The topic of weddings came up on another board I'm on, and it piqued my curiousity. What are the thoughts of other INTJ women on getting married? Particularly the wedding?
When my ex-husband and I married, I absolutely did not want a wedding ceremony. I wanted to elope. I had never had any particular fantasies about the white dress or the princess thing. Mostly though, I didn't see the point in standing up in front of a bunch of people spilling my guts about how I felt for my fiance. I found the entire concept of making a public spectacle of an incredibly personal decision to be very uncomfortable.
I was overruled on the eloping option and in the end the ceremony was extremely simple: less than 20 guests, done in the courthouse, reception at a local pub. Low-key as it was, the entire day was still torture for me. The best part was when it ended.
So tell me, INTJ gals, what are your thoughts on the wedding ceremony? Do/Did any of you feel the same way? Is this an INTJ thing or just my inner tomboy showing?
Guys can answer this too. I'm just curious what the women have to say because girls are practically brainwashed into wanting the giant wedding ceremony from birth.
