Maturity.With marriage comes maturity in life. A marriage requires trust, faith and commitment which makes a boy grow into a man, and makes him feel more responsible for himself and the relationship. At the same time, it gives a woman the emotional security of a stable relationship because her man’s commitment proves that he truly loves her and won’t stray into another woman’s arms.
You want children.Do you stare at those commercials on the telly where they show happy kids doing cute things and running around a park? When you’re ready for marriage, you’ll find yourself getting drawn to children and babies with curiosity and affection.
Marriage gives financial dependability.As a girlfriend and boyfriend, you can definitely share each other’s monetary good fortune and deal with tough times. But when you’re married to each other, there’s more financial security because both of you lead your lives and aspirations keeping each other in mind.
You respect values.Values in life give more meaning and make you a person of principles. Marriage is an ethical bond that defines your relationship with your partner as more than just a casual fling. Your parents were married, and their parents before them. And you want to continue that legacy and follow the same principles.
Your achievements feel empty.You’ve achieved what you want in life so far, money, a house, a fast car, and what not. But all of these are material possessions that give happiness, but don’t give meaning to your life. Knowing you have someone who loves you and unconditionally cares for you waiting for you at home will always give you more happiness than any material possessions that surround you.
You have someone to call your own.The world is filled with billions of people. But when you’re single or still just dating someone, you’re just an individual living the lonely life with no one to call your own. But when you get married, you have someone else who’ll share your life with you legally, and have someone you truly can call your own. And when you have someone who sees life through your eyes, your life will feel more meaningful and important.
Growing old with someone.This may not make much sense if you’re still young. But as you get older, you’d enjoy the pleasure of spending time with a special someone that you love more than anyone else in the whole world. Just knowing that you have someone to take care of you, understand your preferences and your principles in life, and vice versa, can make you feel more satisfied in life and give more meaning to your existence.
You found your soulmate.Have you found the one who makes you feel more alive and happy? If you’ve met your true love and can’t wait to spend the rest of your lives together and grow old together, what better way to make a serious commitment than by proposing marriage?
Your parents.A marriage can help your parents feel more reassured about your future. Even though they may not voice it, getting married to the one you love is reassuring for both families because it makes them feel happier to know that you and your lover have found happiness in each other, and would always be there for each other through thick and thin. And let’s not forget the joy of playing with their grandkids.
Meaning to life.A marriage can make you more focused in life. When you’re married to someone, you’re not just responsible for yourself. You’re responsible for your partner too. Together, both of you have created a new entity that breathes life as a couple. Like a bigger, better job, a marriage means more responsibilities, but it also gives you more satisfaction and meaning to your existence.
