Second, married couples can create children which are a part of each of them and third, for the most part there is a peace and contentment in life.
Closeness: If one has never been in a married relationship then the understanding of this closeness might not be seen at a positive attribute. Human beings need positive, close ties to other humans and marriage fulfills that need.
Children: This positive attribute seems like an obvious one but for those who are married the need to create offspring is a token of love between man and wife. This is a great blessing although a great challenge as well to raise good children.
Contentment: Even with disagreements between couples there still is a certain amount of contentment humans can feel in a marriage relationship with the right person. The knowledge of a committed relationship brings peace and security for both in the relationship. It’s work in progress to be sure, but none the less a wonderful way to spend your life.
With the war of words for the institution of marriage, the ongoing battle to keep this important aspect of our society stands strong. There are positive attributes of being man and wife which encourages and sets an example for our youth who are struggling with decisions of whether to get married or not. As the song above says, the reason to bring two souls together in matrimony is because of love. The love we feel for each other as human beings.
