They say marriage is altogether a new beginning of life, a different life (sure it has it’s own pluses & minuses too I presume). Responsibilities is probably the all encompassing word that youngsters would define it as but I think it is just one aspect of it.
The one big thing that everyone desires in life is security. Marriage provides that to both the individuals who are participants in this set up. It gives emotional security to the woman as well as man & a sense of duty and purpose of earning for the latter. Well, of course I am just talking about the idea of starting a life together in the ‘marriage.’
Having someone by your side at all times come what may is something that people from all kinds of generation & walks of life value. Prolonged loneliness can even kill a person whereas having someone to share with, care for, be cared for is something very soothing if not pleasurable at all times.
I love to brood on human relationships & human emotions. Marriage has caught my fancy these days 🙂
