Have you thought of it? why do people get married? when they end up fighting and arguing and also in divorce. Is it not better to be single, frinds, and don't poke noses in each others business?

People marry for many reasons the most important being Companionship and procreation. Love is the glue that keeps them together and if the glue dries or runs out the divorce is the second option. If two people are really and deeply in love they dont think of divorce or infidelity, they try to workout their differences. It is normal to urgue in a healthy marriage. Being single or marry depends on individuals and their goals in life. Staying single has many temptations and some end up living carelessly because they dont have anyone dependent on them.

Marriage is a social habit, carefully cultivated for the benefit of men. Women have nothing to gain out of it. Why do people marry? Well, I guess it is because they have no alternative; they do not know what else to do with their lives. Give them a better alternative and they might go in for that. Right now, they will get married. ;) Cheers and happy Mylotting

when you marry you can both start family, you can both love each other, and some that cares about you, otherwise you will just spend money on people you dont know proper all your life. i think it will be very boring.

yeah, i think about it most of the time. My parents have ben married for 28 years now and i keep wondering why they have managed to become bonded up to this point. But the truth is when you find that person you are destined to be with, there is nothing that can stop you from being together for so long. That is what i have found from my parents.

The thing is, I think a lot of people get married because they feel that it's what is expected of them. Family, friends, society at large seem to really want to see people married off. But if it isn't for you, it just isn't. I can't imagine myself married with kids and can't imagine who this lifestyle is hurting. Somehow, though, married people see this as a personal affront to their choice to marry. What is that about?
