Marrying for parents

So many people say that they are getting married to make their parents happy. How can someone be happy in a marriage which is a sacrifice for parents? Marriage should be done for self and not for any obligation or under pressure.

  1. This is like hitting the same target through a disguised way. Those who marry for their parents know that they would be happy only when their parents are happy, so they do it. Those who know they would not be happy with a sacrifice kind of marriage stay away from it. And those who find themselves not happy even after making their parents happy need sympathy and guidance.

  2. That is true. Children should also know that parents’ happiness lies in their happiness.

    And children need not prove their love and respect to parents only by marrying the candidates of their choice. Nor should parents make marriage a touchstone to measure children’s love for them. There are whole lot of other ways.
