When people make the decision to get into a committed relationship, they probably think the next logical step is falling in love, get married, and then have kids. This is, after all, what is traditional. The modern day, non-traditional route people take see to skip the love step and go to marriage, to get to the kids stage.
If you ask a lot of older people why they got married, they will tell you to have a family. I wonder if this intent to marry gives it a longer chance of survival? I mean, if you didn’t get married for love, you won’t want to give up when the love goes away, or fades.
Sometimes I wonder if we are divorcing more than our parents because we get married for a fairy tale life that never happens. Obviously, we want to love the person we marry, but is love enough to make it last?
What do you think, is love the right reason to get married?
