Ahh yes, for a long time now, many people have thought that marriage is a sign of two people who are in love finally tying the knot and sealing the deal. However, not everybody agrees with this sentiment; in fact, a lot of people, myself included, think that marriage really isn't a good idea.

What do you guys think? Is marriage a good idea? If you choose an option, please be sure to state your reasons.

Bad idea. It's purposely restricting yourself against your biological instincts in exchange for financial strain and getting a fill of self-indulgent attachment that you'll most likely get tired of.

Great idea, so long as it's with the right person. Spending my life with someone I love more than anything; devoting myself to that person for the rest of my life? Absolutely.

But like I said, it better be the right person... =p

That really depends though, what exactly do you define as the "right" person. I do acknowledge that that's a somewhat subjective thing, but still, I'm sure you can still find that right person and not have to marry them in order to be happy or even together forever =p

It is rather subjective. So much so in fact, it almost makes sense when people say they "just know". Sometimes you can't describe why someone is right for you--you just know.

I put yay but right now people don't understand it's meaning.

Example: over 50% end in divorce.

Nowdays most everyone is selfish and thinks of themselves first. So, as soon as a fight breaks out its like person A says why should I remain in this marriage? I was happier before I got married. It's pointless to work on this marriage... divorce time.

I do believe for those that truly put an effort behind it, it is good in the end.

I can even understand if someone is on their 2nd marriage. Ok, there was something really wrong with it. But a 3rd marriage? or more? At this point...something is wrong with that person. They weren't meant to be married or they rushed into them too fast.

Well I can understand that, but still, what makes marriage so special, exactly?

I mean, is there any practical reason to get married? Besides dowry, and other such stuff.

There's some financial considerations for marriage. Lot of legal things regarding your property, income, insurance, mortgaging, rent, taxes, etc. Plus some social standards too, in my part of the state at least it's generally expected for a man and woman living together to be married.

And of course expanding your horizons, sometimes marriage opens those doors through connections you make with in-laws, for better or for worse.

Of course there's the flip side of that with divorce and what a pain it can be to untangle all that pooling of resources and who gets what.

It's really up to the person nowadays. It's possible to get by fine not getting married or living in some other arrangement with people, but for others it's a social norm to follow that's recognized more or less by our legal and political institutions.
