Marriage could be such a lovely union but one with intricacies; the love, arguments and quarreling, the continuity or divorce, the reproduction all add up to make it the union with the most love and hate at the same time.

There are some weird, interesting and funny facts about marriage that would really make your day. Check them out below.
