Would You Marry You?


On a lighter note, I've been pondering something for a long time and I decided to put this out there for the blogosphere. I wondered... if I could step inside of a woman's body, would I marry someone like me? So, I'm putting this question out there to all of you. If you took all of your positive and negative qualities and put them into someone else, could you marry that person? In other words, would you marry you ? You know how you are better than anyone!

This forum is now open for comments. If you're not yet married or even if you're divorced and thinking of getting married again, this is a good exercise to have with yourself. It's kinda like putting yourself in the other person's shoes for a minute. Would you marry you?

Of courese I would. But we would have to work out my credit first.

Keith said...

@Southern Gal- LMAO at you!

Strongblkwmn said...

Hell yes i'd marry myself! I'm a good catch.

Seriously, I really would. I put my all into my relationship and it has lasted 25 years. My husband and I will be married 20 years this coming January.

Toni said...

I'm going out on a limb and be the different one here. I wouldn't marry me right now..I've got too
many issues.

Grover Da Playboy said...

I wouldn't marry me either, I'm involved with too many honeys right now and no woman would go for that.

Opinionated Diva said...

lmao @ Southern

Lets see...I've got great credit, I can cook, I've a decent job and education - with those surface qualities alone...YES, I would marry someone like me.

BUT...

I have no patience...I'd need someone who is patient...who has nerves of steel.

So...no I probably wouldn't marry me - I'd make us both crazy! lol

Hey Brother!!


Great question....I'd say "Yes" I would marry me....maybe not 5 years ago...but the person I've grown to be and still growing to be is definitely wifey material. I love the Lord enough to submit to my husband because the word says to do so....I love the Lord enough take self out of the equation so that I become "we" in a marriage....I love the Lord enough to seek him for directions on being a help meet....I love the Lord enough to pray for my family and be obedient to God's word...YEP...I'd marry me in a heatbeat...matterfact...I can't marry a man who doesn't love the Lord enough to love me as Christ loves the church!

LadyLee said...

Would I marry me? Maybe in time, after I've had time to witness more personal growth and more goals accomplished.

I think we all think we're one hell of a catch... as we should. But I think it is important to recognize at the same time that we all have our "isshas" and need someone who can deal with that, and help us heal...

A Go Bytch said...

yes indeed I would marry me. If my mom didn't teach me anything else it was how to treat a man. The problem is men don't know how to treat a woman that knows how to treat a man...LOL

I remember getting my daddy's slippers and taking his shoes off after work.. it was my pleasure!

Those were the days!

Dione said...

Great post my dear Kappa brother! Might have to do a spin off on that one!
Anywho... thinking about the qualities (good and bad) that I possess, I'd say yes, I'd marry me. Oh but wait, then I'd have to get up the patience to deal with the stuff that hubby would do that would get on my nerves... ok, my answer is still yes...

Christoph Jenkins said...

Nice blog, greek!

Keith said...

@Chris-Hey Brother,Thanks for stopping by.

Sunflower said...

I'd marry myself..I have a lot of great qualities...One of them being that I am modest.-lololol.

Mister Frisby said...

I'd be a fool not to marry myself-lololol

Keith said...

I can't believe that this post struck such a nerve with people.

Don said...

I would marry me, but I'd understand that I am not @ a point where I will soon be. I think I have a good heart, so that's something not found everyday.

Good thought-provoking post.

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

Yes, I would marry me. I think I might be dating me, but that is not what you asked so I will stay on topic. I always have asked myself questions like that to keep me honest, but mine are more along the line of would I be friends with me, would I hire me. I never have thought so much about marriage. I definitely know my flaws and strengths but think I’m a pretty worthwhile chick, so yeah I’d marry me and I’d be me a nice fat rock to commemorate my-our- the love.

Stacye said...

On the floor LOL @ southerngal. I love me and I believe that at this point in my life I would be a blessing to someone else. So, YES I would definately marry me. God is working all kinks out...we are all a work in progress and God fearing people will work at it together. Great Post Keith! First time here and I will be back!
