Married or Happy???

My parents cant stop, but scrutinize all my male friends background, as they rightly think i have attained the so called nubile age. Coming from a semi traditional family, i have learned to respect the indian family values while stepping into the mordern times(it might sound ironic to some, but i have). The feasibility of the institution of marriage never ceases to intirgue me.

The increasing number of failed marriages, single parents makes one wonder, Is it worth it?
First you get married to someone you think you love and then you compromise on everything to avoid any complications of divorce or anything like that, then when you have kids, they become your laibility and it becomes so god damn difficult to get out of all this that its seriously needs a second thought wether it was really worth it?

I may lack experience to raise any point of view on pros and cons of marriage,but the contemprory scenarios as such dont reflect the best of marriages. Its for us to take the decision, and face the consequences. 'Never commit' are the saviour words in the present era.

I agree it’s quite a debated topics and its one individual’s discretion as how he/she takes it. Never commit sounds fun when someone has only nasty things in their mind, well as a ratio wise consensus male will definitely dominate females. Men primarily want to stick to women rather than woman. Marriage is of course a relationship where both have to do a little bit of compromises and also curtail their freedom a bit. Like everything else a relationship also needs pampering or else it will turn sour. But at the end of the day what counts is how you are maintaining it. Regarding your thought as why your parent’s keeps a tab on each of your male friends, you will come to know about this answer once you have children (let’s say a baby girl to simulate it to your case).

I am sure it must be wonderful to share all the wonderful days n your life with someone you love , especially when you find someone who really loves you, unselfishly.

I am not against marriage or anything and i understand totally my parents perspective. But Life gets more amusing when they think any guy i speak over the phone cud be boyfriend....[:D]

This was just a Point of View.

As i said earlier, I will give it a shot but not unless i find someone worth it..!!

When you are 5 years old.. you make friends in 2 minutes..
When you are 10yrs old you make friends in a day..
When you become 20 you become picker. at 30 it gets worse..
Marriage gives you some sort of stabity and confort that you might not see now but which might be really important sometime down the lane.
