Marriage Might Not Be For Everyone, But These 3 Zodiac Signs Know It’s Def Not For Them

Originally Published: 

Have you always believed that one day you would definitely get married? Or does even just the idea of tying yourself to one person for the rest of your life make you feel a little claustrophobic? If your reaction is closer to the latter, then chances are you're one of the zodiac signs who don’t see marriage in their future.

While every sign in the zodiac is totally capable of settling down and getting married, for some taking that leap is a little bit more of a challenge. For them to want to the tie the knot takes finding the exact right person at the perfect time. That's because these are the signs that tend to value freedom over security and who want the excitement of new experiences rather than the comfort of routine. Or they may just simply be nonconformists who don't see the point in getting a marriage certificate. That's just not what validates their relationships. Honestly, there is nothing wrong with preferring not to get married, so long as your partner is aware of the situation, too.

So, if all of this is really resonating, then there is a good chance you're either one of — or are dating one of — the following astrological signs who are in no rush to walk down the aisle.

Gemini (May 21—June 20)

For Gemini, much of what makes dating fun is the chase itself. Those early stages of getting to know someone new, the intimate conversations, the flirting, the cat and mouse of playing it cool, and the seduction are just magic to this sign. After that, things get a little dicey for Gemini, who craves new experiences and challenges. That's not to say they can't be great in a relationship, especially when this Mercury-ruled — the planet associated with communication — sign finds someone with whom they can banter and laugh with. However, they tend to stall out when things really start to get serious because they fear that, once they get married, the relationship will fall into routine and they will get bored, and the magic of their connection will get lost in the process.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22—Dec. 21)

Sagittarius is a restless sign. They are constantly on the lookout for the next exciting thing. They want to be free to follow their heart and desires wherever they roam, which, as you can imagine, is not exactly a ideal mindset for getting married. That's why Sagittarius tends to struggled with commitment in general and they avoid routine in every way they possibly can. For this fire sign, their fickle hearts mean relationships tend to burn bright while the last but burn out quickly, as soon as things start getting a little too serious for comfort. For this sign to finally feel like they are ready to commit, they need a partner who truly understands their wanderlust and is comfortable giving them all the space they need in order to want to settle down. After all, there is no forcing a Sag to do anything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20—Feb. 18)

Getting an air sign like Aquarius to settle down and get married can sometimes feel like trying to catch the wind with your hands — ya just can’t. That's because this highly independent sign is often perfectly content being single. Like Sagittarius, this sign really prizes its freedom above all else, and, to be honest, they aren’t all that comfortable with emotional intimacy. They need a lot of time to fully open up to someone, so if marriage is in the cards, it's going to be pretty far down the road. Besides, for a unique and nonconformist sign like Aquarius, the idea of needing a marriage certificate seems a bit absurd. They are not defined by paperwork, so why should their relationship be?

Marriage is simply not for everyone. For some folks, being single is the way they live their best lives. Or maybe a commitment ceremony over something more official is a better fit. The key here is to do what feels right for you and your partner. If that includes getting hitched, great! And if that's simply not in the stars for you, that’s OK, too.
