What constitutes a goal is completely subjective.
For example, you say that your goal is to visit another country. This is more easily done by someone who is rich with a lot of free time as opposed to someone that is constantly working and is middle class. Would that make it okay for someone who constantly travels to mock the hard worker's own ambition of wanting to see other parts of the world just because he (the rich person) may do it frequently or look upon it as not much of a big deal? Somewhat apples to oranges I guess but the principle still applies.

Just because a lot of people have gotten married and have had children etc. doesn't make it any less admirable of a goal.

Anything that takes effort is a goal. "My goal is to tell people what goals are all about."
If you want to say that romance isn't a significant life goal, I'd still have to disagree on the grounds that romance is very important to some, perhaps even more important than travel and aspiration.

Marriage isn't as easy as it sounds, nor are kids. It takes a lot of compromises, responsibility and continuous investment. So while marriage itself may be simple to obtain, it is never a simple matter to maintain.

Marriages are easily obtainable, but only when you don't factor in the health and longevity of a relationship. Obtaining a marriage with someone is simple, but obtaining a relationship with the right someone can be very difficult.



True. Just look at the divorce rates among Americans these days.

Yes you were being an ass. You were pretty stating that his goals are not goals at all. Like I can tell you will never get into space. Based on physical and mental standards.

To question on this forum. If you want it to be your goal. For me it is yes. For all I am looking for in female companion is someone who challenges, makes me better, and makes me happy.

Who is someone to question another̀s goals?






Unless of course said goals are something that could poorly effect others.

It's an extension of an instinct-driven plot to reproduce. It's not so much a possible goal, as it is a damned-near inescapable manipulation. The pull is stronger in some than others, is all.

Why not both? I have grandiose goals and still wanna get married.
And I still think getting married is harder, literally think my grandiose goals will be easier. I hate social anxiety.

We got into an argument because I don't consider that lovey dovey stuff an actual goal because I see marriages as easily obtainable (if you're financially sound or physically attractive) and have more problems than provide a solution.

We cool now, but I just have to ask, considering the circumstances, was I the asshole in that conversation?


I have found his goals to be far more important to a satisfying life than money or travel. No amount of money will buy you a happy marriage or a loving family.

I used to have a fairly decent disposable income, and traveled the world. I have no regrets giving it up for my family. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my wife and kids.

I see where you're coming from but I think everyone is allowed to have any goal they want to achieve no matter how stupid or not stupid it may sound

Yeah, you were a bit of a jerk.

That sounds like a perfectly fine ambition to me. We don't all have to want to be astronauts.

Why not? Anything can be a goal. One of mine is to become a cat. Are you gonna tell me that's not a goal too?

What... Really?!? You have to joking, right? How can that be a goal? Now, becoming a dog is an actual goal.

I could see how he got mad, your undermining his goals... like your judging his goals. goal is something personal for oneself. so for some getting married and having a family or finding romance is a goal.
