Marriage obviously bring happiness to some, but not everyone. Single people are also happy. What is the point of getting married? Sure, you have a life partner. But, it has to be someone you know really well and are comfortable with. Arranged marriage fails miserably in this day and age. Only love marriages are successful, but not always. The divorce rate is so high then it was 10 or 15 years ago.
Please share your thoughts. Is there a point to marriage?
At a certain point in life, everyone will want to settle down.. to be with someone and that is the point of being married. When you know that you love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with that person, and you want to have kids with that person.. you want to get married! Yes, I agree it has to be someone you are comfortable with; someone who understands you and someone you know you can't live without..
Well, I don't think all the arranged marriages fail miserably; there are people I know.. with extremely successful arranged marriage.. So nope, it doesn't fail all the time, though I feel that love marriage is more suitable. I mean, you know that guy and you love him.. and you two decide to get married when you know that you can't live without each other. IDK why the divorce rates are so high though.. Maybe it is due to miscommunications. Everyone is so busy in their respective lives now days.. that they hardly get any time to spend together. That definitely creates misunderstandings. So, yeah.. that's my take on marriage! Yeah, there is definitely a point to marriage.. but only with the right person, and at the right moment!
