Marriage - The necessary evil........

So even after centuries of evolution of mankind, the tag of "Marriage"is still oh so necessary in this patriarchal society. Somehow, no matter how successful you are as an individual, how much you accomplish in life, and surprisingly how happy you are being single, still, people consider you a loser in life if you don't acquire that tag.


Its as if you are missing out on something quintessential to your very existence.... Some people may argue here that the very reason of our existence is procreation... and marriage is a means to that end. But then 48.2% of world population is married and working towards that end... so some of us mortals may as well lead a fulfilling life without achieving that landmark...


But NO! Your Brain is programmed in a way since childhood that you think that marriage is the culmination of all sorts of tangible and intangible success....and the society does not really help if you are a good looking, successful and happy soul in your 30s. They make you realize time and again that you are left far behind in the race. And then, after constant raised eyebrows, question marks and uncalled for counselling sessions, you give up and give in!!!


And the nightmare begins!! For all the confused souls out there, my personal experience has given me an insight worth sharing.... though I have myself read this multiple times at multiple places, but still, I reiterate... DON'T GET MARRIED FOR THE WRONG REASON.... you are going to regret it tremendously...


I'll continue with my story in my next verbal downpour in case someone finds this one worth reading... and then, I am a newbie here so I am not really sure how this place works... so I'll figure out the same and continue with my story in the next post....
