Do you think having children is a must in a marriage ?
'must' is very subjective... which means it must ultimately be a personal decision between both individuals aka husband and wife.
I agree that must is subjective but not in the sense of whether the marriage is male and female. A marriage is between a man and a woman. However there are some who are just incapable of having children so for them I would say no. For those that can I would say yes.
Just as one can have children without marriage so can one have marriage without children.
Ideally having children is a "choice" and not a "requirement" of marriage. Marriage is a commitment between two people to be legally recognized by government entities. A marriage without children is just as valid as a marriage with children. Not every couple wants children.
