Power of Marriage
By: Ehimwenma E. Aimiuwu
2006

 

 

It is obvious to all that we were all born single or as individuals, if twins and triplets come into question.  Even among twins and triplets, those who know them will swear that they are as individual as a single baby with unique interests and habits. 

 

As we get older, we are taught to look for that special person and pair up to start a family.  In today’s world, marriage has become irrelevant and the new generation wonders if there is any need for it.  Many have said that they could get sex anywhere and other feel that staying with one person forever is a form of restrictive punishment.  TV shows and magazines portray men as irresponsible and unwanted nuisance, while women are shown as intelligent and self-sufficient.  It has now become a culture of “you do not need a man; you can do it all by yourself”, versus “girls are just people in skirts you just sleep with”.

 

This modern culture which is based on money, greed, and career has increased the rate of distrust, selfishness, violence, and envy between people and gender.  Each one is looking from Mr. or Mrs. Right – the individual who has all they need, whom they can take from and almost give nothing back in return.  This is the logic for many late marriages, if they marry at all. 

 

The purpose of marriage, aside from God and love, is to bring two heads of opposite gender together, to procreate, raise a family, and plan towards a common future with an attempt to help the society become a better place to live in.   The generation of today by themselves is destructive and self-serving, and almost can not comprehend the above purpose of marriage.  The children and child support check they create are not as a result of love and future goals, but as a result of sexual activity based on distrust, money, selfishness, and greed.
