Of course, Marriage still exists in our society & Country, According to Islam you must got married to fulfill your human needs, but now a days Love Marriages are more than Arranged ones in our country...but we don't said that the Marriage is Vanish from our society, some days ago I read some articles on newspaper & reads, In some European countries Marriage culture is almost vanishes & peoples just start living with anyone & move on whenever they want...I'm sorry but I don't think this is ok??? do you??? so guys I repeat my question once more "Can Marriage still exists on your society???" have a nice day...

Hi Tushavi, Even though all societies are based on the values of marriages, nearly in all countries where girls are not oppressed a lot, live in relationship is getting more and more. In India it has started in few big cities like Mumbai but still not liked upon and the couple doesn't get respect and girl is seen as cheap but they are on rise. it might be a negligible percentage and I feel if two people in love wish to stay together then they should be allowed.

So the secret to "marriage sanctification" is "gender discrimination"? Sounds fine with me (a white Germanic male)! How can we get 'gender discrimination' into wide operation?

Well the thing is in countries like India, pakistan where girls are not allowed to date in villages or small cities or even in most families in big cities, I think that is discrimination and thus they are forced in to arranged marriages, they want it or not

Marriage does still exist in the United States and there are a lot of benefits to being a married person, as I've been for eight and a half years now. However, I actually have to say that I think that there are some serious changes that need to be made in the way that benefits are provided to exclusive couples. I honestly believe that marriage is really a piece of paper but that all people that are in long-term committed relationships should be allowed to have civil benefits for their partner.

Unfortunately, marriage is no longer represented as the holy, revered institution it used to be here in my country. The outside world sees people marry and divorce like they shop for seasonal clothing, it seems. And it's true of some people, the minute things get rocky, they head for the lawyers. Hollywood actors are bad about that. However, that's our society that the media depicts. Nost people here hold marriage as sacred and truly work hard to maintain their marriages. People here still believe in marriage but the media makes it look as if this country is a den of sin. I myself am a believe in the sanctity of marriage. I was divorced 6 years ago because of a third person but I will always consider myself married and won't break my vows.

The world has become too liberated that marriage doesn't seem to be that important anymore. Well, for me, I still want to believe that the union of man and woman should be blessed by God.

I am glad to say that here in the Philippines marriage is still sacred, we value the person we marry and we never did marry one for the sake of fulfilling human needs, we marry that person out of love.. and it still exists.. i recently have a friend that got married, she and her bf was together for 10 years and they just got married and i know she was the happiest bride i saw last year..they got married last 12-12-12 and yes marriage and its sanctity can still prevail if one knows the value of respect and knows what love is.

Although divorce and separation are common nowadays, still the arrangement of marriage going on and acceptable in our society. Some countries allowed their people to live with different partners after they found out that a couple are not mean to each other. In our country Philippines, even divorce are not acceptable and not yet allowed in our law.
