Yes there are reasons for women to still marry these days.
First and foremost, is because it is God's plan. The institute of marriage was created and ordained by God. Unfortunately, these days everyone wants to play house. No real committment. Just live together. No work involved. I do not agree with 90abbykorinnelee on one point, Its more than a piece a paper. Marriage is a ministry and hard work.
Second, God's model for family is a husband and wife raising children.
Third sex. God only ordains sex in marriage.
Fourth, to share our love. Unfortunately, most don't know what true love consists of. "God so loved the world that he GAVE his only begooten Son" to die for us/our sins, "while we were yet sinners". This is the kind of love he wants us to share in our marriages. Love is about others. Not about self.
Marriage can be a beautiful thing. Hollywood and society makes such a mockery of it these days that no one takes it as serious as they should. Yes, women are more self-sufficient these days, but that shouldn't be the only reason to marry. Its a coming together and working to become "one flesh" as the word proclaims. There is a verse in the bible Philipians 2:3-4 that states, "...but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others." If husbands and wives applied this scripture to their marriage what a powerful union it could create.
I'm not saying its easy, cause it isn't. I'm saying that if more effort was given instread of running for divorce at the first sign of trouble, maybe we could bring down those divorce statistics. I agree with 90abbykorinnelee about the spark and the butterfly feelings and once they are gone then its over. If you have ever read the bible you know that love is not about feelings. If that were the case we would all be in trouble cause I know all of us at one time could have cared less about God, yet he still had our back and loved us. Think about it, what about your job. Do you really feel like going to work everyday. If we followed our feelings and only went when we really felt like it, most of us probably wouldn't have a job. Same principle. Do the work in marriage, not just go on feelings.
Sorry didn't mean to write a hub here.
