Marriage is the corner stone of moral and social order. What we can perceive from the existing scenario is, the INSTITUTION named MARRIAGE, which people used to be sacred to until a few years back are now losing out on the importance of it.
People are preferring to be single, or in a live-in relationship and they claim to be happy. But technically, when we look at our parents, or grandparents, we feel proud and happy to be with them. Isn't it?

Even better compliment we get is that we're an exact replica of our mom/dad, and the feeling sure is great. Our parents are our role models.
But, nowadays, we want to have our own life, own sphere, own space, own money, etc. So, in short, life has become a cocoon and the individual wants to have a hassle-free life, without having any accountability.
The Next Phase Of Marriage - Commitment & Responsibility
Now, comes the next phase, in which marriage demands commitment and responsibility. Youngsters are running away from both the terms because it requires a lifetime effort.
Had you faced the same, what would have been your reaction? Of course, sounds a bit rude, but nobody loves to be alone.
When you are back from college or work, you want the presence of both your parents, and you need both of their guidance in different phases of life, isn't it?
Marriage actually is a beautiful relationship, if experienced with the right person. In other words, you have to up bring and nurture a new relationship with a new person, whether it is an arranged or a love marriage.
You need to understand one another deeply, feel for one another, have the habit of adjustment, should compromise for one another, and last but not the least, shouldn't hesitate or get your ego in saying SORRY, if its saving your relationship.
You feel more stable and secure in a marriage, as compared to a live-in relationship. The reason being, difference in the feelings for one another.
It's not important that every partner is same or everyone is lucky enough to have an adjusting partner. No family is perfect.
None of the family members would have been there where there were no fights or quarrels. But you need to give time and space accordingly and you need to be positive.
Now, when you look back and feel happy about your parents being together, you should give them credit for sacrificing their lives. Many are unfortunate who don't get to stay with both the parents.
Ask them the importance of each of the parent's love, then you will realise what a gem you have in your life.

Once, marriage was such a sacred thing in India, which needed to be performed with different rituals, as per customs and religions, but now, the scenario has completely changed.
None of the live-in relationships, no matter for how long you continue to be in the one, can give you that feeling, emotion or bonding, which a marriage can make you experience.
Therefore, we can't deny the fact that marriage actually helps brighten our future and look for a better tomorrow.
