6 Reasons To Get Married

“Why should I get married?” is a common question these days for good statistical reasons. You might think getting married is too risky compared to the common alternatives, like single parenting or cohabitation. But you probably don’t know about the risks that come with the alternatives. You also probably don’t know about the true benefits of a legitimate marriage.

Unfortunately the hazards and benefits are not well defined or promoted, respectively. They are certainly not found in pop magazines nor shown by movie stars and singers that are our so-called role models!

Too many people jump into marriage without a clear vision of why they are getting married, nor do they have any idea about how to be married. Marriages we see today are usually not that encouraging.

I want to set the record straight.

I would like to share reasons to get married that are both scientific and universally true. I am hoping to inspire you to dig deeper into understanding marriage, so your personal choices will help you create a life full of happiness and no regrets.

Remember, marriage is NOT for everyone. So first I will identify two basic and necessary criteria for marriage.

I don’t want to sell you on marriage. I only want to help you make a better choice for your life. So, unless you can honestly claim these traits, it is best that you hold off on marriage.

  1. You are mature enough to desire a life that is not “entertainment” based. Marriage is a deep relationship that does not remove the challenges of life. You face the challenges together, but they still come.
  2. You are capable of putting the needs of another ahead of your own desires. There is no such thing as a marriage that is all about you. Selfishness is a guarantee for failure.

Now that we’ve cleared the air, here are 6 great reasons to why you should get married:

  1. Have a deep connection with your soulmate.
  2. Learn how to love one person unconditionally.
  3. Have a lifetime connection that grows over time.
  4. Contribute to society by raising children properly.
  5. Experience and embrace personal growth.
  6. Feel joy all the time.

The reasons to get married, if you approach this scientifically without emotion, all trace back to some purpose. No matter what you do, there is always a reason for your action; marriage is no different.

The above reasons to get married stand out because all of them bring you individual happiness. This is the scientific way to look at marriage, and we think it’s the only way to look at why you should get married. Otherwise you will be making a decision that will impact the rest of your life, and without due consideration.

Lost to our society is the fact that marriage is a sacred and spiritual union, which allows and protects the expression of love. If people knew this fact, and understood it, the divorce rate would be very low. But if one does not study marriage, as a scientific endeavor, they will rarely discover the many benefits.

    and you have to gut to call these “scientific” reasons? Galileo is rolling over in his grave! This is science 101. Learn the “Scientific method” first, and then and rethink your article… and save people from such nonsense. Thank you. At best these are your 6 opinions

      Young man, I’m not sure what triggered you. Perhaps you did not agree with the primary goal of happiness through unconditional love. But I can assure you Galileo is resting comfortably.
      If you are considering marriage and are not sure what to do I, or one of our counselors would be happy to help you in any way we can.

    My boyfriend and I have been previously married which ended in messy divorce. We are into our second year together. Both 44. I have been divorced for seven years, he for five. I know that he is the person I would enjoy spending the rest of my life with for so many good reasons. He states he loves me the same. However, he does not believe in marriage and does not have any desire to be married again. He also stated that marriage is a “business agreement” and he does not want rules of a court or religious institution dictating a relationship. I feel strongly about marriage for emotional (unconditional love) and spiritual reasons. Also, because my grandparents were married for 75 years and many family members have long marriages I believe marriage can be a beautiful, although sometimes challenging, journey with the right person. He wants to continue the discussion. I have also stated that I feel so strongly about marriage I will not compromise anything less than and would be sign a prenup because after all it is not his money that he currently has or does not have that I am after… It is his love and a life with him we can build together. Please help me understand his views and help me articulate in a way that he can understand why marriage is a good union.

      We don’t explain things we don’t promote, so sorry we cannot help you there. But, both of you would do well from the premarital course, whether you choose to formally marry, or not.

    I am allowing this testimonial to act as a WARNING to those who think marriage is easy or “natural” and you do not have to learn from an expert.
    If you are getting married GET OUR PROGRAM!

    Married 52 years and was the worst thing I ever did! there is nothing I can do to fix it either, I’m way to old now. This is what happens when your young and so very stupid. I’m not a together type person and I guess I never was. After marriage sex was terrible and I was like an open bank for this and that. About 8 to 10 years into our marriage I put an end to togetherness, I moved out of the bedroom, and started working as many hours as I could on the midnight shift. All holidays weekends all my vacation time and slept when I could. Some times I got home to sleep in my apartment garage, work shop. Often times I’d sleep in my truck at work, building had showers and I always had a change of clothes. Taught myself that I didn’t need or want sex and I wasn’t cheating. I now like my life and me, don’t talk to wife or associate with her. What she did all these years I have no idea nor do I care.
