With the high rates of divorce in the society today, many people are scared of getting married. “Why get married if there will be a divorce tomorrow?” seems to the question people are asking.
I know a lot of friends who are worried getting married because they believe getting married means they will have to give up their freedom. So they just think dating or even living together is so much easier.
I believe in lifelong love and getting married definitely makes love feel a little different.
Below are 12 best reasons to get married
1. YOU LIVE LONGER
One good reason about getting married is that you live longer. According to a 2006 University of California study, single people are five times more likely to die of heart disease and twice as likely to die accidentally.
2. IT’S THE ULTIMATE PROOF OF LOVE
You can’t say you truly love a woman if you can’t spend the rest of your life with her. There is no bigger proof of love than asking your lover for her hand in marriage.
3. YOU INCREASE YOUR EARNING POWER
Two salaries means more money which also means you can afford the things you could never afford on your own.
4. YOU GET A LIFELONG PARTNER
Getting married means you get a lifelong cuddle buddy and s*x partner who knows your likes and your dislikes.
5. YOU HAVE SOMEONE THAT SHARES YOUR BURDEN
Getting married means you have a spouse that can share and ease your burden when you go through a difficult time.
6. IT’S THE BEST MODEL FOR STARTING A FAMILY
Lots of people are becoming baby mamas and daddies these days but marriage still remains the best model for starting a family. Marriage offers you the most stable and secure environment in which to start a family.
7. MARRIAGE GIVES YOU SOMEONE TO CALL YOUR OWN
Getting married gives you someone you can truly call your own. You can’t truly call someone you are dating your own but it’s different with marriage.
8. YOU GET MORE S*X
Single people actually feel they have more s*x than the married ones but they are so wrong. According to a Kinsey Institute study, while only 19% of single men have s*x two to three times weekly, 36% of married men have s*x that often. So while you are spending all those cash to have s*x with that lady, your married friend is getting down with his wife at home.
9. YOU BECOME MORE FOCUSED IN LIFE
Marriage makes you more focused in life because when you are married, you are just not responsible for yourself alone but for your partner too.
10. YOU BECOME A BETTER PERSON
I have seen lots of guys and ladies become a better version of themselves after marriage. Getting married makes you more responsible and getting married to the right person can make you a better person.
11. YOU GET BETTER S*X
Forget all the s*x you get as a single man or woman, the best s*x is married s*x. Married couples know each other better in bed which leads to amazing s*x.
12. YOU HAVE SOMEONE TO GROW OLD WITH
Marriage offers you a companion that will grow old with you. Marriage offers you a companion that will take care of you and understand your preferences till the very end.
