How I see Marriage
Marriage is a social union between people those who decide to live together for their life. It is usually a recognition for living of two within the society. It is union of two in a heavenly bliss relationship. It is said that marriages are made in heaven and celebrated on earth. This is also a popular belief which is true to extent.As marriage is a special bond shared between two souls those who unite together together to become one soul. It is bond between two to be together for life.It is the physical, mental and spiritual union of two souls. It brings significant stability and substance to human relationships which is otherwise incomplete. The union of marriage is highly recommendable by society as it will help in growth of country.
Marriage is between families and between lot of people.The concept remains same but the way the ceremonies are performed varies differently according to different cuture, custom etc. The marriages are not in common practice in western society. Marriages are just considered as social phenomena for few whereas, it is blessing of almighty for some. The key to successful marriage is love, understanding, mutual respect, trust, commitment and togetherness. While many couples are able to find all the key ingredients in their marital relationships, others find one element or more lacking in their bond. This gives rise to consequences that are not always expected, or desired. This is a reason why a number of couples face adverse consequences, like divorce. One of the visible reasons why married couples find marriage as an intimidating bond is that they face a number of problems, while being in the relationship. Lack of trust, mutual respect, missing of love and understanding in relation which thus contribute to mis-understanding.
Marriage for Women:
Marriage for women is a process of giving oneself and surrendering oneself for the husband. In Indian custom for few “pati parmeshwar”is a common phrase used in Indian society. The husband is god for few and they worship them. On contrary,marriage is mystery for few?
Marriage for Men:
Men are in no hurry to commit to long term relationships with women. Man’s thing to experiment with different sexual partners until well into their forties before settling down in a committed relationship; but it’s more complicated than that. Marriages for men is a social pressure of surrounding around them. Mens consider marriage as a part of life. Whereas, few consider Marriage as heart of life.
Marriage is un-definable relation. But I have tried to express my view on the given topic.
