Have you ever thought about why people get married? I often wonder if happily married couples tied the knot because they’re head over heels in love with each other. Honestly, that’s the first thing that comes to mind when I see or hear couples getting married. In reality, though, there are a number of reasons why people get hitched.

Some people marry for love. I think this is still the best reason why people should get married. You want to spend the rest of your life with the person you love and who loves you back in return.

Others marry for companionship. The fear of growing old alone drives some people to marry even if they’re not necessarily in love with the person they’re marrying. There are those who eventually fall in love with the person they married.

Some marry for convenience. It may be that the girl gets pregnant and she sees marrying the man responsible for her situation as the next best thing to do. After all, she and her baby need moral, emotional, and financial support.

There are also people who marry to meet their physical and sexual needs. A man needs someone to cook for him, to fix his things, to listen to his woes, to just be there for him, and to satisfy his carnal desires. There are women, too, who look for these things in a marriage.

The need to have children is also one of the reasons why people get married. It’s a comforting feeling to know that there’ll be someone to perpetuate your species for all the world to see. Besides, I really believe children are the greatest joys of parents.

Whether you marry for love, for companionship, for convenience, for the fulfillment of your physical and sexual needs, or for having children, I still don’t think marriage is something that you should take lightly. Marriage can make or break you. So marry for the right reasons. As for me, I’m glad I married my husband. He might not be the perfect man, but he’s the perfect one for me.
