There are a plethora of diverse opinions concerning getting married and, unfortunately, lots of them are blurred with old-school misconceptions like “you need to get married because everybody does,” “it’s time,” “you won’t find anybody later,” and so on.
Another concern is that lots of young generation representatives give up on getting married and give preference to long-term partnership instead of the marriage also because of these toxic stereotypes. But the thing is that partnerships are not usually as strong as the marriage.
At the same time, some people may even consider never getting engaged in any serious relationships relying on one-night stands or occasional ties.
However, the marriage can beat all other options – and here are five reasons for that.
1. Growing love
It might sound trivial, but in a marriage, you can learn more about your loved one because you will be exposed to more of the habits and interests of this person. Pessimists often claim that marriage is the end of a romantic relationship. However, a person is like a book, so when the person is growing as a personality in front of you, your love for the person grows as well.
2. Legal commitment
No other type of a relationship can boast with constitutional bounds – rights that get both a husband and a wife , backed up by the law.
Once they pledge to be with each other, which is supported by documents or they can visit each other officially in hospitals as relatives. Also, they can get broader opportunities as bank clients on the same basis, they can make sure their property is adequately divided between them, and they can raise up a child in safe conditions entirely as well as get financial support for that (depending on a country).
3. Help in difficult times
When getting married, both in a couple make not only a legal but also a moral and emotional commitment. A genuine couple will support each other eternally, no matter what the troubles are – those, related to a career, self-development, self-esteem, emotional instability or anything else. Having an understanding spouse can be a great support.
4. Regular sex
There’s neither healthy nor happy life without sex. So when you get married, you get a partner who is ready to share this pleasure with you on a regular basis. You won’t have to look for hookups any longer.
Moreover, you can be sure your sexual health will be stable as there are more guarantees your spouse won’t have other partners (if it’s a serious relationship, for sure) apart from you.
But most importantly, there will always be an emotional connection between two of you in the sex, which can make it a much brighter experience.
5. Financial advantages
No man is an island, the old saying says. That’s why there have been invented a marriage – a state in which two people can also rely on each other regarding financial needs. When both in a couple of work, it becomes earthier for them to rent an apartment, save money or put it together to invest in a business.
Sure enough, it's your choice whether to get married or not, but whatever you do, always think twice: it's your life, and nobody should decide for you.
