Why Do People Get Married


Taariq Pritchard

Every couple has different reasons to get married that apply to their unique relationship. Many couples share similar reasons for planning to get married. Whether a couple’s reasons are purely emotional, legal, financial, or some combination of these or other reasons. Recognizing why marriage is important can help them understand the commitment they have to their long term relationship.

Be sure you get married for the right reasons to stay happily wed. Even while couples consider why they want to get married, they should also know some reasons not to get married. Getting married for poor, unrealistic reasons can lead to a bitter, unhappy marriage or a painful divorce. While those results may seem far away on the wedding day, couples who understand why they want to get married can be better prepared for sharing a happy lifetime together.
