Will You Marry Someone You Don't Love?

Philippines
October 9, 2019 3:54am CST
I asked the above question in relation to the so-called "marriage for convenience" --- some people marry not out of love but for money, for social status, for political reasons, for economic security and other host of reason or combination of reasons. Will you follow your heart or your mind as to what you can get from such marriage?

I have married the man I loved... but sometimes love comes later in the marriage and sometimes love disappears after marriage... so love is one of the major factor that decides marriage but may be it isn't just the one. Marriage works on number of other grounds and when people decide to get married lot of other things are also put under consideration....

Yes of course there are so many factors to consider before you tie the knot.

you are really talking from experience, I can feel it, but if other things are in or out, love I think should be final.

This depends on any given situation. It's mind versus heart but I think one would look at the brighter side and besides love can be learned although everyone has all the rights and freedom to choose.

Though I am already married but I think I can comment here. Not everyone would have found someone to fall in love with , so I am not sure how far would the 'follow your heart ' side should be favored. I dont even find it wrong to marry for social security,social status ... I feel - what is wrong in thinking about it before marriage . Anyone who thinks his life to be secured may take a decision of such a kind , like checking his/her to be spouse` profile and status... rather if someone just ties the knot without caring for his fiance job/money then it would be unjust to their kids as the whole family may face circumstances due to insufficient money. "marriage for convenience" - But I have seen people would overdo it.There are people who would expect dowry or they may overexpect from their grooms ... I would call it greed. I think this is something to be called as 'marriage for convenience'.
