Top 10 Benefits of Married Life
Marriage is one of the greatest social institutions of all times. Yes, there are a lot of people in the world who don’t believe in this concept, and think that it leads to a lot of pressures and expectations. However, those who are in it and have experienced great pleasure out of it can vouch for the fact that it is the central point to a lot of benefits in life.
1. You have a friend for life
When you get married, you have someone to take care of you all the time. There is always someone to listen to your miseries and lend you an ear or a shoulder. There is also someone to celebrate with you when you have some victorious moments in your life. In other words, there is always someone for you, just a call away, to know exactly what’s going on in your mind or life. This kind of lifelong companionship is very difficult to get these days.
2. There is no individual monetary stress
Your individual financial stress starts to get relaxed, because most of your expenditures are shared. Ranging from house rents to saving for the future, every kind of expenditure has two contributors. And since there are incomes of two people running one household, the standard and quality of life is also bound to get better.
3. You get an extended family
With marriage, you get so many new relationships – so many more sisters and brothers in-law to look forward to, and so many more nephews and nieces to play with. You basically have more people to share your joys with, and celebrate occasions with.
4. Your safety is ensured
Even if your husband passes away, he will leave behind his savings in your name to ensure that you lead a comfortable life, come what may. That way, your safety and security is looked at, when you are married, because you mean the world to your husband.
5. You learn discipline
Believe it or not, marriage has the capability to discipline people in more ways than one. You automatically start to know your dos and don’ts, and understand the boundaries between what can be taken for granted and what can’t. Plus, since you have added responsibility of a husband or kids, you become more conscious of your decisions and lead a disciplined life, such that it brings happiness to all around you. You basically can’t afford to be spontaneously crazy in a marriage, because your decisions affect your husband as well, and not just you.
