Each one of us looks at relationships differently. Some of us like to keep it loose, some prefer commitment while some just can’t wait for it to be secured by a strong bond, like marriage. Although many people consider marriage ‘the next big step’ in a relationship that would bring a change in their lives, yet it is not really the ultimate goal of a relationship, if you ponder.
There is nothing wrong with fantasizing marriage and looking forward to the big day but, if talking generally, marriage is not the goal for successful relationships. In other words, two people do not ‘need’ to get married in order to make their relationship successful; it is possible without marriage too.
Here are 7 reasons why marriage is not the goal for a successful relationship:
1. Certificates Often Don’t Matter If You Have The Talent:
If the two of you have a bond stronger than anything. And everything you do connects you strongly with them, then you may not feel the need to be married to them, and it is completely alright. When/if the purpose is fulfilled, that is vowing to stay together forever without getting married then marriage is not the ultimate goal for your relationship which is successful, if such is the case.
2. It is Secondary:
People often forget that marriage is secondary while falling in love with and fully understanding your partner is primary. Rushing through the first phase only to jump to the second phase that is marriage is not the right way to take a relationship along. Working on your relationship comes first and the reason why marriage is secondary is because it is just a stronger form of commitment and not a factor on which your relationship should wholly depend.
