40 with two sons. 

I have a relative that was single until 39, married a millionaire at age 40.

mojitomint44:  Not sure if this was ask before, but does this mean you never have sex with anoher person again? Would that be cheating on yourself if you do? Honest question.
