With marriage in today’s society, some still value the fact that they will be with the love of their lives. The tale of a happy marriage would be buying a house on the hill with the white picket fence. The man would have a great career and the wife will take care of the house they would have two or three children and they all would live happily ever after. Of course, this was what values and maybe even point of views that some shared or thought a marriage should be or have. What does today’s society expect from married couples today? Will the couple now only get married because they have made a baby? Will the couple not get a divorce only because they have children and the only reason their together because of the children? Today, society expects marriage to fail, but that maybe because they don’t know really acknowledge the value of marriage. Not all marriages are like this, not all marriages were once looked at to fail.
There are some marriages that still do survive. There are people who still have the values and morals of what a marriage should be. Some may even say that their marriage stronger now, than what it was when they first began. Some people still love their husband or wife more than they ever did. Some influences that marriage may have on most people is that, people who get married may have a religious reasons for it they want to abide by the holy way for getting married.
They may want to follow the ways of bible and of what their religion asks of them to do and follow. This way of marriage is like a contract or covenant, but what is a covenant? According to the Church, a covenant is a contract between two parties that is established before God as a witness. It is also a contract whose permanence is safeguarded by God. This is what some may still value and want out of marriage and besides all the love one could give to one another they still will and could value the religion views. However, when it comes to gay marriage and should they get married.
Letting same-sex couples be permitted to marry may be a hard decision to make for some, being that marriage is the formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife. So when it comes to seeing a man and man or woman and woman getting married. Some may feel that it’s not right, that it shouldn’t be Christian believers who say it’s an abomination, and it’s a sin against God. Should it be legal for same-sex couples to get married? Here are some pros and cons to why it should be. Yes marriage is something that should be legal for same-sex couples. Marriage is something that some people still look at as a value, a deeper expression of their love for one another the next level of being together for eternity and wanting to be with that one and only person for the rest of their lives. So why should they be denied the chance to take their love to the next level.
Why shouldn’t same-sex couples be able to marry and have that experience, and the chance to be with their lover for the rest of their lives? Then that’s when it comes to why same-sex shouldn’t get married like said before same-sex couples are frowned upon. All around the world although it’s starting to become accepted with some people it is still sought as a sin. When doing an interview with a close friend by the name of Deon Walton, it was asked should same-sex-couples get married and he stated that “In my opinion, I think same-sex marriage should not be allowed because in the bible God says men and women should be married. You can’t reproduce if you are sleeping with the same-sex. So how would the world keep going if we don’t have another generation?” Most in agreeing with the comment Deon made that basically same-sex marriage would be a sin. A sin is an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. For some people, they believe and will say no that same sex couples shouldn’t be giving the legal right to marry. It’s a sin against God and it is not right as the famous words of some Christian believer love to say “God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”
Other than the sense of love, what is attained through a marriage? Marriage is a bond between two people who plan to spend the rest of their lives together. They want to become more official as a couple. In the sense of having a deeper commitment, they want to take the relationship to the next level. Rather than just dating they want matrimony. Matrimony is the state or ceremony of being married or marriage. To share an everlasting love with each other, marriage is more than love it’s a friendship, it’s a bond, and it’s being loyal and uniting plans together. The two who get married will have to be willing to share, sacrifice, and will to be there for one another. Be there for one another through thick and thin. As some wedding vows normal ask of each party in a relationship, it normally consists of asking the couple to commit that they will.
I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.” Love is what will bring the word and thought of marriage. However, when it actually comes down to it a person must think about the commitments that come with being married. Commitment means the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. Moreover, an important aspect to having and maintaining a good marriage is that one must be faithful, care for one another, and have unconditional love. A person must being willing to fight for the union and stick through whatever may come their way. This also entails a commitment to not give up when things get rough. “The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they’re right if you love to be with them all the time.” Finally, marriage is a state of happiness. Happiness is a state of being which can fluctuate. A couple can be in love with each other, but the two must have happiness in between as well.
It helps balance between the two in the relationships. Love helps express how much one is happy with their loved one. They want to be with each other for the rest of their lives. Then, happiness expresses how much the person is in love with their loved one. They have an undeniable love for one another that gives them a blessed feeling of joy and happiness. These are some of the things that can help sustain marriage. Interview Deon Walton again he stated that “what I hope to attain by marriage is happiness, comfort, and a great family. With that marriage is nothing, why be married to a person if they don’t make you happy.” Besides love what else is attained in marriage is happiness, faithfulness, trust, and sacrifice. Isn’t what helps and what must be attained in marriage to help keep it together as well as help make and keep it strong.
