  1. The institution of marriage has been alive for generations all over the world. Not all marriages are happy and it is universally accepted that marriage is hard work yet couples still get married and I expect they will continue to do so for many generations to come.

    1. Thanks. Traditionally it will go on for generations. However we need to rethink and work upon –

      1) How the matter of marital discord can be assuaged.
      2) What needs to be done to eliminate the growing scepticism among unmarried individuals.

      Isn’t it..!!!

  2. Putting off marriage could be due to various factors, one is already mentioned, above.
    But I have seen many individuals with horrible parents still eager to be with someone, so there are exceptions.
    Also, today due to economic independence, and women being really clear about what they want, marriage is slowly becoming more of an attractive event than an occuring between two people.
    I wonder if we take away the gala functions and the waste of money celebrations, will it be more soulful, will that attract more youngsters to believe in the institution once again.. !!!

  3. It does, but it shouldn’t be the case. Because it cannot be generalized, you can always create your own story.

    1. I agree. One should not get too apprehensive with the happenings around society. This natural tendency needs to be resolved. And I suppose there are many examples to enliven the spirit of unmarried male/female.

  4. I think more than this seeing your parents in an unhappy marriage makes you not want to get into one!

    1. This is so very true. One of the strong reason for putting off the knot could definitely be seeing a bad marriage.

    2. Thanks. I can see a psychological streak in your viewpoint , worth commendable. However the fact is that …I have keenly observed and studied the discouraging impact of marital discord happening around society.
