This article seems like it was written by an ideal feminist. I, too, believe in women’s rights and freedom of choice. However, why get married in the first place? If you are going to sleep in different bedrooms- let alone different houses- then why tie the knot? Why not take it to the full feminist ideology where you never get married in the first place? Isn’t that the true freedom of choice? Being able to walk away at any moment, but choosing to stay if you choose to stay?

Marriage is traditional and outdated, I agree. But that’s why I’m not married. If you do choose to get married, then you choose to make vows and you are choosing to go down that traditional road. And sleeping in separate bedrooms and separate houses only invites problems and gives room for other people to enter the marriage. I believe a marriage takes constant work, and there are sacrifices to be made. If you can’t bear to sleep in the same bed- let alone the same house- then there is clearly something that needs to be addressed and discussed.
