I covered a ceremony on account of the International day of the Family this year and one of the high points of the event was a marriage ceremony for 17 couples present. The marriage ceremony had been organized by the Ministry of Women's Empowerment and the family, and it was aimed at reducing the number of couples living together without the cover of marriage, so it was free and the couples had to pay nothing.
So I started to think. What is marriage all about? Why wait until there is a free marriage ceremony for you to rush and put your name on it? Why all the fuss about marriage when a few years down the road you probably wouldn't want to see each other?
Now, I am single and I have never been married before. I always express my ideas freely and a lot of persons around me are kind of worried that I won't find a husband here because of the way I think about marriage.
I see marriage as a union between two people ordained by God [I'm a christian]. It is a union between two people who love each other, who have accepted each other's weakness and have chosen to build on each other's strength. I see both partners loving and respecting each other. I do not tolerate cheating. This aspect make me a likely candidate for divorce in the eyes of many and the general consensus is that men cheat so just forgive and take them back each time they do.
