Why do girls crave for marriage?

The Cinderella Theory

Looking through hub pages at different hubs on improving and how to find ideas for my hubs.  I somehow ended up in the Gender and Relationships category when I see this answered question.

Before I go further, I know I am not supposed to get off topic but I would like to first commend Izetti and Bel Marshall for their excellence in writing and thank you Bel for the information regarding hubs.

Now, let me get back to the question at hand.  This is something that has been broiling inside me for sometime now, as a matter of fact, since the very minute I walked down the isle till the day I received my divorce papers.  I prefer to call it the Cinderella theory where somewhere, sometime, someones well-meaning parent, grandparent, relative or whomever read to their little Princess that fairytale story Cinderella and she meets her Prince then lives happily ever after.  We all know how the story goes and it is exactly what happened to me.   .--not the fairytale

I remember watching the movie at the cinema (that's how old I am) and just feeling elated and awestruck.

Please! Life is no fairytale!

So, somewhere in the back of our minds we little Princesses grow up believing, hoping, wishing, and wandering when Prince Charming will arrive...... then there he was, Right?  Wrong!  What happened?  A rude awakening.  A cold hard slap in the face.  Life happened!

The day my divorce was final and I received those papers in the mail.  I vowed then that if I ever had a daughter I would not ever do her the injustice of reading to them the story of Cinderella. 

You know, I think I am going to like hub pages after all.  In writing this hub, I have released something inside that I have been holding in for years and I have come to realize something.  The very best thing that ever happened to me came from my marriage and that is my son Wyatt, who is 14 now.  I have also been blessed with 2 daughters.  Savanna, who is 8 and Daisy, who is now three years old.  So, what is my realization?  That maybe fairytale do happen after all because in those three beautiful children all my dreams came true after all.

Thanks hub pages : )

      Writing can make you clear your head about things. It's great that way. But, I wouldn't put that much blame on poor Cinderella, or fairytales in general. I'm married and divorced too. I'd still get married again before I 'live with' a guy. I want him to show some level of commitment to sticking around. I'm over 40, I've got my life sorted out (more or less). I'm not going to start getting interested in, cooking for, cleaning up after some guy who just wants to screw around. The way I see it, he better have staying power cause I can take care of my own needs. What I want is someone I can actually be interested in.

      Hi neakin,

      A good share you got here. I bet girls are simply seeking to self-realize and fulfill life-long desires. Marriage is what you make of it. Thanks for sharing your experience. The Cinderella bit still appeals to young ones. Wonderful tale it was and continues to be.
