AFRICANGLOBE – Getting married is often the biggest event in a person’s life.
It means being committed to one person for the rest of your life, and while there are plenty of good reasons not to get married, there are many good reasons for marriage. If you’re not sure that you are ready to take that big step, these five solid reasons to get married will help you decide.
1. Marriage means more sexual fulfillment
While single guys are excited by having one-night stands and the thrill of constantly chasing different women, married men are home having sex with their wives. Married men have more sex than single men, have a better feel for their partner’s bodies, have an absence of guilt, are more aware of their partner’s fantasies and report a higher rate of sexual satisfaction than single counterparts who find themselves bouncing from girl to girl.
2. Marriage gives you a legal platform to start a family
While it’s pretty obvious you don’t need to be married to have kids, marriage is still the most stable and secure environment in which to start a family and keep your bloodline going.
3. Marriage can provide more financial benefits
There are numerous financial benefits associated with marriage which includes tax breaks, health insurance plans etc. In a marriage where both partners are working, it can be easier to afford the things you could never afford on your own; it means a better home, a better car, a better vacation, etc…Like it or not, society is designed to make life easier for married couples.
4. Marriage can improve your health
Research shows that men who are married engage in fewer risky behaviors, like binge drinking or dangerous hobbies and careers. Married men also eat healthier, visit the doctor more often and may have better immune systems as well, either from support or from nagging to monitoring things like blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, etc….
5. Marriage gives you a higher rate of happiness
A good marriage offers a man the kind of stability and support that allows him to succeed in all other aspects of life. Many studies have shown that men are higher achieving when they are married, and having a good wife can bring out the best in you, challenge you to be the best version of yourself and help you learn the true meaning of self-sacrifice and compromise.
