If One Tells
If one tells: I will never marry,
one is engaged in fatal love and never wants to cheat anyone.
If one tells: I will marry if I get a good guy,
one is never engaged and nurtures committed spirit.
If one tells: I can marry anyone,
one wants to enjoy the senses and
can create problem at any moment in married life.
If one tells: I don't believe in marriage,
one's character may be worse
but approach is modernist.
If one tells: marriage is not for all,
one is a detached egoist.
If one tells: marriage is everything,
one is destroying one's career.
