Nothing is life is completely guaranteed to be rather easy or hard one hundred percent of the time. There are a lot of times where something that comes rather naturally for some people, can come less so for others. It is just one of those things that is completely dependent upon the person. Often times the maturity of the person and the fact that whether or not they think things through completely also plays a rather huge role in the situation to say the very least. Which does bring us back to having marriage and children. Some people are just not the marrying type. Some people just cannot handle being in that situation. The same thing with having children. Some people just are not fit to raise them. Yet those people who are not find themselves in a situation that is not up their ally. Therefore it is something that can in fact be extremely difficult to say the very least for sure. Of course many have little choice, they are forced to adapt and that can be hard. Some cannot just deal with that, and the fact that this can have a drastic impact on other people, that is the harshest reality of them all.

I would say that married life and having children isn't easy. It takes a lot of time and work in order to have a successful family life. I feel it's important that all family members including children work hard in order to benefit the family. And spending time together is so important. With the influence of media and all that goes on with it, I feel it demeans the family arrangement.

By the way getting I'm getting married this november and me and my fiance just attended a marriage encounter just this last weekend,anyway,going to your opinion, I know that married life is not easy,you must have a lot of sacrifices and adjustments especially once you start to have children, it will be very challenging to me when we start a married life on the second week of november.

its not easy having a married life especially in having a children. things changed a little bit when you become married and have children like you need to take care of the house, the children and cook food, etc. also, financial matters is also one of the big deal that is involved especially when you're having a child. because you need to buy some needs of your baby until it grows up. it's hard to build a family of your own if your financially unstable.

Yep ... it's really not easy to hold a marrige and have a child for us the yongs ... and i think everything is controversial and has two sides ... a man will always have some happiness after having a marrige and children ... and everything happend to us has its own meaning ... so , i just wanna say that you'd better be ready for these things and once you have a marrige or a child ,just be happy and enjoy the stuff will occur in life ! take care ~~

I honestly don't think that life is really to be very easy. I do know that married life isn't always easy. It does require work from both partners. Although I don't have kids of my own, I know people who do, and from what I've seen, it's really not always easy. Life is challenging, but it can certainly make things more interesting. I suspect that life would be boring if everything in life was easy and simple.

I find that nothing in life is easy. We must persist and continually work at it to make it successful. Having children and or being married is not easy but it should not be a difficult life. We must continually work at it to assure we are continually happy.

A lot of people I know tells me it isn't easy. So with that said, as early as now, I am trying prepare myself for a future married and family life. It is better to have a plan than just go out there and surprise and shock yourself of what you are going to get. I also have observed my elder brother during the time he was starting a family. It was really hard to have a child. A lot of finances are needed and also taking care of a baby is quite hard. So yes, a married life with children isn't a walk in a park.

It is not easy to be married. And it will be harder when you have a child or children. Your responsibilities will be greater, expenses will be bigger and time for yourself will be fewer. Though hard it is, I won't trade my husband and my son for anything. They are the source of my strength and happiness.

Married life is not easy especially now that this is a responsibility that comes with new challenges.It's great to have children and watching them grow day in day out.It's an accomplishment in your married life to take care of your children and help them to be somebody somewhere in our society.

Married life can be a gift and can be a nightmare. Marriage is a gamble. we never know how the future hold, we never know if we will have a happy and successful marriage or a failing and bad marriage. Marriage needs a lot of commitment and patience. Having children is a gift. It is troublesome to had kids, I have to admit it, but it is an enjoyable feelings. Because of our children, our life worth more. See all the singles people out there in their later ages. They had nothing to cherish about or to work for. all they do is trying to have funs by engaging in other activities that they think might cheer them up. But deep down inside, they are very lonely. So it is up to you how you look at your marriage. It is challeging but it is a gift that we should take.

Marriage is not a bed of roses. Since two individual who loves each other committed themselves to be together they have to bear with each others' shortcomings if there is any. And having children is part of being married. They are the spice of a married life, but rearing them won't come easy.
