    Is marriage the answer to a happy life?

    To be married and have a family works well in some traditional values. Do you think marriage is the answer to having that happy life?

    Hi Devika, I believe that happiness is all about sharing the joyous and peaceful moments with those people who have direct or indirect relationship with us.

    Without a spouse, some forms of happiness are quite meaningless. There are loads of things that can be explained, but to be honest, the moment one gets into conjugal relationship, the happiness scale to new heights.

    As far traditional values, yes they have there own part to play, but that need a careful consideration with regard to there implementation. If husband and wife know each other well and have a compatibility in terms of understanding than nothing prove to be a hindrance.

      Hi I agree with you on certain level but not always is  marriage the answer to one's happiness. It depends on the individual. Thank you

    The purpose of human life is to use the mind, body and speech for the helping others. Research indicates that those who consistently help other people experience less stress, enjoy higher levels of mental health, feel more connected to your spirit, feel more grateful for what you have  and less invested in the 'rat race' that causes stress for so many of us.

    Religion begins with an obliging nature. Happiness begins from the moment you do something for others.

    The primary sign, prerequisite, is to not hurt any living being. Everything falls under this main quality. This includes celibacy (brahmacharya), a healthy and a happier way to lead life according to spirituality; It gives lot of vitality to the body and a powerful mind, so you can accomplish all your goals.

    Those who desire the pleasures of worldly life and have a desire for material things, they should get married and those who do not like worldly pleasures and are seeking eternal happiness, should not get married.

    No, marriage is not for everyone. There are many different paths to happiness. Marriage is just one of them.

    @DDE  I think for some it is.  However, I don't believe it is the answer for everyone.  For me, a happy, fulfilling marriage is the answer.

    I think marriage is the step towards happiness as it brings to souls closer to each other for life long durations. But, it comes with some responsibilities and problems also. Both of them should be capable of understanding each other and bear each other's thoughts and opinions and adjust among themselves. Forbearance and patience are most important in these relationships.

    Happiness lies within not outside. Tilt the scale a little towards giving instead of expecting. Then marriage is the answer of happy life.

    No. Happiness comes from within oneself. Hence, anything external like marriage should not be counted upon to give one happiness. Marriage is a part of life, just like our relationship with our friends or parents. It might not always lead to happiness.

    Not at all. I beg to differ, marriage is certainly not the answer, but one of the answers. The real answer is need of a female companion, married ot not who can be part of your dream. That is talking from a mans viewpoit. A woman may think differently
