Love and marriage, they go together like a horse and a carriage. How many times how you heard that saying?
It’s easy to think that Pisces and marriage go together like a horse and a carriage because Pisces signs tend to be highly emotional. While it’s true that they do tend to navigate the world in their relationships based on emotions, there’s more to the picture than just emotional depth.
While the Pisces’ emotional depth is a very big factor in discussing issues regarding Pisces and marriage, it’s too easy to exaggerate that point. It’s too easy to just pigeonhole Pisces and look at all issues of Pisces and marriage through that particular lens.
There’s more going on than just emotional depth. It plays a big role absolutely, but it’s not the only game in town. Keep the following discussion in mind when thinking about Pisces and marriage issues in the coming months.
Pisces Emotional Depth in Making a Decision
The interesting thing about the Pisces is that they can commit. However, they go through some weird process to get that commitment. This is why there is really no hard-and-fast rule regarding Pisces men and commitment.
Let’s face it. If you’re talking about Pisces and marriage, you’re talking essentially about Pisces and long-term commitment. Marriage after all is all about commitment. You commit to somebody even if that person becomes poor.
You commit to that person even if that person becomes seriously sick. You commit to that person even if that person becomes crazy. In other words, you commit to continue to love that person regardless of what that person goes through.
Marriage is no joke. Marriage is all about commitment and most importantly it’s all about placing your loyalty onto a third party.
You have to remember that when you are in a real relationship, there are really three parties there; you, the other person, and your relationship.
Your relationship has needs outside of your own needs. You may not feel like getting up in the morning to get your wife a cool refreshing glass of water, but because you love your relationship, you do it.
The problem with basing everything on love and how you feel is that feelings go away. When you get older, you change. When you have children, you change. When you switch job or you have to move to another city, you change.
Life is full of change. By committing to that third party, however, you are signing on to a long-term commitment to producing the same behavior regardless of what happens to the outside world. This is really heavy stuff.
This is why questions of Pisces and marriage and emotional depth really take a different complexion when looked at this perspective, especially when we are talking about someone born on the Pisces Aries cusp.
You have to understand that when Pisces make a decision regarding long-term commitments, a lot of emotions go into the process, and this emotion is not really so much filtering the person or weighing the different pros and cons and reasons.
This is not an exercise based on reason after all. There’s nothing rational about it, it’s all emotional. Consider it awkward and weird for most people, but for the Pisces and other emotional signs of the horoscope, this makes all the sense in the world.
The reality is that there are two different kinds of reasons. There’s a reason with your mind and there’s a reason with your heart.
The Pisces is definitely in the latter camp. They go through this very interesting process, and that’s why issues of Pisces and marriage tend to become very confusing because there are some Pisces men who tend to commit very early.
Then, there are others that take a long time to commit. The reason for that, keep reading below.
The Pisces Analysis Paralysis
I’ve talked about the analysis paralysis problem quite a bit on this blog. Most notably, I’ve talked about it in the context of the Libra.
The Libra is of course a pair of scales and what do scales do? Scales weigh. Scales balance. Scales are always considering of setting one weight with another.
This is why they are hanging up in the air, and they often have a tough time getting off the fence. They have a tough time making a decision.
The Pisces can be like that as well but from a completely different perspective.
The avenue that the Pisces takes when it comes to making big decisions is the avenue of emotions. As you probably already know, this can lead to some serious issues because if you need to make decisions usually you need to use your head, you need to use logic and reason.
Well, that’s not the Pisces’ way.
The typical Pisces man and woman don’t make decisions that way. It’s very easy for them to make impulsive decisions.
It’s very easy for them to get taken in by the moment. They get caught, and they end up making decisions that may haunt them for the rest of their lives. That’s how the Pisces roll.
So, why discuss the Pisces analysis paralysis?
Pisces signs are not stupid.
They know that that’s how they feel. That’s how they reason things out. They often try to overcompensate by going through an analytical loop.
The problem with this is they end up chasing their tails. It’s one of those situations where you keep gathering information, you keep trying to weigh them through your emotions, and you try to think about them emotionally, but the more information you get the more confused and lost you are.
As a result, many Pisces men and women take a long time to fully commit, especially if we are talking about a love match between a Pisces and a Scorpio sign.
It’s not unusual for a Pisces to stay in a long-term live-in relationship without signing on the dotted line. In many cases, when they do finally decide to get married, the marriage doesn’t last because they’ve really spent all their emotional fuel when they were living together.
In other words, the couple became another victim of the Pisces analysis paralysis.
This is one key factor in issues of Pisces and marriage. You have to pay attention to the Pisces analysis paralysis.
You have to really tease it out of your Pisces partner and fully analyze that person because if you read your Pisces partner wrong, you might think you’re in a relationship, however, the person is basically just on a holding pattern.
If you decide at some future date that you would like to get married, good luck with that because this person is basically stuck in the Pisces analysis paralysis and the only person that can help that person break out of that is that person. The person has to decide.
The Different Levels of Pisces Emotional Maturity
To understand all the factors discussed above, you really have to look at how emotionally mature the Pisces in your life is.
Pisces don’t really follow a straight line when it comes to emotional maturity. They can start out as being emotionally adept. You have to remember these people are very big on emotional authenticity. However, due to many different circumstances in life and just chance, they can take several steps back. It’s not uncommon for Pisces to mature backwards.
There are many different factors that explain this but when it comes to Pisces and marriage, this is a very important issue.
You have to be clear with your Pisces partner that you want to get married. You have to say that early in the relationship otherwise your relationship might enter this holding pattern and it’s not going to go anywhere in terms of a long-term commitment.
