If you have been going through your days feeling ashamed of being married, stop it already. Marriage is not that bad even if a lot of negative things are said about it. Instead of complaining about things he or she can’t do right, find things to be grateful for. After all, numerous people on earth wouldn’t be so sad that they are still alone. There are incentives to be found in marriage. Without further ado, we will tell you why you are lucky to be married.
1. Marriage offers guilt-free sex
If you are a believer, mostly a Christian, your Bible says that sex was designed for marriage. Hence, getting married to someone you love gives you total freedom to enjoy sex without guilt. Someone who is single and takes religion seriously might not have pre-marital sex without feeling guilt. And you can have it as often as you two want.
2. Having Kids in a marriage set up is less shameful
Some things are unanimously loathed. One of these is single parenthood, especially single motherhood. If you want to carry out your own investigation, feel free. There is so much hate against single mothers, to be precise. Many argue that kids born outside marriage face a higher risk of living a poor life, having poor grades in class and being stressed out. There are some who think that children who don’t get raised by both parents have behavioral and social problems. While this point is debatable, as not all kids raised by both parents turn out good, having kids in marriage is still more acceptable.
3. Two are better than one
Life circumstances can be so difficult sometimes and someone who is alone might wish they had someone. The same is the case with the joys of this life. There some little achievements that only a significant other who truly knows and understands you can help you celebrate. In a marriage, you can form a team when you are going through the storms of life and when you have things to commemorate. Decision making is can be easier too, as long as you are both focused on the same interests and goals.
4. Marriage offers some financial advantages
If the wife and husband work and can combine their income, reduce their expenditures and invest together, they can grow wealth much faster than a single salaried person. Marriage may make planning for retirement easier, though, and offer tax benefits from the IRS. As well, it is easier to get family health and many other insurance benefits when one is married. All the same, being financially better off is not a good reason to get married.
Some studies have found that married people can live longer and healthier. But this does not mean that those who cohabit can get the similar benefits. As well, it does not mean that those in miserable marriages can live longer and healthier than single people. To conclude, we would tell you to embrace marriage if you are in it already. Do your part to make it work and hopefully you will be able to gain a lot from it.
