Never Getting Married stamp by locopuff Never Getting Married stamp by locopuff
I can't use stamps on this account, but I made one anyway so I could use it on my other, secret, fan tard account :3

I looked for something like this on DA, but I didn't find anything. I g uess that's my cue to make it :)

Everyone in my state/country is all freaked out about same sex marriages. I think legislating marriage is a bunch of horse shit in the first place.

So, here come this stamp.

Note: No need to fave or note me when using this stamp. Just spread the love :)

You have a relation ship and then you marry.... whats the difference? For me it feels a bit like that you have to be always together with someone. For me its like you lost your freedom a bit.
locopuff Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's up to whoever. The point is that the government has no business interfering with peoples' relationships.

Just a complete wast of money....
locopuff Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
tru dat.
Mystical-Moon-Spirit Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2011  Student Digital Artist
agreed, its just a piece of paper anyways, Yes?
locopuff Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not just, there's just a lot of legal crap tied up in it unnecessarily.
Montblanco Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I feel the same.
But I will admit I do sometimes dream of having that nice wedding.
Who hasn't though?
But that's just what it is a dream.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't dream of having it. I've seen enough to know they're nightmares :)
Montblanco Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Although the after math would be a nightmare, I guess a nice wedding lingers in the back of my head, but it's just a dream.
Reality has shown me how marriages usually end.
Maybe way back when they may have meant something, but now, it's all a sham.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't need one or want one. The ceremonies that they have these days are relatively recent developments, as are the rings.

In any case, marriage doesn't need to be something the government needs to get involved with. It has nothing to do with government.
Montblanco Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
The government has no place in marriage.
It should not between two people and the government.
It should be between the people doing it.
What business doesn't government have with it? They need to butt out and stay out of others business and relationships.
Don't they have other things to deal with? Obviously not...
Dametora Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
The reason I'd get married is because of all the legalities with it. I'd kind of like to be allowed to have a say in my partner's funeral.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can get durable power of attourney. You don't need to get married for that.
Dametora Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011
That's not the only thing marriage does, though. That was just an example, marriage has a lot of legalities tied to it.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What else would you need, aside from a will? It's not necessary to get the government involved, and expensive to get it uninvolved.

If any of that stuff is necessary, it shouldn't be something offered only to married people. Marriage should not be legislated.

Besides, when did I say I wanted a civil union?
Dametora Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2011
I'm just saying those are things that marriages get. Marriage IS a governmental institution.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, but it shouldn't be.

I just don't feel the need to get "married" by the term.. bind myself to one person as long as I live? Maybe, if they're out there. But legally... ehhh. Just not for me. :|
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Same here. I got no need for it, or telling the friggin' government about it if I do.
alfalfabet Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I love this stamp to the death.

My mum says she'll disown me if I ever get married.

locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's quite an ultimatum! XD
alfalfabet Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Indeed Cx
Well, I think marriage is stupid anyways.
locopuff Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I'm clearly not into it either :)
