Interesting Facts About Marriage And How Men And Women Think Of It
Marriage is a sacred bond. But it is also a societal burden. Even in today’s technologically advanced world, marriage is quite backward. People do not accept certain things related to marriage and relationships. This affects how men and women think about marriage. They have been conditioned a certain way to think about marriage and the opposite gender.
However, men and women are conditioned very differently since childhood and therefore, their perceptions differ greatly. Read on to find out some interesting facts about marriage from the perspective of both genders.
1Societal pressure on girls
This is something that is common to every society. No matter the culture, girls are always pressured to get married. From an early age, girls are taught that any suitable boy that pays attention to them, should be their future husband. This sexist notion is now slowly changing and many girls do not believe in such things anymore.
2Single women are frowned upon
This is something we have all noticed. As women cross a certain age, they are asked by everyone around them when they will get married and start a family. They often give in to the pressure and marry someone after dating briefly only to start a family. This results in a weak marriage and often divorce.
3A major difference in point of view
Our society is one that has created many fundamental differences between men and women. Men are taught that they can achieve anything and women are taught to stay within limits and bounds and accept what comes their way. The same applies to relationships. Men are told to date and marry only the woman they feel is right.
4Women’s point of view
Women are taught that the first man who is interested in them should be their priority. They should always look for a husband in every man they meet. Therefore, women often take a relationship more seriously than men. They invest a lot of time and effort and even after a year of being together, the man may leave at any time for a better woman.
