Being married for over 5 years and knowing my partner even more years make me appreciate the marriage. The best parts of marriage include:
- Someone who knows you better than anyone else.
- Someone to share anything and everything
- Dating Everyday
- Satisfying sexual relationship
- Having Children
- Sharing Household Chores
- Shared Religious Beliefs
- Agreement in Politics
Someone who knows you better than anyone
Marrying someone allows you to open your heart to another. A person who is your best friend and confidant. Someone who has been there for you through thick and thin, good times and bad. Someone who loves you unconditionally. Your soulmate.
Someone to share anything and everything with.
Even as an introvert myself, there is still some social aspect that is necessary over time. Being married to my wife allows me to find someone to share anything and everything with. It includes my bad habits or silly jokes or even far-fetched goals.
There is a reason why dating sites are popular. Dating is a great and fun activity for all ages. While getting married and having household chores makes it more difficult to date, it makes dating even more precious when both make time to connect.
A Satisfying Sexual Relationship
A good reason to get married is to have a legitimate sexual relationship with someone in your life. While many people are more open to sexual relationships even without marriage, marriage does mean a commitment to each other, especially people with similar morals and values.
Having shared interests (64%) and a satisfying sexual relationship (61%) are ahead of having children (43%) and having an adequate income (42%) in having a great relationship based on Pew Research.
Again, you could have children without marriage, it is a good trigger to get married and get the blessing from both parents and friends. Having a child is life changing and humbling experience. I won't have regrets since parenting is a unique experience you won't understand until you become one.
Sharing Household Chores
Sharing household chores is a great way to help maintain a healthy relationship. It is also beneficial for the family and the environment as it saves time and resources.
Can you imagine being 60 and needing to do all the household chores alone or relying on a maid? That will be more fun if you have children or your spouse to help instead.
It has been found that couples who share housework are more likely to feel closer to each other and have better sex lives. They are also less likely to get divorced or separate in later years, which means they will have more time together than those couples who don't share any housework at all.
More than half of married U.S. adults (56%) – both with and without children – say sharing household chores is “very important” to a successful marriage, according to the most recent report from Pew Research Center's Religious Landscape Study.
Among married adults, men are slightly more likely than women to say sharing household chores is very important to a successful marriage (63% vs. 58%). (pewresearch.org)
And those ages 18 to 29 (67%) and ages 30 to 49 (63%) are more likely to say sharing chores is very important, compared with 57% of those ages 50 to 64 and 56% of those 65 and older. (pewresearch.org)
Shared Religious Beliefs
Having a shared religious belief would make the marriage much easier for both of you if you go to the same place. It is also useful to find someone who shares your beliefs when things got tough in life (e.g. facing the death of a family member). I know of many who changed their religious beliefs along the way (e.g. from Buddhism to Christianity) not just because of their partner but due to their internal alignment.
Agreement in Politics
The best part of marriage is the agreement in politics or being both apolitical. While voting is sacred and there is no harm in voting in different parties, having a common agreement on what the government should do can be a common interest.
Political conversations can also help couples learn to talk about difficult subjects and "fight fairly,’" says Shelley Galasso Bonanno, a psychotherapist in private practice in the Detroit area. “While it may be easier for some couples to avoid conflict, constructive fighting that respects boundaries and allows both individuals to express themselves can strengthen relationships and build trust. ”
What are the good things about being married?
Having been married for many years. I feel like there are more good things than bad in our relationship. I am not sure if it is because of my age or just because we still feel young, we both argue about quite a few things we are insistent on but also learned to see from another point of view.
What is your favorite part of marriage? I love the fact that I can be myself with my wife. We are both very honest people, and we don’t have to pretend around each other. While we still upset each other, we know how each other feel about certain things, and learning to accept each other weaknesses and appreciate their strength is a wonderful life skill.
