Finding The Right Reason To Marry

Aug 17, 2007
You've gone through the dating scene and enjoyed it. Some of your friends are starting to settle down and get married. This is the time in your life you may now ask the question, which is on every lip: "Why marry?"

The reasons are countless. Not every reason, however, would suit you.

Perhaps we should thumb through a working check list. Write down any reasons that appeal to you.

Greater Comfort

There is no question that marriage can give a man greater creature comforts. The familiar picture of the devoted wife, the pipe and slippers, and the tender loving care is all too true in many cases, and can last for months.

If you have no good clubs, service apartments or hotels in your neighborhood consider this seriously.

After children arrive, of course, you will have to shift-for yourself. You will then be physically uncomfortable a greater part of the time. But in many cases the sacrifice is worth it.

More Companionship

The married man is never lonely. There are people around all the time, especially after the arrival of children.

In fact, many husbands and fathers have not had a moment to themselves for years.

The selfish husband who expects companionship from his wife, however, will be disappointed. The first wife, as he will see, must work fourteen to sixteen hours a day and has little time to be a companion to her husband.

Don't be unreasonable. If you want the companionship primarily of adult females, by all means stay single. Find reliable unattached girls with similar hobbies and you will have companionship galore.

The Joys of Children

Children are certainly a great joy. This is particularly true of other people's children.

To enjoy them fully, encourage brothers, sisters, or close friends to marry and procreate. It is the uncle or trusted friend who sees children at their best. They will be clean, well-dressed, well-behaved, and with their company manners.

A gift or two may spoil them a little, but will go a long way toward making the non-father loved and admired. Romp with them freely. It will do you no harm if the children are well trained, and will be appreciated by the youngsters.

Grandchildren are best. To the grandfather go all the advantages of having children without any of the drawbacks.

How to have grandchildren without going through the occasionally messy process of having children first is a task we have thrown to our researchers.

Self Duplication

You probably feel, as so many men do, that your own qualities are unique and wonderful, and that there should be someway of making more of you. There is.

If you can get used to children, and have enough of them you may find one, which recaptures some of your points.

Though there are other ways of having children, marriage is the only one that is socially acceptable. Get married and before you know it the little ones will be on their way.

Longer Life

Any set of life insurance figures will show you that married men live longer than unmarried ones. This is true.

What it means is that the men who choose to marry are the longer-lived types, paradoxically enough the less adventurous and more sedentary. This is because of the popular misconception that married life is quieter and more settled.

Getting married will not actually make you live longer. It will shorten your life. But once again, in many cases it is worth it.

Marriage is a very important decision so mull over these reasons before you take the plunge.
