Why do people really get married?

There are a number of reasons why anyone would find it fit to marry or even get married.But to some extent,it's obvious that the majority look forward to having children.So sometime back we were treated to some shocking news here in my country of a young man who chopped off the hands of his wife for failing to sire children for the seven years that they had been married. But even as there reports that this man had issues with fertility,he still went ahead to squarely blaming his wife for their childlessness.This is one incident that brings out what children really mean in a marriage.Then something else, there are couples out there who are without children and are still happy.I think children in a marriage is a plus and this may possibly mean a happier couple. Then the society ought to change as far as children in a marriage are concerned and so keeping off pressure on any childless couple.

Such a narrow minded person that husband was..who cut his wife's hand.. So bad.. Here, having marriage is like being settled.. So someone is there to look after you when you get old. Yes, children are also the concern. But we don't push it out

Goodness! Even here having kids after marriage is become a thing of compulsion. If a couple have been married for even a year...people start telling them they should start planing a family...and many DO...in the pressure of society.
