What is the role of marriage in an individual’s life , in modern times?
NateHowe is working on WhyAmIaMormon.com
It doesn’t really depend on how modern the times are – there will have always been and will always be good marriages and bad ones. There will always be those who take it seriously and join together in more than finances and living space, and those who choose to love each other madly will succeed as couples and grow together in ways they never could without marriage. On the other hand, many marry for convenience, status, money, or other reasons not rooted in true, selfless love, and they will either choose to stay married for better reasons than those that got them to the altar, or else the marriage will stagnate and eventually fail.
Marriage is designed to bring joy that no other relationship can bring, and thus those who do not enter into it will often downplay its importance. However, for those blessed people who enter into a marriage where they give their entire selves to each other, no skeptic can convince them that their union is unreal or unnecessary. It is sealed by the hand of God. I am blessed to be in such a marriage, and for us, modern people, that union makes all the difference.
marriage is wonderful alliance where you share all your being to a person whom either you love or you force yourself to love.Its actually wonderful to grow together.
I was in miserable love marriage,but this doesn’t happen always,I believe.Still I carry all romantic ideas of a marital life…may be i don’t have a partner.Marriage gives ownership of a person to you…who is there in thick n thin of your life.
Other than marriage,relationships are miserable.
Your question is thought provoking and timely,but i would love to know your point of view as well.
