many years ago, i read an article from newpaper that a couple get married was cos of convenience. they both go back to the same home, have their own separate lives and continue seeing other pple. this is called marriage of convenience, they got married cos of housing benefits and husband n wife in name only, so i dun see their marrriage last for long.
some guys settle down to get married cos they are no longer young, wanted to start a family to carry on their family names. in their haste to get married, they just choose whichever ger that came along and after marriage, found out that the ger is not really suitable for him due to temperament, habits, thinking and the like. the same also goes for gers as well.
for me, i rather be single than get married and found out that my wife and I could not get along due to differences in thinking, outlook, character, habits, lifestyles, and temperament. there are hassles quarrelling and not to mention the monetary and emotional costs of divorces and alimony.
last week the 37 year old deliveryman killed his 26 year old wife of indonesian descent, probably cos of affair outside. their marriage is clearly a mismatch at the outset due to differences in age, thinking, temperament, character and also social status.
If I have a wife that have an affair outside, no point in killing or arguing with her, just file for divorce and get evidence for adultery to file for divorce in court.
same goes to ger if husband stray outside of marriage.
Sad to said yes nowaday, very few really married because of they can't do without each other. Some even married due to peer pressure, some just plain envy friends who married, as friends circle getting smaller lesser, loneliness came along. And human just fall into this circle and got married but then again usually ended up divorce..
